The wicked man will see and be vexed, he will gnash his teeth and waste away; the longings of the wicked will come to nothing.
The wicked will see it and be vexed, He will gnash his teeth and melt away; The desire of the wicked will perish.
The wicked will be infuriated when they see this. They will grind their teeth in anger; they will slink away, their hopes thwarted.
Someone wicked takes one look and rages, Blusters away but ends up speechless. There's nothing to the dreams of the wicked. Nothing.
The sinner will see it with grief; he will be wasted away with envy; the desire of the evil-doers will come to nothing.
The wicked see it and are angry; they gnash their teeth and melt away; the desire of the wicked comes to nothing.
The wicked will see it and be grieved; He will gnash his teeth and melt away; The desire of the wicked shall perish.

1 tn The Hebrew text uses the singular; the representative wicked individual is in view as typifying the group (note the use of the plural form in v. 10).
2 tn Heb “his teeth he will gnash.” In Pss 35:16 and 37:12 this action is associated with a vicious attack.
3 tn This could mean that the desires of the wicked will go unfulfilled. Another possibility is that “desire” refers by metonymy to the object desired and acquired. In this case the point is that the wicked will lose what they desired so badly and acquired by evil means (see Ps 10:3).
