… “so I prayed to the LORD, and the LORD answered me and set me free. The LORD is for me, so I will have no fear. What can mere people do to me? Yes, the LORD is for me; he will help me. I will look in triumph at those who hate me. It is better to take refuge in the LORD than to trust in people.” (Psalm 118:5-8 NLT)

‘Mene, Mene, Tekel, Upharsin’

“I will test you with the measuring line of justice and the plumb line of righteousness. Since your refuge is made of lies, a hailstorm will knock it down. Since it is made of deception, a flood will sweep it away. • So now God will have to speak to his people through foreign oppressors who speak a strange language!” (Isaiah 28:17,11 NLT)
