Psalms 37:32

The wicked watches the righteous, and seeks to slay him.
Read Chapter 37

Augustine of Hippo

AD 430
"The wicked watcheth the righteous, and seeketh to slay him" (ver. 32). For he says, what it was foretold in the book of Wisdom that he should say, "He is grievous unto us, even to behold; for his life is not like other men's." Therefore he "seeks to slay him." What? Doth the Lord, who keepeth him, who dwelleth with him, who departeth not from his lips, from his heart, doth He forsake him? What then becomes of what was said before: "And He forsaketh not His Saints"? ...

George Leo Haydock

AD 1849
Death, mortificare. Some read perdere, or occidere. The wicked are constantly laying snares for destruction, (Calmet) and to draw others into mortal sin. (Worthington)

Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation. - 2 Peter 1:20
