Bible verse

Keep me from the snares which they have laid for me, and the gins of the workers of iniquity. Let the wicked fall into their own nets, whilst that I withal escape.

Psalm 141:9-10

“Human brutes, like other beasts, find snares and poison in the provision of life, and are allured by their appetites to their destruction.”

Jonathan Swift (1667-1745) was an Anglo-Irish satirist, essayist, political pamphleteer, poet and cleric who became Dean of St Patrick’s Cathedral, Dublin. Swift is remembered for works such as “A Tale of a Tub,” “An Argument Against Abolishing Christianity,” “Gulliver’s Travels” and “A Modest Proposal”
