God, the proud have risen up against me. A company of violent men have sought after my soul, and they don't hold regard for you before them.
But those who seek my soul, to destroy it, shall go into the lower parts of the earth.

The wicked have waited for me, to destroy me. I will consider your statutes.

Let those who seek after my soul be disappointed and brought to dishonor. Let those who plot my ruin be turned back and confounded.
Let them be disappointed and confounded together who seek after my soul to destroy it. Let them be turned backward and brought to dishonor who delight in my hurt.
He said, "Who made you a prince and a judge over us? Do you plan to kill me, as you killed the Egyptian?" Moses was afraid, and said, "Surely this thing is known."
Do you want to kill me, as you killed the Egyptian yesterday?'
1 Samuel 22:23
Stay with me, don't be afraid; for he who seeks my life seeks your life. For with me you shall be in safeguard."
