Thematic Bible

He is like a lion eager to tear [his prey],
And like a young lion lurking in hiding places.

The lion [of Assyria] tore enough for his cubs (Assyrian citizens),
Killed [enough prey] for his lionesses,
And filled his lairs with prey
And his dens with torn flesh.

He is to me like a bear lying in wait,
And like a lion [hiding] in secret places.

He lurks in a hiding place like a lion in his lair;
He lies in wait to catch the afflicted;
He catches the afflicted when he draws him into his net.

Does a lion roar in the forest when he has no prey?
Does a young lion growl from his den if he has not captured something?
