Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Psalms 5:9

_ _ The wicked are not reliable because by nature they are full of wickedness, or literally, “wickednesses,” of every kind (Romans 8:7).

_ _ sepulchre — a dwelling-place of corruption, emitting moral putridness.

_ _ flatter — or, “make smooth.”

_ _ their tongue — speaks deceitfully.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Psalms 5:7-12.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Psalms 5:9

Throat — Wide opened ready to devour all that come within their reach. A metaphor from wild beasts gaping for the prey.
