NET © Notes

sn The contrast is between being rescued or delivered (נָצַל, natsal) and being captured (לָכַד, lakhad). Righteousness is freeing; [evil] desires are enslaving.

tn Heb “taken captive” (so NRSV); NIV, TEV “are trapped.”

tn Heb “but by the desire of the faithless are they taken captive.”
