New American Standard Bible
15 The nations have sunk down (A)in the pit which they have made;
In the (B)net which they hid, their own foot has been caught.
16 The Lord has (C)made Himself known;
He has (D)executed judgment.
In the work of his own hands the wicked is snared. [a]Higgaion [b]Selah.
New International Version
15 The nations have fallen into the pit they have dug;(A)
their feet are caught in the net they have hidden.(B)
16 The Lord is known by his acts of justice;
the wicked are ensnared by the work of their hands.[a](C)
17 The wicked go down to the realm of the dead,(D)
all the nations that forget God.(E)
