Do Not Touch My Anointed One
The Assyrians boasted how they had destroyed cedar and cypress trees of Lebanon, but the Lord declared that He was the one who allowed it because He planned it a long time ago to fulfill His purpose.
Likewise, the enemy cannot harm you if the Lord does not permit it.
By your messengers, you have reproached the Lord,
And said: “By the multitude of my chariots
I have come up to the height of the mountains,
To the limits of Lebanon;
I will cut down its tall cedars
And its choice cypress trees;
I will enter the extremity of its borders,
To its fruitful forest.
I have dug and drunk strange water,
And with the soles of my feet I have dried up
All the brooks of defense.”
‘Did you not hear long ago
How I made it,
From ancient times that I formed it?
Now I have brought it to pass,
That you should be
For crushing fortified cities into heaps of ruins. (2 Kings 19:23-25)
