1  1 Hear, O Lord God, my voice in my
complaint in my musing.
Preserve my life from the fear of
the enemy's plotting.
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
him with integrity.
Suddenly do they shoot at him,
and they do not have fear.
5 They strengthen the mob for evil.
They write things to hide snares.
They said, "Who will see them?", 6 as they
plan out iniquities.
"We have perfected a disguise,
searched out 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  Then by their tongue they made him fall
on the conspirators.
 All that see into them shall shake,
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.

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;

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 sepulcher.
 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.
1 Samuel 6:3 And they said, If ye send away the ark of the God of Israel, send it not empty; ye must at any rate return him a trespass-offering: then ye shall be healed, and it shall be known to you why his hand is not removed from you.
