Safety and Security

"A horse is prepared for the day of battle, but victory comes from the LORD." Psalm 21:31

Therefore I stationed some of the people behind the lowest points of the wall at the exposed places, posting them by families, with their swords, spears and bows. After I looked things over, I stood up and said to the nobles, the officials and the rest of the people, "Don't be afraid of them. Remember the Lord, who is great and awesome, and fight for your brothers, your sons and your daughters, your wives and your homes." When our enemies heard that we were aware of their plot and that God had frustrated it, we all returned to the wall, each to his own work.
Nehemiah 4:6, 11, 13-15

If a thief is found breaking in and is struck so that he dies, there shall be no bloodguilt for him
Exodus 22:2

Like a muddied spring or a polluted fountain
is a righteous man who gives way before the wicked.
Proverbs 25:26
