Psalm 50:17

Seeing thou hatest instruction, and castest my words behind thee.

Seeing thou hatest instruction,.... Or "correction" {z}; to be reproved or reformed by the statutes and covenant they declared to others; they taught others, but not themselves, Romans 2:21; or evangelical instruction, the doctrines of grace, and of Christ; for, as concerning the Gospel, they were enemies, Romans 11:28; and since they were haters of that, they ought not to have been teachers of others;

and castest my words behind thee; the doctrines of the Gospel, which they despised and rejected with the utmost abhorrence, as loathsome, and not fit to be looked upon and into; and also the ordinances of it, the counsel of God, which they rejected against themselves,

Acts 13:45.

{z} dowm "correctionem", Vatablus; "correptionem", Gejerus.
