Better is a handful with rest than both the hands full with travail and vexation of spirit.
He has walled off my way and I shall not pass, and he has set darkness in my paths.
He frustrates the devices of the crafty, so that their hands cannot perform their enterprise.
1 Thessalonians 2:18
Therefore we would have come unto you, even I, Paul, once and again, but Satan hindered us.
I have seen all the works that are done under the sun; and, behold, all is vanity and vexation of spirit.
What is my strength that I should hope? What is my end that I should prolong my life?
so I am made to possess months of vanity, and wearisome nights are appointed to me.
My days are past, my thoughts were broken off, even the purposes of my heart.
And let us not be weary in well doing, for in due season we shall reap if we faint not.
that undoes the signs of the fortune tellers and makes the diviners mad; that turns the wise men backward and makes their wisdom fade away;
I do not reject the grace of God, for if righteousness comes by the law, then Christ is dead in vain.
1 Samuel 18:8
And Saul was very wroth, and the saying displeased him, and he said, They have ascribed unto David ten thousands, and to me they have ascribed but thousands; and what can he have more but the kingdom?
And hast not suffered me to kiss my sons and my daughters? Thou hast now done foolishly in so doing.
Resh The wicked shall see it and be furious; Schin he shall gnash with his teeth and waste away: Tau The desire of the wicked shall perish.
