Who are you, that you are so afraid of humans who will die, descendants of mere men, who have been made like grass? 13 As a result, you have forgotten the LORD who made you, who stretched out the heavens and laid the earth's foundations, and you live in constant fear every day because of the oppressor's fury, since he's ready to destroy. Now where is the oppressor's fury?
