Deliver Me From My Enemies

Psalm 59:1-6
Deliver me from my enemies, O God; protect me from those who rise up against me.  Deliver me from evildoers and save me from bloodthirsty men. See how they lie in wait for me. Fierce men conspire against me for no offense or sin of mine, O LORD.  I have done no wrong, yet they are ready to attack me. Arise to help me; look on my plight! O LORD God Almighty, the God of Israel, rouse yourself to punish all the nations; show no mercy to wicked traitors. Selah They return at evening, snarling like dogs, and prowl about the city.  
On this day in this country we celebrate the life of a revolutionary. A man who gave his life for what he stood for. Equality for all people. The above passage was written by another revolutionary, who had been hunted down because he to was for the people and was to be the leader of a nation. We still fight today to make all men and women to be treated justly. It is a struggle that continues.
