Because of You we are slain all day long; we are counted as sheep to be slaughtered.
As when one plows and breaks up the soil, [turning up rocks], so our bones have been scattered at the mouth of Sheol.
They will ban you from the synagogues. In fact, a time is coming when anyone who kills you will think he is offering service to God.
Why are we in danger every hour?
For we who live are always given over to death because of Jesus, so that Jesus' life may also be revealed in our mortal flesh.
He was oppressed and afflicted, yet He did not open His mouth. Like a lamb led to the slaughter and like a sheep silent before her shearers, He did not open His mouth.
for I was like a docile lamb led to slaughter. I didn't know that they had devised plots against me: "Let's destroy the tree with its fruit; let's cut him off from the land of the living so that his name will no longer be remembered."
As for You, You know me, LORD; You see me. You test whether my heart is with You. Drag the wicked away like sheep to slaughter, and set them apart for the day of killing.
I will bring them down like lambs to the slaughter, like rams together with male goats.
Now the Scripture passage he was reading was this: He was led like a sheep to the slaughter, and as a lamb is silent before its shearer, so He does not open His mouth.
