Therefore
Genesis 32:13-20
13
He spent the night there and took part of what he had brought with him as a gift for his brother Esau:
14
200 female goats, 20 male goats, 200 ewes, 20 rams,
15
30 milk camels with their young, 40 cows, 10 bulls, 20 female donkeys, and 10 male donkeys.
16
He entrusted them to his slaves as separate herds and said to them, "Go on ahead of me, and leave some distance between the herds."
17
And he told the first one: "When my brother Esau meets you and asks, 'Who do you belong to? Where are you going? And whose [animals] are these ahead of you?'
18
then tell him, 'They belong to your servant Jacob. They are a gift sent to my lord Esau. And look, he is behind us.'"
19
He also told the second one, the third, and everyone who was walking behind the animals, "Say the same thing to Esau when you find him.
20
You are to also say, 'Look, your servant Jacob is right behind us.' " For he thought, "I want to appease Esau with the gift that is going ahead of me. After that, I can face him, and perhaps he will forgive me."
2 Chronicles 32:2-8
2
Hezekiah saw that Sennacherib had come and that he planned war on Jerusalem,
3
so he consulted with his officials and his warriors about stopping up the waters of the springs that were outside the city, and they helped him.
4
Many people gathered and stopped up all the springs and the stream that flowed through the land; they said, "Why should the kings of Assyria come and find plenty of water?"
5
Then Hezekiah strengthened his position by rebuilding the entire broken-down wall and heightening the towers and the other outside wall. He repaired the supporting terraces of the city of David, and made an abundance of weapons and shields.
6
He set military commanders over the people and gathered the people in the square of the city gate. Then he encouraged them, saying,
7
"Be strong and courageous! Don't be afraid or discouraged before the king of Assyria or before all the multitude with him, for there are more with us than with him.
8
He has only human strength,but we have the LORD our God to help us and to fight our battles." So the people relied on the words of King Hezekiah of Judah.
Psalm 112:5
Good will come to a man who lends generously and conducts his business fairly.
Matthew 10:16
"Look, I'm sending you out like sheep among wolves. Therefore be as shrewd as serpents and as harmless as doves.
1 Corinthians 14:20
Brothers, don't be childish in your thinking, but be infants in evil and adult in your thinking.

Song of Songs 3:7
It is Solomon's royal litter surrounded by 60 warriors from the mighty of Israel.
Song of Songs 3:8
All of them are skilled with swords and trained in warfare. Each has his sword at his side [to guard] against the terror of the night.
Ephesians 6:11-20
11
Put on the full armor of God so that you can stand against the tactics of the Devil.
12
For our battle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the world powers of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavens.
13
This is why you must take up the full armor of God, so that you may be able to resist in the evil day, and having prepared everything, to take your stand.
14
Stand, therefore, with truth like a belt around your waist, righteousness like armor on your chest,
15
and your feet sandaled with readiness for the gospel of peace.
16
In every situation take the shield of faith, and with it you will be able to extinguish the flaming arrows of the evil one.
17
Take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is God's word.
18
With every prayer and request, pray at all times in the Spirit, and stay alert in this, with all perseverance and intercession for all the saints.
19
Pray also for me, that the message may be given to me when I open my mouth to make known with boldness the mystery of the gospel.
20
For this I am an ambassador in chains. Pray that I might be bold enough in Him to speak as I should.
