Muth-labben
        

Title of Psalm 9. Labben is an anagram for Nabal ("the fool" or wicked); "concerning the dying (muth) of the fool," as Psalm 9:12; Psalm 9:16-17, "Thou hast destroyed the wicked, Thou hast put out their name forever and ever." "The wicked is snared in the work of his own hands." Higgaion ("meditation"); Selah ("pause".) "The wicked shall be turned into hell," etc. Saul slain by the Philistines by whom he had sought to slay David, and receiving the last thrust from one of the Amalekites whom he ought to have destroyed, and Nabal ("fool") dying after his selfish surfeit when churlishly he had refused aught to David's men who had guarded him and his, are instances of the death of such world-wise "fools" (1 Samuel 25:26; 1 Samuel 25:38; 2 Samuel 3:33; Psalm 14:1). (See NABAL.) The Septuagint and Vulgate versions read concerning the mysteries of the Son," namely, the divine Son's death, the earnest of His final victory over the last "enemy" (Psalm 9:6).
