The howling dogs are back (Ps 59:14-59:15)

“Each evening

They come back.

They howl like dogs.

They are prowling about the city.

They roam about for food.

They growl if they do not get their fill.”

Just like verses 6-7 of this psalm, the howling dogs are back prowling the city. This time they are looking for food. They growl until they filled. Thus the common term of enemies is they are like a pack of growling dogs.

The evening howling dogs (Ps 59:6-59:7)

“Each evening

They come back.

They are howling like dogs.

They are prowling about the city.

There they are.

They bellow with their mouths.

They have sharp words on their lips.

They think.

‘Who will hear us?’”

The wicked ones are like howling dogs at night. They prowl around the city bellowing. They have sharp words on their lips. They think that no one can hear them so they growl and shout louder.
