15 The nations have fallen into the pit they dug for others,
their own feet caught, snared by the net they hid.
16 The Eternal is well known, for He has taken action and secured justice;
He has trapped the wicked through the work of their own hands.
[pause with music][a]
17 The wicked are headed for death and the grave;
all the nations who forget the True God will share a similar fate.
