“I hear many whispering, ‘Terror on every side! Report him! Let’s report him!’ All my friends are waiting for me to slip, saying, ‘Perhaps he’ll be deceived; then we’ll prevail over him and take our revenge on him.’ But the LORD is with me like a mighty warrior; so my persecutors will stumble and not prevail. They’ll fail and be thoroughly disgraced; their dishonor will never be forgotten.” Jer.20:10-11
