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.

17 The wicked will [c](E)return to [d]Sheol,
Even all the nations who (F)forget God.
