Psalm 36:3 Parallel
Commentary
Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

On the metonymical use of נפשׁ, like τὸ ὀρεκτικόν for ὄρεξις, vid., Psychol. S. 203 tr. p. 239. The climax of desire is to swallow David up, i.e., to overpower him and clear him out of the way so that there is not a trace of him left. בּלּענוּהוּ with ע before נ, as in Psalm 132:6, and frequently; on the law of the vowels which applies to this, vid., Ewald, ֗60, a. שׂמחי רעתי is a short form of expression for רעתי שׂמחים (בּ) על. To put on shame and dishonour (Psalm 109:29, cf. Psalm 18), so that these entirely cover them, and their public external appearance corresponds with their innermost nature.
