Young's Literal Translation

Psalm 124:7 Parallel
CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
Our soul is escaped as a bird out of the snare - This is a fine image; and at once shows the weakness of the Jews, and the cunning of their adversaries. Haman had laid the snare completely for them; humanly speaking there was no prospect of their escape: but the Lord was on their side; and the providence that induced Ahasuerus to call for the book of the records of the kingdom to be read to him, as well indeed as the once very improbable advancement of Esther to the throne of Persia, was the means used by the Lord for the preservation of the whole Jewish people from extermination. God thus broke the snare, and the bird escaped; while the poacher was caught in his own trap, and executed. See the Book of Esther, which is probably the best comment on this Psalm.

2 Corinthians 11:33
But I was lowered in a basket from a window in the wall and slipped through his hands.
quenched the fury of the flames, and escaped the edge of the sword; whose weakness was turned to strength; and who became powerful in battle and routed foreign armies.
My eyes are ever on the LORD, for only he will release my feet from the snare.
Surely he will save you from the fowler's snare and from the deadly pestilence.
Let the wicked fall into their own nets, while I pass by in safety.
Free yourself, like a gazelle from the hand of the hunter, like a bird from the snare of the fowler.
Those who were my enemies without cause hunted me like a bird.
