Psalms 57:6

Context

57:6 They have prepared a net to trap me; 1 

I am discouraged. 2 

They have dug a pit for me. 3 

They will fall 4  into it! (Selah)

1 tn Heb “for my feet.”

2 tn Heb “my life bends low.” The Hebrew term נֶפֶשׁ (nefesh) with a pronominal suffix is often equivalent to a pronoun, especially in poetry (see BDB 660 s.v. נֶפֶשׁ 4.a).

3 tn Heb “before me.”

4 tn The perfect form is used rhetorically here to express the psalmist’s certitude. The demise of the enemies is so certain that he can speak of it as already accomplished.
