Keep me from the jaws of the trap which they have set for me,
And from the snares of those who do iniquity.
The proud have hidden a trap for me, and cords;
They have spread a net by the wayside;
They have set snares for me. Selah.
The wicked have laid a snare for me,
Yet I have not gone astray from Your precepts.
Those who seek my life lay snares for me;
And those who seek to injure me have threatened destruction,
And they devise treachery all day long.
When my spirit was overwhelmed within me,
You knew my path.
In the way where I walk
They have hidden a trap for me.
The teaching of the wise is a fountain of life,
To turn aside from the snares of death.
May an outcry be heard from their houses,
When You suddenly bring raiders upon them;
For they have dug a pit to capture me
And hidden snares for my feet.
