New International Version
See how the evildoers lie fallen-- thrown down, not able to rise!
King James Bible

Psalm 36:12 Parallel
CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
There are the workers of iniquity fallen - There, in Babylon, are the workers of iniquity fallen, and so cast down that they shall not be able to rise. A prophecy of the destruction of the Babylonish empire by Cyrus. That it was destroyed, is an historical fact; that they were never able to recover their liberty, is also a fact; and that Babylon itself is now blotted out of the map of the universe, so that the site of it is no longer known, is confirmed by every traveler who has passed over those regions.
The word שם sham, There, has been applied by many of the fathers to the pride spoken of in the preceding verse. There, in or by pride, says Augustine, do all sinners perish. There, in heaven, have the evil angels fallen through pride, says St. Jerome. There, in paradise, have our first parents fallen, through pride and disobedience. There, in hell, have the proud and disobedient angels been precipitated - Eusebius, etc. There, by pride, have the persecutors brought God's judgments upon themselves. See Calmet. But the first interpretation is the best.

Declare them guilty, O God! Let their intrigues be their downfall. Banish them for their many sins, for they have rebelled against you.
I crushed them so that they could not rise; they fell beneath my feet.
May the foot of the proud not come against me, nor the hand of the wicked drive me away.
Because of their wickedness do not let them escape; in your anger, God, bring the nations down.
Deliver me from evildoers and save me from those who are after my blood.
Surely you place them on slippery ground; you cast them down to ruin.
May burning coals fall on them; may they be thrown into the fire, into miry pits, never to rise.
