What does Psalm 141:9 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Psalms 141:9

Keep me from the snare [which] they have laid for me
Either Saul, who gave him a wife to be a snare to him, and set men to watch his house and take him; or the Ziphites, who proposed to Saul to deliver him into his hands; see ( 1 Samuel 18:21 ) ( 19:11 ) ( 1 Samuel 23:19 1 Samuel 23:20 ) .

and the gins of the workers of iniquity;
the transgressions of wicked men are snares to others, by way of example; and so are the doctrines of false teachers, and the temptations of Satan, from all which good men desire to be kept, ( Proverbs 29:6 ) ( Hosea 9:8 ) ( 2 Timothy 2:26 ) ; and it is the Lord alone that keeps and preserves from them, or breaks the snare and delivers them, ( Psalms 124:7 ) .
