The Usage is actually taken from the Verse(s) of English+Malayalam Holy Bible.

Psalms 10:9

He lies in wait secretly, as a lion in his den; He lies in wait to catch the poor; He catches the poor when he draws him into his net.

സിംഹം മുറ്റുകാട്ടിൽ എന്നപോലെ അവൻ മറവിടത്തിൽ പതുങ്ങുന്നു; എളിയവനെ പിടിപ്പാൻ അവൻ പതിയിരിക്കുന്നു; എളിയവനെ തന്റെ വലയിൽ ചാടിച്ചു പിടിക്കുന്നു.

Luke 5:10

and so also were James and John, the sons of Zebedee, who were partners with Simon. And Jesus said to Simon, "Do not be afraid. From now on you will catch men."

ശിമോന്റെ കൂട്ടാളികളായ യാക്കോബ് യോഹന്നാൻ എന്ന സെബെദിമക്കൾക്കും അവ്വണ്ണം തന്നേ. യേശു ശിമോനോടു: ഭയപ്പെടേണ്ടാ ഇന്നു മുതൽ നീ മനുഷ്യരെ പിടിക്കുന്നവൻ ആകും എന്നു പറഞ്ഞു.

Luke 20:26

But they could not catch Him in His words in the presence of the people. And they marveled at His answer and kept silent.

അങ്ങനെ അവർ ജനത്തിന്റെ മുമ്പിൽ വെച്ചു അവനെ വാക്കിൽ പിടിപ്പാൻ കഴിയാതെ അവന്റെ ഉത്തരത്തിൽ ആശ്ചര്യപ്പെട്ടു മിണ്ടാതിരുന്നു.
