They hid their net for me without cause;
they dug a pit for me without cause.
The arrogant have dug pits for me;
they violate Your instruction.
The wicked have set a trap for me,
but I have not wandered from Your precepts.
The proud hide a trap with ropes for me;
they spread a net along the path
and set snares for me.Selah
Protect me from the trap they have set for me,
and from the snares of evildoers.
Although my spirit is weak within me,
You know my way.Along this path I travel
they have hidden a trap for me.
for wicked men live among My people.
They watch like fowlers lying in wait.
They set a trap;
they catch men.
Let a cry be heard from their houses
when You suddenly bring raiders against them,
for they have dug a pit to capture me
and have hidden snares for my feet.
Hear this, priests!
Pay attention, house of Israel!
Listen, royal house!
For the judgment applies to you
because you have been a snare at Mizpah
and a net spread out on Tabor.
