1  1 Hear, O Lord God, my voice in my
in my meditation.
Preserve my life from the fear of
the enemy's action.
 
2 Hide me from the conspiracy
of the evil-doers,
from the tumultuous mob of
lawless wicked workers,
 
3 who sharpened their tongue like a sword,
 their bitter word aiming,
4 that they may shoot in secret at
those with integrity.
 
Suddenly do they shoot at him,
and they do not have fear.
5 People strengthen them for evil.
They write books to hide snares.
 
They said, "Who will see them?", 6 as they
devise iniquities.
"We have perfected a fine plan,
searching diligently."
 
And the inward part of a man
is deep and the heart too.
7 Then God shot an arrow at them.
Suddenly they had wounds.
 
8  By their own tongue they're made to fall
over one another.
 All that see them shall flee away,
9 and all mankind did fear,
 
and they did declare God's doing,
and His work wisely viewed.
10 The righteous rejoice in the LORD
and in Him seek refuge.

The Lord's own hand made manifest
for all the world to see.
All those who are upright in heart
shall in the Lord glory.

Hebrews 12:15 See to it that no one fails to obtain the grace of God; that no "root of bitterness" springs up and causes trouble, and by it many become defiled;
Deuteronomy 29:18 lest there should be among you man, or woman, or family, or tribe, whose heart turns away this day from Jehovah our God, to go and serve the gods of these nations; lest there should be among you a root that bears gall and wormwood,
 
Revelation 2:24 But to you I say, the rest who are in Thyatira, as many as have not this doctrine, who have not known the deep things of Satan, as they say, I do not cast upon you any other burden;
 
Psalm 62:9 Common men are a breath, only.
Persons are but a vanity.
On a scale they are measured.
Together they are lighter than air.
 
Revelation 11:9 And men of the peoples and tribes and tongues and nations see their body three days and a half, and they do not suffer their bodies to be put into a sepulchre.
 10 And they that dwell upon the earth rejoice over them, and are full of delight, and shall send gifts one to another, because these, the two prophets, tormented them that dwell upon the earth.
 11 And after the three days and a half the spirit of life from God came into them, and they stood upon their feet; and great fear fell upon those beholding them.
 12 And I heard a great voice out of the heaven saying to them, Come up here; and they went up to the heaven in the cloud, and their enemies beheld them.
 13 And in that hour there was a great earthquake, and the tenth of the city fell, and seven thousand names of men were slain in the earthquake. And the remnant were filled with fear, and gave glory to the God of the heaven.
