They have prepared a net to trap me; 1  I am discouraged. 2  They have dug a pit for me. 3  They will fall 4  into it! (Selah)

NET © Notes

tn Heb “for my feet.”

tn Heb “my life bends low.” The Hebrew term נֶפֶשׁ (nefesh) with a pronominal suffix is often equivalent to a pronoun, especially in poetry (see BDB 660 s.v. נֶפֶשׁ 4.a).

tn Heb “before me.”

tn The perfect form is used rhetorically here to express the psalmist’s certitude. The demise of the enemies is so certain that he can speak of it as already accomplished.
