Songs from Hell


So the women sang as they danced, and said: “Saul has slain his thousands, And David his ten thousands.” (I Samuel 18:7 NKJV)
After the women sang Saul was very angry and frightened that he was going to lose the kingdom to David because they spoke highly of him.
Had they not sang in such way maybe David would still be able to keep serving Saul but as it is written : "So Saul eyed David from that day forward." (I Samuel 18:9 NKJV)
From that day David was persecuted and Saul tried to kill him at all costs.
In short, what I see is that we have to be careful with what we say, certainly they did not have the intention of causing problems to David but sometimes even though the intention is good, the words come out wrong and cause a lot of troubles.

God bless you.

Palavras

— Eu afirmo a vocês que, no Dia do Juízo, cada pessoa vai prestar contas de toda palavra inútil que falou. Porque as suas palavras vão servir para julgar se você é inocente ou culpado. (Mateus 12:36-37 NTLH)

Words


“Let me tell you something: Every one of these careless words is going to come back to haunt you. There will be a time of Reckoning. Words are powerful; take them seriously. Words can be your salvation. Words can also be your damnation.” (Matthew 12:34-37 MSG)

Something to think about

In the multitude of words sin is not lacking, But he who restrains his lips is wise. (Proverbs 10:19 NKJV)

Today's meditation

For at the window of my house I looked through my lattice, And saw among the simple, I perceived among the youths, A young man devoid of understanding, Passing along the street near her corner; And he took the path to her house In the twilight, in the evening, In the black and dark night. And there a woman met him, With the attire of a harlot, and a crafty heart. She was loud and rebellious, Her feet would not stay at home. At times she was outside, at times in the open square, Lurking at every corner. So she caught him and kissed him; With an impudent face she said to him: “ I have peace offerings with me; Today I have paid my vows. So I came out to meet you, Diligently to seek your face, And I have found you. I have spread my bed with tapestry, Colored coverings of Egyptian linen. I have perfumed my bed With myrrh, aloes, and cinnamon. Come, let us take our fill of love until morning; Let us delight ourselves with love. For my husband is not at home; He has gone on a long journey; He has taken a bag of money with him, And will come home on the appointed day.” With her enticing speech she caused him to yield, With her flattering lips she seduced him. Immediately he went after her, as an ox goes to the slaughter, Or as a fool to the correction of the stocks, Till an arrow struck his liver. As a bird hastens to the snare, He did not know it would cost his life. Now therefore, listen to me, my children; Pay attention to the words of my mouth: Do not let your heart turn aside to her ways, Do not stray into her paths; For she has cast down many wounded, And all who were slain by her were strong men. Her house is the way to hell, Descending to the chambers of death. (Proverbs 7:6-27 NKJV)
What else should we say?
Watch!
