Psalm 140:5 Parallel
CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
Have hid a snare for me - They hunted David as they would a dangerous wild beast: one while striving to pierce him with the spear; another to entangle him in their snares, so as to take and sacrifice him before the people, on pretense of his being an enemy to the state.
Selah - This is the truth.

St. Thomas Aquinas—On Prayer and The Contemplative Life
How the Silent and the Talkative are to be Admonished.
A trap seizes him by the heel; a snare holds him fast.
On my right the tribe attacks; they lay snares for my feet, they build their siege ramps against me.
like a lion in cover he lies in wait. He lies in wait to catch the helpless; he catches the helpless and drags them off in his net.
Keep me free from the trap that is set for me, for you are my refuge.
Since they hid their net for me without cause and without cause dug a pit for me,
Those who want to kill me set their traps, those who would harm me talk of my ruin; all day long they scheme and lie.
They spread a net for my feet-- I was bowed down in distress. They dug a pit in my path-- but they have fallen into it themselves.
