but endure they must. Take strength in the words of David "Do not fret because of evil men or be envious of those who do wrong".The moral standard to which Israel aspires is an example to humanity. "He has prepared his deadly weapons; he makes ready his flaming arrows. Whoever is pregnant with evil conceives trouble and gives birth to disillusionment. Whoever digs a hole and scoops it out falls into the pit they have made. The nations have fallen into the pit they have dug; their feet are caught in the net they have hidden. The trouble they cause recoils on them; their violence comes down on their own heads" "They repay evil for good","they devise false accusations","they slander without cease","they sit in the secret places from which they slay the innocent and watch for the helpless." But why do the "nations conspire and plot" ? Are they "gloating enemies without cause" ? "They hate Israel wrongfully" because it "follows a thing that is good". What is that thing? Respect for all life. The nations say “Let us break their chains and throw off their shackles” and thus break their faith in justice, destroy their hope in better, more peaceful world. They desire to bring Israel to the level of its ruthless enemies. Don't fall into the "pit they have dug for you" for your victory is being able to protect all life and their victory is in threatening yours. Your sacrifice is gift to all of humanity.
