They have prepared a net for my steps.
My soul is bowed down in distress.
They dig a pit ahead of me;
but they fall into its middle themselves! Selah. Bible see other translations

“they fall into its middle themselves.” It is a consistent theme through Scripture that evil people bring evil upon themselves (see commentary on Prov. 1:18). People may set a trap for someone, but eventually they themselves will be trapped.
