Proverbs 6:5

Context

Deliver yourself like a gazelle from a snare, 1  and like a bird from the trap 2  of the fowler.

XREF

Ps 11:1; Ps 124:7; Pr 1:17

NET © Notes

tn Heb “from the hand.” Most translations supply “of the hunter.” The word “hand” can signify power, control; so the meaning is that of a gazelle freeing itself from a snare or a trap that a hunter set.

tc Heb “hand” (so KJV, NAB, NRSV). Some mss and versions have it as “trap,” which may very well represent an interpretation too.
