1st Chronicles 21:13Wrench

BACK NEXT
So [king] David answers Gad {Troop}, “I'm [caught] in the fire-trap [I set].
But let me fall into the fist of YHVH.
His [heart] is infinite in mercy.
Just don't don't let me fall into the fist[s] of man.”

Note: When you identify yourself as a card-carrying, numbered subject of a beast-nation, instead of a humble citizen of the kingdom of heaven, you fall from the loving hand of your Creator into the fists of evil men.
