The Passion Translation
15 For the godless nations get trapped
in the very snares they set for others.
The hidden trap they set for the weak
has snapped shut upon themselves—guilty!
16 The Lord is famous for this: his justice will punish the wicked.
While they are digging a pit for others,
they are actually setting the terms for their own judgment.
They will fall into their own pit.
Consider the truth of this and pause in his presence[a]
17 Don’t forget this: all the wicked will one day
fall into the darkness of death’s domain and remain there,
including the nations that forget God and reject his ways.
- Psalm 9:16 The Hebrew word higayon means “to consider the truth of the matter.”
