“Whoever flatters a neighbor
Is spreading a net for the neighbor’s feet.
In the transgressions of the evil
There is a snare.
But the righteous sing.
The righteous rejoice.
The righteous know the rights of the poor.
The wicked have no such understanding.”
If you flatter your neighbor, you are setting a trap or net for his feet. In the very transgression of the evil deed, there is a snare trap. The righteous sing and rejoice. They know about the rights of the poor, while the wicked have no understanding of the poor.
