'Prevail' in the Bible
He guards the steps of His faithful ones,but the wicked perish in darkness,for a man does not prevail by his own strength.
Saul said to him, “You are blessed, my son David. You will certainly do great things and will also prevail.” Then David went on his way, and Saul returned home.
“The Lord asked him, ‘How?’“He said, ‘I will go and become a lying spirit in the mouth of all his prophets.’ “Then He said, ‘You will certainly entice him and prevail. Go and do that.’
“So he said, ‘I will go and become a lying spirit in the mouth of all his prophets.’“Then He said, ‘You will entice him and also prevail. Go and do that.’
Rise up, Lord! Do not let man prevail;let the nations be judged in Your presence.
Though they intend to harm youand devise a wicked plan, they will not prevail.
Many plans are in a man’s heart,but the Lord’s decree will prevail.
No wisdom, no understanding, and no counselwill prevail against the Lord.
Do you not fear Me?This is the Lord’s declaration.Do you not tremble before Me,the One who set the sand as the boundary of the sea,an enduring barrier that it cannot cross?The waves surge, but they cannot prevail.They roar but cannot pass over it.
They bent their tongues like their bows;lies and not faithfulness prevail in the land,for they proceed from one evil to another,and they do not take Me into account.This is the Lord’s declaration.
If I say, “I won’t mention Himor speak any longer in His name,”His message becomes a fire burning in my heart,shut up in my bones.I become tired of holding it in,and I cannot prevail.
For I have heard the gossip of many people,“Terror is on every side!Report him; let’s report him!”Everyone I trusted watches for my fall.“Perhaps he will be deceivedso that we might prevail against himand take our vengeance on him.”
But the Lord is with me like a violent warrior.Therefore, my persecutors will stumble and not prevail.Since they have not succeeded, they will be utterly shamed,an everlasting humiliation that will never be forgotten.
Escape will fail the swift,the strong one will not prevail by his strength,and the brave will not save his life.
