Death and life are in the power of the tongue.Shoot, rightly dividing the Word of Truth: It is the arrow of the Lord’s deliverance. God has bent his bow and made it ready. He ordains his arrows against the persecutors, who whet their tongue like a sword, andbend their bows to shoot their arrows, that are bitter words:But God shall shoot at them with an arrow, suddenly shall they be wounded.
Make bright the arrows and gather the shield of faith: Because it is the vengeance of the Lord, the vengeance of His temple. Do you not know that you are the temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwells in you? If any man destroys the temple of God, God will destroy him, for the temple of God is holy, and that is what you are.
For I would not wish you to be ignorant of this Mystery: As it was written,there came out of Sion the Deliverer, to turn us away from ungodliness. This is the Lord’s Covenant: He took away our sins, for the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God for the pulling down of strongholds; casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ. No man can enter a strong man's house, and spoil his goods, except he will first bind the strong man. Thus, says the Lord: If you continue in My Word, you shall know the Truth, and the Truth shall make you free; forChrist will first bind the strong man, and then He will spoil his house. God sent His Word and healed them and delivered them from their destruction.

For this is a people robbed andspoiled:They are all of them snared in holes, and they arehidden in prison houses. They are a prey, and none delivers; they are a spoil, and none says: Restore. Theydid not keep not the commandments of the Lord their God but walked in the statutes which they made themselves, making the Word of God of no effect through tradition. And the Lord afflicted them, and delivered them into the hand of spoilers, until He had cast them out of His sight.
Why don’t you repair the breaches of the house?Deliver for the breaches of the house. Since the days of our fathers have we been in a great trespass unto this day; and for our iniquities have we been delivered to the sword, to captivity, and to a spoil. God has delivered me to the ungodly and turned me over into the hands of the wicked. I was at ease, but He has broken me and set me up for His mark.He breaks me with breach upon breach, he runs upon me like a giant. A mighty man is not delivered by much strength.
What man is he that lives, and shall not see death? Shall he deliver his soul from the hand of the grave? Their silver and their gold shall not be able to deliver them in the Day of Wrath of the Lord: They shall not satisfy their souls, neither fill their bowels, because it is the stumbling block of their iniquity. Because there is Wrath: Beware He takes you away with Hisstroke, then a great ransom cannot deliver you.Will He esteem your riches? Do not desire the night, when people are cut off in their place.It is reported that there is fornication among you: Deliver such a one to Satan for the destruction of the flesh, that the spirit may be saved in the Day of the Lord Jesus.
Then says the Lord, when you pray:Our Father who are in Heaven, forgive us our debts as we forgive our debtors; and do not lead us into temptation but deliver us from Evil. You are a wicked servant forI forgave you all that debt, because you desired it; should you not also have had compassion on your fellow servant, even as I had pity on you? And the Lord was full of wrath, and delivered the wicked servant to the tormentors, until he should pay all that was due to Him. Likewise, shall My Heavenly Father do also to you, if you from your hearts, do not forgive everyone their trespasses.
Therefore, the Wrath of the Lord was upon them and He has delivered them to trouble, to astonishment, and to hissing.

Deliver my soul from the sword, from the power of the dog: All my bones shall say, Lord, who is like you,who delivers the poor and the needy from him that spoils him?
Draw close to my soul and redeem it: Deliver me because of my enemies. Deliver us and purge away our sins!

He that trusts in his own heart is a fool:But who walks wisely, he shall be delivered. It shall be for a sign and for a witness unto the Lord of armies of Heaven: For they shall cry to the Lord because of the oppressors, and He shall send them a Savior and He shall deliver them.
Thus, says the Lord: If you hold your peace at this time, then shall there arise deliverance. For wrath kills the foolish man, and envy slays the silly one. Behold, happy is the man whom God corrects: Therefore, do notdespise the chastening of the Almighty: For He makes sore, and binds up;He wounds, andHis hands make whole. He shall deliver you; in famine He shall redeem you from death, and in war from the power of the sword.

Thus, says the Lord: Do not be afraid nor dismayed; forthe battle is not yours, but God's. You shall not need to fight in this battle: Stand still and see the salvation of the Lord, for the Lord will be with you.And the Lord said: Tomorrow about this time will I deliver them up all slain.
