O God, the proud are risen against me, and the assemblies of violent men have sought after my soul and have not set thee before them.
But those that sought my soul, to destroy it, descended into the lower parts of the earth.
Let them be ashamed and confounded that seek after my life; let them be turned backward and put to confusion that desire my hurt.
The wicked have waited for me to destroy me, but I will consider thy testimonies.
1 Samuel 20:1
And David fled from Naioth in Ramah and came and said before Jonathan, What have I done? What is my iniquity or what is my sin before thy father that he seeks my life?
Lord, they have killed thy prophets and ruined thine altars; and I am left alone, and they seek my life.
For I have heard the slander of many; fear was on every side; while they took counsel together against me, they devised to take away my life.
Yet, LORD, thou dost know all their counsel against me to slay me; do not forgive their iniquity, neither blot out their sin from thy sight, but let them be overthrown before thee; deal thus with them in the time of thine anger.
For strangers are risen up against me, and oppressors seek after my soul; they have not set God before them. Selah.
Those that seek after my life lay snares for me, and those that seek my hurt speak calamities and imagine deceits all the day long.
2 Samuel 21:5
And they answered the king, The man that consumed us and that devised against us, let us destroy him that nothing of him remains in any of the borders of Israel.
2 Samuel 16:11
And David said to Abishai, and to all his slaves, Behold, my son, who came forth of my bowels, seeks my life; how much more now a son of Jemini? Let him alone, and let him curse, for the LORD has bidden him.
Let them be confounded and put to shame that seek after my soul; let them be turned back and brought to confusion that devise my hurt.
Let them be ashamed and confounded together that seek after my life to destroy it; let them be driven backward and put to shame that wish me evil.
And he said, Who made thee a prince and a judge over us? Doest thou intend to kill me as thou killed the Egyptian? And Moses feared and said, Surely this thing is known.
Wilt thou kill me as thou didst the Egyptian yesterday?
1 Samuel 22:23
Abide thou with me; do not fear, for he that seeks my life seeks thy life; it is good that thou shalt be kept with me.
Who shall separate us from the charity of Christ? shall tribulation or distress or persecution or famine or nakedness or peril or sword?
