The enemies plot against David (Ps 38:12-38:12)

“Those who seek my life

Lay their snares.

Those who seek to hurt me

Speak of ruin.

Those who seek to hurt me

Meditate treachery all day long.”

The enemies of David who wanted to hurt and destroy him were laying their snares all around. They spoke of his ruin. They spent their whole day meditating on various treacherous deeds against him.
