King James Bible

Psalm 10:8 Parallel
CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
He sitteth in the lurking places - In this and the following verse there appears to be an allusion to espionage, or setting of spies on a man's conduct; or to the conduct of an assassin or private murderer. He sitteth in lurking places - in secret places; his eyes - spies - are privily set; he lieth in wait secretly: he doth catch the poor, when he draweth him into his net. He is like a hunter that lays his traps and gins, digs his pits, sets his nets; and when the prey falls into them, he destroys its life.

LibraryOne Saying from Three Men
'The wicked hath said in his heart, I shall not be moved.' --PSALM x. 6. 'Because He is at my right hand, I shall not be moved.' --PSALM xvi. 8.

Being Made Archbishop of Armagh, He Suffers Many Troubles. Peace Being Made, from Being Archbishop of Armagh He Becomes Bishop of Down.
"You have heard that it was said to the people long ago, 'You shall not murder, and anyone who murders will be subject to judgment.'
When daylight is gone, the murderer rises up, kills the poor and needy, and in the night steals forth like a thief.
For look, the wicked bend their bows; they set their arrows against the strings to shoot from the shadows at the upright in heart.
The wicked lie in wait for the righteous, intent on putting them to death;
They shoot from ambush at the innocent; they shoot suddenly, without fear.
For he will deliver the needy who cry out, the afflicted who have no one to help.
They slay the widow and the foreigner; they murder the fatherless.
