David describes his enemies (Ps 35:19-35:21)

“Do not let my treacherous enemies rejoice over me!

Those who hate me without cause

Wink their eyes.

They do not speak peace.

They conceive deceitful words.

They are against

Those who are quiet in the land.

They open wide their mouths against me.

They say.

Aha! Aha!

Our eyes have seen it!”

David’s treacherous enemies rejoiced over his troubles. They hated him without cause. They winked their eyes. They did not speak of peace but only with deceitful words against those who were the quiet peacemakers of the land. They opened their mouths against David. They said, “aha, aha.” They saw his evil with their own evil eyes.
