Psalm 36:1 Parallel
Commentary
Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

The poet takes up this malignant "now our eye sees it" and gives another turn to it. With יהוה, alternates in Psalm 35:22, Psalm 35:23, cf. Psalm 35:17, אדני, the pronominal force of which is revived in the combination אלחי ואדני (vid., Psalm 16:2). חעיר, carrying its object within itself, signifies to stir, rouse up, and הקיץ, to break off, tear one's self away, gather one's self up from, sleep. "To my right," viz., to prove it by facts; "to my cause," to carry it on in my defence.
