Psalms 17:12

Like as a lion [that] is greedy of his prey
Or "the likeness of him is as a lion" F9; meaning Saul, as Kimchi interprets it; or everyone of them that compassed them about, as Aben Ezra observes; sometimes wicked and persecuting princes are compared to lions, for their strength and cruelty; see (Proverbs 28:15) (2 Timothy 4:17) ; so the devil is called a roaring lion, (1 Peter 5:8) ; and the antichristian beast is said to have the mouth of a lion, (Revelation 13:2) ;

and as it were a young lion lurking in secret places;
to leap upon its prey, and seize it at once, as it has opportunity; this denotes the secret and insidious method which the enemies of Christ take to do mischief; see (Psalms 10:9,10) .
