GREEDY LION FOR ITS PREY—KEEP SILENT
From the wicked that oppress me, from my deadly enemies, who compass me about. They have now compassed us in our steps: they have set their eyes bowing down to the earth; Like as a LION 女 THAT IS GREEDY OF HIS PREY, and as it were a young lion lurking in secret places. Arise, O LORD, DISAPPOINT HIM, CAST HIM DOWN: deliver my soul from the wicked, which is thy sword:
For a nation is come up upon my land, strong, and without number, whose teeth are the teeth of a lion, and he hath the cheek teeth of a great lion. He hath laid my vine waste, and barked my fig tree: he hath made it clean bare, and cast it away; the branches thereof are made white. Lament like a virgin girded with sackcloth for the husband of her youth.
…, I have a secret errand unto thee, O king: who said, Keep silence. ….Judges:3:19 In a dream, in a vision of the night, when deep sleep falleth upon men, in slumberings upon the bed; Then he openeth the ears of men, and sealeth their instruction,Job:33:15-16
The vision of Obadiah. Thus saith the Lord GOD concerning Edom; We have heard a rumour from the LORD, and an ambassador is sent among the heathen, Arise ye, and let us rise up against her in battle.Obadiah:1:1
