Various words are translated 'net,' some signifying large nets, and others the drag net. Symbolically nets represent devices secretly laid or they would be shunned, even as a bird avoids a net spread in its sight. Proverbs 1:17 . The kingdom of heaven is compared to a net cast into the sea., which gathers good and bad; 'the wicked' will be sorted from 'the just' at the end of the age. Matthew 13:47-49 . Satan and the wicked also prepare their nets and snares. Psalm 141:10; 1 Timothy 3:7 .
