Treasury of Scripture Knowledge
I will arise
for they are eager to inflict harm, and they hasten to shed blood.
For they cannot sleep unless they cause harm; they are robbed of sleep until they make someone stumble.
They are eager to do evil, quick to shed innocent blood. Their thoughts are sinful; they crush and destroy.
But you, Lord, are a shield that protects me; you are my glory and the one who restores me.
I will lie down and sleep peacefully, for you, Lord, make me safe and secure.
For they say cruel and deceptive things to me; they lie to me.
