The unjust watches for the just, and seeks to kill him,
Sitting in ambush of the enclosures: in hiding-places he will slay the innocent: his eyes will be hid to the afflicted.
For I heard the slander of many, terror from round about Announce ye, and we will announce. Every man of my peace watching my halting: perhaps he will be persuaded, and we shall prevail against him, and we will take our vengeance of him.

And it was in his coining into the house of a certain of the Pharisees in the sabbath to eat bread, and they were observing him narrowly.
And he was teaching in the day in the temple. And the chief priests and scribes and the first of the people sought to destroy him,
And having observed narrowly, they sent liers-in-wait, feigning themselves to be just, that they might seize upon his word, to deliver him to the beginning and authority of the leader.
