Verse 342. The Bonds That Entrap Men

Who follow craving are assailed,
they tremble as the hare ensnared,
held fast by fetter and by bonds
so long they come to dukkha again.

Explanation: Surrounded by craving the masses tremble like a hare caught in a trap. Shackled by ten fetter and seven sangas, men and women suffer again and again over a long period of time.
