"A snare seizes him by the heel, And a trap snaps shut on him.
A trap grabs them by the heel. A noose tightens around them.
Their feet are grabbed and caught, their necks in a noose.
His foot is taken in the net; he comes into its grip.
A trap seizes them by the heel; a snare lays hold of them.
The net takes him by the heel, And a snare lays hold of him.

1 tn This word פָּח (pakh) specifically refers to the snare of the fowler – thus a bird trap. But its plural seems to refer to nets in general (see Job 22:10).
2 tn This word does not occur elsewhere. But another word from the same root means “plait of hair,” and so this term has something to do with a net like a trellis or lattice.
