O God, the proud are risen against me, and the assemblies of violent men have sought after my soul; and have not set you before them.
But those that seek my soul, to destroy it, shall go into the lower parts of the earth.
Let them be ashamed and confounded that seek after my soul: 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 your 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? and what is my sin before your father, that he seeks my life?
Lord, they have killed your prophets, and dug down your 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, you know all their counsel against me to slay me: forgive not their iniquity, neither blot out their sin from your sight, but let them be overthrown before you; deal thus with them in the time of your anger.
For strangers are risen up against me, and oppressors seek after my soul: they have not set God before them. Selah.
They also that seek after my life lay snares for me: and they that seek my hurt speak mischievous things, and plan deceit all the day long.
2 Samuel 21:5
And they answered the king, The man that consumed us, and that devised against us that we should be destroyed from remaining in any of the territory of Israel,
2 Samuel 16:11
And David said to Abishai, and to all his servants, Behold, my son, who came forth of my own body, seeks my life: how much more now may this Benjamite do it? 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 soul to destroy it; let them be driven backward and put to shame that wish me evil.
And he said, Who made you a prince and a judge over us? do you intend to kill me, as you killed the Egyptian? And Moses feared, and said, Surely this thing is known.
Will you kill me, as you did the Egyptian yesterday?
1 Samuel 22:23
Abide you with me, fear not: for he that seeks my life seeks your life: but with me you shall be safe.
Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?
