    Definitions for Psalms 31:4

    Art - "Are"; second person singular.
    Privily - Secretly.

    Clarke's Commentary on Psalms 31:4

    Pull me out of the net - They have hemmed me in on every side, and I cannot escape but by miracle.

    Barnes' Notes on Psalms 31:4

    Pull me out of the net - See the notes at Psalm 9:15.

    That they have laid privily for me - That my enemies have laid for me. The phrase "laid privily" refers to the custom of "hiding" or "concealing" a net or gin, so that the wild beast that was to be taken could not see it, or would fall into it unawares. Thus, his enemies designed to overcome him, by springing a net upon him at a moment when he was not aware of it, and at a place where he did not suspect it.

    For thou art my strength - My stronghold. My hope of defense is in thee, and thee alone.
