croucheth, [dakah] and humbleth [shachach]
himself, that the poor [cheyl][chelaka'][chelaka'] may fall [naphal] by his strong ones. [`atsuwm]KJV-Interlinear
crouches, he bows down, And the unfortunate fall by his mighty ones. NASB
The word for crouch, 'dakah,' means to be bent down, to be broken into pieces, to be crushed.
Humbled, is just that. The victim of the wicked, is crushed into a position of humility.
The poor, is a reference to the victims of the wicked, and their fall is their demise at the hands of the wicked and all their co-conspirators.
Since the wicked are driven by their lack of truth, then their drive is blinded due to that lack of truth. This makes all the world a potential victim, and no one, even themselves (all wicked), become victims of their own behavior.
In other passages, the true believers of Christ are always rescued by God, and always remain in the protection of His hands.
Those who are not under His protection, are by default the victims of the wicked, and it is the wicked who persecute the wicked, who will ultimately destroy themselves.
In short it is the wicked who pursue nothing but wickedness and the demise of others, resulting in the demise of themselves.
Remember quickly that wicked people are not limited to criminals and despicable types with scars on their faces or crooked noses.
The wicked includes all who reject or ignore, or are indifferent toward truth. And truth is the content of the scriptures, properly applied, not conveniently defined by self righteous types. The spectrum of the wicked runs from the ascetic to the lascivious.
