Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Psalms 10:7-10

_ _ The malignity and deceit (Psalms 140:3) of such are followed by acts combining cunning, fraud, and violence (compare Proverbs 1:11, Proverbs 1:18), aptly illustrated by the habits of the lion, and of hunters taking their prey. “Poor,” in Psalms 10:8, Psalms 10:10, Psalms 10:14, represents a word peculiar to this Psalm, meaning the sad or sorrowful; in Psalms 10:9, as usual, it means the pious or meek sufferer.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Psalms 10:1-11.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Psalms 10:7

Tongue — Under his fair and plausible speeches, mischief is hid and covered. Vanity — Or, injury, the vexation or oppression of other men.
