7 They are always cursing, lying,
and planning evil things to do.
8 They hide just outside the villages,
waiting to kill innocent people,
always looking for any helpless person they can hurt.
9 They are like lions hiding in the bushes
to catch weak and helpless animals.
They lay their traps for the poor,
who are caught in their nets.
New International Version
7 His mouth is full(A) of lies and threats;(B)
trouble and evil are under his tongue.(C)
8 He lies in wait(D) near the villages;
from ambush he murders the innocent.(E)
His eyes watch in secret for his victims;
9 like a lion in cover he lies in wait.
He lies in wait to catch the helpless;(F)
he catches the helpless and drags them off in his net.(G)
