Dearly beloved brethren, the Bible, reveals something you must never ever forget as long as you are on this side of heaven.

It says, you should never be surprised if you are hated without any cause.. See the following.

1Jo 3:13 Marvel not, my brethren, if the world hate you.

See what the world did to Jesus our Lord.

John 15:24 -25 If I had not done among them the works which none other man did, they had not had sin: but now have they both seen and hated both me and my Father. 15:25 But this cometh to pass, that the word might be fulfilled that is written in their law, They hated me without a cause.

The wicked have laid a snare [ their traps ] for me: yet I erred not [ gone astray, wander, ] from thy precepts [ your teachings ]. – Psalms 119:110

See what the world shall be doing to you for loving Jesus.

Psalms 44:22 Yea, for thy sake are we killed all the day long; we are counted as sheep for the slaughter.

Rom 8:36 As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.

Philippians 1:29 For unto you it is given in the behalf of Christ, not only to believe on him, but also to suffer for his sake;
John 17:14 I have given them thy word; and the world hath hated them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.
Mark 13:13 And ye shall be hated of all men for my name’s sake: but he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.
.John 15:18-21 If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you. 15:19 If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you. 15:20 Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you; if they have kept my saying, they will keep yours also. 15:21 But all these things will they do unto you for my name’s sake, because they know not him that sent me.

Beloved brethren, this was the predicament of king David, his love for God and desire to wholeheartedly obey Him, brought many foes against him and they tirelessly plotted to kill him. See it yourself.

The wicked have laid a snare [ their traps ] for me: yet I erred not [ gone astray, wander, ] from thy precepts [ your teachings ]. – Psalms 119:110

See this passage in other Bible versions.

NLT
Psalms 119:110 The wicked have set their traps for me, but I will not turn from your commandments.

AMP BIBLE
Psalm 119:110 The wicked have laid a snare for me, yet I do not stray from Your precepts.

See how this passage was amplified

The wicked have laid a snare for me Yet I erred not from thy precepts. I have not allowed their machinations to interfere with my obedience.

Here is, 1. David in danger of losing his life. There is but a step between him and death, for the wicked have laid a snare for him Saul did so many a time, because he hated him for his piety. Wherever he was he found some design or other laid against him to take away his life, for it was that they aimed at. What they could not effect by open force they hoped to compass by treachery.
(2.) He has not yet erred from God’s precepts, and therefore it is to be hoped he will not. He had stood many a shock and kept his ground, and surely that grace which had helped him hitherto would not fail him, but would still prevent his wanderings.

The Bible further affirmed, how they laid snares for king David, because of his righteous stances.

Psalms 119:85 The proud have digged pits for me, which are not after thy law.
Psalms 119:95 The wicked have waited for me to destroy me: but I will consider thy testimonies.

Dearly beloved, don’t be surprised, if you are hated because of your faith in Jesus.

But then do what king David and saints of old in Bible days and even now in our contemporary times. Be determine to cleave to the Lord and be obedient to Him, implicitly. The good Lord shall help you in particular in Jesus name.

Romans 8:35-39 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? 8:36 As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter. 8:37 Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us. 8:38 For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, 8:39 Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
The wicked have laid a snare [ their traps ] for me: yet I erred not [ gone astray, wander, ] from thy precepts [ your teachings ]. – Psalms 119:110
