Psalms 38:19  (King James Version)
But mine enemies are lively, and they are strong: and they that hate me wrongfully are multiplied.

3:1 25:19 Psalms 56:1 Psalms 56:2 59:1-3

are lively, etc
Hebrew being living are strong.
Instead of {chaymin,} "lively" Bp. Lowth would read {chinmon,} "without cause:"--"but mine enemies without cause have
strengthened themselves." As this emendation renders this member of the sentence parallel to the other, it is by no means improbable: see Psalms 35:19 ; 79:5 .* they that.
