Day and night they go about it upon the walls thereof: mischief also and sorrow are in the midst of it.

Its walls are patrolled day and night against invaders, but the real danger is wickedness within the city.

What does Psalm 55:10 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Psalms 55:10

Day and night they go about it, upon the walls thereof
That is, "violence" and "strife" go about the walls of it continually; men of violence and contention are the only watchmen of it: a city must be sadly guarded that has no better watch than this;

mischief also and sorrow [are] in the midst of it;
it was full of wickedness within and without; the city, as Aben Ezra observes, was like a circle; violence and strife were as a line round about it, and mischief and sorrow the centre of it: and these two commonly go together; where mischief is, sorrow follows.
