15 Our Lord, the nations fell
    into their own pits,
    and their feet were caught
    in their own traps.
16 You showed what you are like,
and you made certain
    that justice is done,
    but evil people are trapped
    by their own evil deeds.
17 The wicked will go down
    to the world of the dead
    to be with those nations
    that forgot about you.
