Romans 11:9 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

David saith

Psalm 69:23, Psalm 69:24. It is doubtful whether David was the author. Some high authorities are inclined to ascribe it to Jeremiah. David here may mean nothing more than the book of Psalm.

Table

Representing material prosperity: feasting in wicked security. Some explain of the Jews' presumptuous confidence in the law.

Snare (παγίδα)

From πήγνυμι to make fast. The anchor is called παγὶς the maker-fast of the ships.

Trap (θήραν)

Lit., a hunting. Only here in the New Testament, and neither in the Hebrew nor Septuagint. Many render net, following Psalm 35:8, where the word is used for the Hebrew resheth net. No kind of snare will be wanting. Their presumptuous security will become to them a snare, a hunting, a stumbling-block.

A recompense (ἀνταπόδομα)

Substituted by the Septuagint for the Hebrew, to them at ease. It carries the idea of a just retribution.
