“They gaped upon me with their mouths, as a ravening and a roaring lion.”
King James Version (KJV)
22:12 Bulls - Wicked and violent, and potent enemies; for such are so called, #Ezek 39:18 Amos 4:1|. Of Bashan - As the cattle there bred were, and therefore fierce and furious.
22:14 Water - My spirits are spent and gone like water which once spilt can never be recovered; my very flesh is melted within me, and I am become as weak as water. Bones - I am as unable to help myself, and as full of torment, as if all my bones were disjointed. Wax - Melted, through fear and overwhelming grief.
22:15 Dried - I have in a manner no more moisture left in me, than is in a dry potsherd. Cleaveth - Through excessive thirst and drought. Death - Thy providence, delivering me into the power of mine enemies, and by thy terrors in my soul.
They gaped vpon me with their mouthes, as a rauening and a roaring Lyon.
