Treasury of Scripture Knowledge
A lion's whelp, is Judah, From the prey, my son hast thou come up! He hath stooped - hath crouched As a lion - or as a lioness, Who shall rouse him?
He hath knelt - hath lain down, Like a strong lion, yea like a lioness, Who shall rouse him up? Such as bless thee are each one blessed, But, such, as curse thee, are each one cursed.
Serve Yahweh with reverence, and exult with trembling:
Then said he unto me Hast thou seen O son of man? Is it too small a thing for the house of Judah, to be committing the abominations which they have committed here, - that they have fled the land with violence and have again provoked me to anger and there they are! putting the branch to my nose.
Wise in heart, and alert in vigour, What man hath hardened himself against him, and prospered!
But if, an arm like GOD, thou hast, and, with a voice like his, thou canst thunder,
If, with the footmen, thou hast run and they have wearied thee, How then wilt thou hotly contend with horses? Though in a safe land thou art confident, Yet how wilt thou deal with the proud banks of the Jordan?
1 Corinthians 10:22
Or are we to provoke the Lord to jealousy? Are we mightier than he?
