Everyone who sees me mocks me; they sneer and shake their heads:
They open their mouths wide against me and say, "Aha, aha! We saw it!"
They open their mouths against me and strike my cheeks with contempt; they join themselves together against me.
All your enemies open their mouths against you. They hiss and gnash [their] teeth, saying, "We have swallowed [her] up. This is the day we have waited for! We have lived to see [it]."
All our enemies open their mouths against us.
Then the chief priests and the elders of the people assembled in the palace of the high priest, who was called Caiaphas,
and they conspired to arrest Jesus in a treacherous way and kill Him.
The chief priests and the whole Sanhedrin were looking for false testimony against Jesus so they could put Him to death.
But they could not find any, even though many false witnesses came forward. Finally, two who came forward
stated, "This man said, 'I can demolish God's sanctuary and rebuild it in three days.'"
The high priest then stood up and said to Him, "Don't You have an answer to what these men are testifying against You?"
But Jesus kept silent. Then the high priest said to Him, "By the living God I place You under oath: tell us if You are the Messiah, the Son of God!"
"You have said it," Jesus told him. "But I tell you, in the future you will see the Son of Man seated at the right hand of the Power and coming on the clouds of heaven."

They are like a lion eager to tear, like a young lion lurking in ambush.
Lord, how long will You look on? Rescue my life from their ravages, my very life from the young lions.
"Her officials within her are like wolves tearing [their] prey, shedding blood, and destroying lives in order to get unjust gain.
Her prophets plaster with whitewash for them by seeing false visions and lying divinations, and they say: This is what the Lord God says, when the LORD has not spoken.
Be sober! Be on the alert! Your adversary the Devil is prowling around like a roaring lion, looking for anyone he can devour.
