CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
Transgressors - בוגדים bogedim. The garment men, the hypocrites; those who act borrowed characters, who go under a eloak; dissemblers.

The righteous will never be uprooted, but the wicked will not remain in the land.
The integrity of the upright guides them, but the unfaithful are destroyed by their duplicity.
