(7) Snare.--Another rapid transition to a favourite figure, that of the hunter's net. (Comp. Psalm 10:9, &c)

Verse 7. - Our soul is escaped as a bird out of the snare of the fowlers (comp. Psalm 91:3; Psalm 140:5; Psalm 141:10). Another metaphor. We have been like birds taken in the "snare," or net, of a fowler. But now we are escaped - not, however, of our own strength or of our own cleverness. The snare is broken for us by God's providence, and so we are escaped.
