The violence of the wicked will drag them away, Because they refuse to act with justice.
"May a slanderer not be established in the earth; May evil hunt the violent man speedily."
His mischief will return upon his own head, And his violence will descend upon his own pate.
"Violence will not be heard again in your land, Nor devastation or destruction within your borders; But you will call your walls salvation, and your gates praise.
"You will be hidden from the scourge of the tongue, And you will not be afraid of violence when it comes.
Although there is no violence in my hands, And my prayer is pure.
