A little commentary on today’s verse: “Hunters once caught wild animals by digging a pit and covering it with a thin layer of dirt. The animal, not seeing the pit beneath the leaves and grass, would fall into it. The wicked dig similar pits for good men, but the Lord leads them to fall into their own traps.

In war, men would roll great stones – too heavy to lift – from walls or cliffs to crush their enemies. But God promises such figurative stones will roll back on the wicked.”

Proverbs 26:27
