His feet thrust him into a net and he wanders into its mesh.
"For he is thrown into the net by his own feet, And he steps on the webbing.
"The wicked walk into a net. They fall into a pit that’s been dug in the path.
They get all tangled up in their own red tape,
His feet take him into the net, and he goes walking into the cords.
For they are thrust into a net by their own feet, and they walk into a pitfall.
For he is cast into a net by his own feet, And he walks into a snare.

1 tn See Ps 25:15.
2 tn The word שְׂבָכָה (sÿvakhah) is used in scripture for the lattice window (2 Kgs 1:2). The Arabic cognate means “to be intertwined.” So the term could describe a net, matting, grating, or lattice. Here it would be the netting stretched over a pit.
