The evil ones (Ps 62:3-62:4)

“How long will you assail a person?

How long will you batter your victim?

All of you!

You are like a leaning wall!

You are like a tottering fence!

They only plan

To bring down a person of prominence.

They take pleasure in falsehood.

They bless with their mouths,

But inwardly they curse.”

Selah

David addressed the evil ones directly, all of you. He wanted to know how long would they assail people and batter their victims. They were like a leaning wall or a tottering fence. They only wanted to bring down the important people. They actually enjoyed lies. They blessed with their mouths but were inwardly cursing. This section ends with a musical interlude meditative pause, a Selah.
