Psalm 37:36 Parallel
CommentaryKeil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament
The verb הגה unites in itself the two meanings of meditating and of meditative utterance (vid., Psalm 2:1), just as אמר those of thinking and speaking. Psalm 37:31 in this connection affirms the stability of the moral nature. The walk of the righteous has a fixed inward rule, for the Tפra is to him not merely an external object of knowledge and a compulsory precept; it is in his heart, and, because it is the Tפra of his God whom he loves, as the motive of his actions closely united with his own will. On תּמעד, followed by the subject in the plural, compare Psalm 18:35; Psalm 73:2 Chethמb.
Treasury of Scripture Knowledge
that the exulting of the wicked is short, and the joy of the godless but for a moment?
In just a little while, the wicked will be no more; though you look carefully at his place, he will not be there.
When the wicked increase, transgression increases, but the righteous will look upon their downfall.
You shall seek those who contend with you, but you shall not find them; those who war against you shall be as nothing at all.
The merchants among the peoples hiss at you; you have come to a dreadful end and shall be no more forever.'"
Then the iron, the clay, the bronze, the silver, and the gold, all together were broken in pieces, and became like the chaff of the summer threshing floors; and the wind carried them away, so that not a trace of them could be found. But the stone that struck the image became a great mountain and filled the whole earth.
Then he shall turn his face back toward the fortresses of his own land, but he shall stumble and fall, and shall not be found.
