Psalms 58:8  (King James Version)
As a snail which melteth, let every one of them pass away: like the untimely birth of a woman, that they may not see the sun.
 


a snail--
{Shabbelool,} in Chaldee {tivlala,} the snail, is probably so called from the Arabic {balla,} to wet, moisten, because of the glutinous slime emitted from its body, by which it appears to waste itself away in its own motion; and in the same manner the wicked prove their own destruction.
