The Final Pathetic Bleatings of the Forum
Oh wonderous Forum, I have a question.
And what one nation in the earth is like thy people, even
like Israel, whom God went to redeem for a people to

thou redeemedst to thee from Egypt, from the nations and
their gods? [2 Samuel 7:23]

I prefer II Kings 6:28-29:And the king said unto her, What aileth thee? And she answered, This woman said unto me, Give thy son, that we may eat him to day, and we will eat my son to morrow. So we boiled my son, and did eat him: and I said unto her on the next day, Give thy son, that we may eat him: and she hath hid her son.

Song of Solomon 7:9And the roof of thy mouth like the best wine for my beloved, that goeth [down] sweetly, causing the lips of those that are asleep to speak.
