The cords of the grave coiled around me; the snares of death confronted me.
The cords of Sheol surrounded me; The snares of death confronted me.
The grave wrapped its ropes around me; death itself stared me in the face.
Hell's ropes cinched me tight; death traps barred every exit.
The cords of hell were round me: the nets of death came on me.
the cords of Sheol entangled me, the snares of death confronted me.
The sorrows of Sheol surrounded me; The snares of death confronted me.
