Thematic Bible



And so then, do not let my blood fall to the ground {away from} the presence of Yahweh, for the king of Israel has gone out to seek a single flea, as one hunts a partridge in the mountains."

For man does not know his time. Just as fish are caught in a cruel net and like birds who are seized in a snare, so also {humans} are ensnared at a cruel time when it falls suddenly upon them.

for "in vain is the net scattered, in the sight of any {winged bird}."

Does a bird fall into a trapping net on the earth when there is no snare for it? Does a trapping net spring up from the ground unless it has certainly caught something?

[The] proud have hidden a trap for me, and cords. They have spread out a net along [the] {side} of [the] path. They have set snares for me. Selah

Protect me from [the] {grasp} of [the] trap they have laid for me, and [from the] snares of evildoers. Let [the] wicked fall into their nets, while I escape altogether.

My enemies hunt me without cause, like a bird.


When my spirit faints within me, you know my way. On the path where I walk, they have hidden a trap for me;

[The] proud have hidden a trap for me, and cords. They have spread out a net along [the] {side} of [the] path. They have set snares for me. Selah

Hear this, priests! Give heed, house of Israel! Listen, house of the king! Because the judgment [applies] to you; because you have been a snare for Mizpah, and a net spread out on Tabor;

[The] arrogant have dug pits for me, which [is] not according to your law.

For wicked people are found among my people, they lie in wait like the hiding of fowlers, they set up a trap, they catch humans.

For without cause they secretly hide the pit with their net for me; without cause they dug [it] for my life.

[The] wicked have laid a snare for me, yet I do not wander from your precepts.

Protect me from [the] {grasp} of [the] trap they have laid for me, and [from the] snares of evildoers.

Let a cry for help be heard from their houses when you suddenly bring upon them [the] raiding band, for they have dug a pit to catch me, and they have fixed secretly a trap for my feet.
