CommentaryBarnes' Notes on the Bible
How long shall they utter and speak hard things? - The word rendered utter means to pour forth - as water from a fountain; to pour forth copiously.

The phrase "hard things" means proud, unfeeling, insolent things; things which are unjust, unkind, severe, harsh.
And all the workers of iniquity boast themselves? - Boast of their power and their success. How long shall they be permitted to have such success as may seem to justify them in their exultation?

For the choir director. A Maskil of David, when Doeg the Edomite came and told Saul and said to him, "David has come to the house of Ahimelech." Why do you boast in evil, O mighty man? The lovingkindness of God endures all day long.
Behold, they belch forth with their mouth; Swords are in their lips, For, they say, "Who hears?"
Do not lift up your horn on high, Do not speak with insolent pride.'"
That when the wicked sprouted up like grass And all who did iniquity flourished, It was only that they might be destroyed forevermore.
But as for those who turn aside to their crooked ways, The LORD will lead them away with the doers of iniquity. Peace be upon Israel.
