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.
The arrogant dig pits to trap me, contrary to your law.
Let the wicked fall into their own nets, while I pass by in safety.
The evil deeds of the wicked ensnare them; the cords of their sins hold them fast.
The righteousness of the upright delivers them, but the unfaithful are trapped by evil desires.
