For without cause they hid their net for me;
Without cause they dug a pit for my soul.
“For he is thrown into the net by his own feet,
And he steps on the webbing.
The nations have sunk down in the pit which they have made;
In the net which they hid, their own foot has been caught.
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.
O Lord my God, if I have done this,
If there is injustice in my hands,
Indeed, none of those who wait for You will be ashamed;
Those who deal treacherously without cause will be ashamed.
To shoot from concealment at the blameless;
Suddenly they shoot at him, and do not fear.
Those who hate me without a cause are more than the hairs of my head;
Those who would destroy me are powerful, being wrongfully my enemies;
What I did not steal, I then have to restore.
The arrogant have dug pits for me,
Men who are not in accord with Your law.
But they have done this to fulfill the word that is written in their Law, ‘They hated Me without a cause.’
