Thus with your mouth ye have boasted against me
Or, "magnified against me" F1; spoke great swelling words of vanity, or had a mouth opened to speak great things and blasphemy against God, as antichrist is said to do, ( Revelation 13:5 Revelation 13:6 ) , what is spoken against the Lord's people is taken by him as spoken against himself: and have multiplied your words against me;
not in prayer, by deprecations or supplications, as the word F2 used sometimes signifies; but in reproaches and calumnies, vilifying expressions and hard speeches, against his people, in great numbers; which is all one as if they were directed against him: I have heard them;
these the Lord takes notice of, and will call to an account for, either here or hereafter; see ( Jude 1:15 ) .
