CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
They that speak in proverbs - המשלים hammoshelim, from משל mashal, to rule, to exercise authority; hence a weighty proverbial saying, because admitted as an axiom for the government of life.

And a flame from the city of Sihon:

With the lords of the heights of Arnon.
