Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

See commentary on Psalms 58:8-9.


Psalms 58:9

_ _ he shall take them away as with a whirlwind — literally, “blow him (them) away.”

_ _ both living ... wrath — literally, “as the living” or fresh as the heated or burning — that is, thorns — all easily blown away, so easily and quickly the wicked. The figure of the “snail” perhaps alludes to its loss of saliva when moving. Though obscure in its clauses, the general sense of the passage is clear.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Psalms 58:6-11.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Psalms 58:9

(g) Before your pots can feel the thorns, he shall take them away as with a whirlwind, both living, and in [his] wrath.

(g) As flesh is taken raw out of the pot before the water boils: so he desires God to destroy their enterprises before they bring them to pass.
