Psalm 10:2 Parallel
Commentary
Clarke's Commentary on the Bible

The wicked in his pride - On no principle of nature or reason can we account for a wicked man persecuting a humble follower of God because of his religion. The devil hates godliness; and the wicked man hates it also because the devil is in his heart.
