    "The wicked have drawn out the sword, and have bent their bow, to cast down the poor and needy, and to slay such as be of upright conversation. Their sword shall enter into their own heart, and their bows shall be broken." Love does no evil to his neighbor; love doesn't follow the multitudes to to evil; love is humble, and meek of spirit; love mourns, and hungers and thirsts after righteousness.
