New American Bible (Revised Edition)
15 Then I will declare all your praises,
sing joyously of your salvation
in the gates of daughter Zion.[a]
16 The nations fall into the pit they dig;
in the snare they hide, their own foot is caught.
17 [b]The Lord is revealed in making judgments:
by the deeds they do the wicked are trapped.(A)
