One who traps birds. All biblical references are figurative. A variety of means are mentioned in Scripture: snares (Psalm 91:3; Psalm 124:7 ); traps (Psalm 141:9; Jeremiah 5:26-27 ); ropes (Job 18:10 KJV, “snare”); and nets ( Hosea 7:12 ). God is praised as One who delivers from the fowler's snare (Psalm 91:3; Psalm 124:7 ), an image of the power of the wicked. Opposition to the prophet Hosea is pictured as a fowler's snare set in the Temple (Hosea 9:8 ). Hosea 7:12 pictures Israel as a dumb bird which God will catch with a net so the nation can be disciplined. Proverbs 6:1-2 ,Proverbs 6:1-2,6:5 pictures indebtedness as a snare to be avoided. Jesus warned that the day of God's coming judgment would be as unexpected as the closing of a trap ( Luke 21:35 ).
