Thematic Bible: Of persecutors

Thematic Bible

For dogs have surrounded me; A band of evildoers has encompassed me; They pierced my hands and my feet.

Deliver my soul from the sword, My only life from the power of the dog.

But the Lord stood with me and strengthened me, so that through me the proclamation might be fully accomplished, and that all the Gentiles might hear; and I was rescued out of the lion's mouth.

They open wide their mouth at me, As a ravening and a roaring lion.

Then the waters would have engulfed us, The stream would have swept over our soul; Then the raging waters would have swept over our soul."
