Yahweh is my refuge (Ps 141:8-141:10)

“But my eyes are turned toward you!

Yahweh!

O God!

In you I seek refuge.

Leave me not defenseless!

Keep me from the trap

That they have laid for me!

Keep me from the snares of evildoers!

Let the wicked together fall into their own nets

While I will escape.”

This psalm ends with an assertion of God, Yahweh, the Lord, as the refuge of David. His eyes were turned toward Yahweh. He did not want to be without any defenses. He wanted to keep away from their traps that were set for him. He wanted to escape all the snares of these evildoers. Rather he hoped that they would fall into their own trap nets, while he would escape.
