|New International Version (© 2011)|
The trouble they cause recoils on them; their violence comes down on their own heads.
King James Bible
His mischief shall return upon his own head, and his violent dealing shall come down upon his own pate.
American Standard Version
His mischief shall return upon his own head, And his violence shall come down upon his own pate.
Young's Literal Translation
Return doth his perverseness on his head, And on his crown his violence cometh down.
Psalm 7:16 Additional TranslationsClarke's Commentary on the Bible
Shall come down upon his own pate - Upon his scalp, קדקד kodkod, the top of the head. It may refer to knocking the criminal on the head, in order to deprive him of life. Had scalping been known in those days, I should have thought the reference might be to that barbarous custom.
