By the transgression of his lips an evil person will fall into a snare,
but the righteous person will escape from trouble. Bible

“will escape from.” The literal Hebrew is “will go out from.” While the tone of “escape” is certainly true, and comes from the contrast with the first stanza, there is also a sense in which sometimes the righteous person will see the trouble and turn away from it early, and not really get caught up in it.
