8 Keep me as the apple of your eye;
hide me in the shadow of your wings
9 from the wicked who are out to destroy me,
from my mortal enemies who surround me.Psalm 17:8-9
13 Arise, O LORD, confront them! Bring them to their knees; deliver me from the wicked by Your sword,Psalm 17:13-14
14 from such men, O LORD, by Your hand, from men of the world whose portion is in this life. You fill their bellies with Your treasure and satisfy their sons; so they leave their abundance to their children.
Wisdom is Precious
My child, don’t lose sight of common sense and discernment. Hang on to them, for they will refresh your soul.Proverbs 3:21-22
They are like jewels on a necklace.
They keep you safe on your way, and your feet will not stumble. You can go to bed without fear; you will lie down and sleep soundly. You need not be afraid of sudden disaster or the destruction that comes upon the wicked, for the Lord is your security. He will keep your foot from being caught in a trap.Proverbs 3:23-26
