Thanks for the reference - so apt isn't it.
Quite apt. I also am reminded of a psalm David sang, when he was running from Saul, the king, the anointed of Jehovah. It is quite apt in this
situation. Those of Psalm 55. No doubt they apply to you:
(Psalm 55:1-23) . . .Listen to my prayer, O God, And do not ignore my request for mercy. 2 Do pay attention to me and answer me. My concern
makes me restless, And I am distraught 3 Because of what the enemy is saying And the pressure from the wicked one. For they heap trouble upon me,
And in anger they harbor animosity against me. 4 My heart is in anguish within me, And the terrors of death overwhelm me. 5 Fear and trembling
come upon me, And shuddering grips me. 6 I keep saying: “If only I had wings like a dove! I would fly away and reside in safety. 7 Look! I
would flee far away. I would lodge in the wilderness. (Selah) 8 I would hurry to a place of shelter Away from the raging wind, away from the
storm.” 9 Confuse them, O Jehovah, and frustrate their plans, For I have seen violence and conflict in the city. 10 Day and night they walk
around on its walls; Within it are malice and trouble. 11 Ruin is in its midst; Oppression and deception never depart from its public square.
12 For it is not an enemy who taunts me; Otherwise I could put up with it. It is not a foe who has risen up against me; Otherwise I could conceal
myself from him. 13 But it is you, a man like me, My own companion whom I know well. 14 We used to enjoy a warm friendship together; Into the
house of God we used to walk along with the multitude. 15 May destruction overtake them! Let them go down alive into the Grave; For evil resides
among them and within them. 16 As for me, I will call out to God, And Jehovah will save me. 17 Evening and morning and noontime, I am troubled and
I groan, And he hears my voice. 18 He will rescue me and give me peace from those fighting against me, For multitudes come against me. 19 God will
hear and respond to them, The one who sits enthroned from of old. (Selah) They will refuse to change, Those who have not feared God. 20 He attacked
those at peace with him; He violated his covenant. 21 His words are smoother than butter, But conflict is in his heart. His words are softer than
oil, But they are drawn swords. 22 Throw your burden on Jehovah, And he will sustain you. Never will he allow the righteous one to fall. 23 But
you, O God, will bring them down to the deepest pit. Those bloodguilty and deceitful men will not live out half their days. But as for me, I will
trust in you.
