(old Nebucadnezzar destroyed Jerusalem
and again it was destroyed by the Romans in 70AD
just as Jesus prophesied it would)...
(verses 8 & 9)
"When wilt Thou once, Lord, end this shame,
And cease Thine en'mies strong?
Shall they always blaspheme Thy name,
And rail on Thee so long?
Why dost Thou draw Thy hand aback,
And hide it in Thy lap?
O pluck it out, and be not slack,
To give Thy foes a rap!"
(An old metrical version formed from the original text.)
In this passage they are reminders of when
Pharaoh and his armies were drowned.
He said it, I believe it.
God is my King from of old.
He will slay my dragons.
I belong to His tribe.
