    Barnes' Notes on Psalms 141:9

    Keep me from the snares ... - See the notes at Psalm 11:6. Compare Psalm 38:12; Psalm 69:22; Psalm 91:3. The secret plans which they have laid against me.

    And the gins of the workers of iniquity - Wicked men; men who seek my destruction. On the word gins, see the notes at Isaiah 8:14. The gin is a trap or snare to catch birds or wild animals. The word used here is the same which occurs in Psalm 18:5, and which is there rendered "snare." See the notes at that passage. Compare also Psalm 64:5; Psalm 69:22; Psalm 106:36; Psalm 140:5, where the same word occurs.
