Col 2 11-12

11 In him also you were circumcised with a circumcision made without hands, by putting off the body of the flesh, by the circumcision of Christ, 12 having been buried with him in baptism, in which you were also raised with him through faith in the powerful working of God, who raised him from the dead.

Psalm 55 12-23

For it is not an enemy who taunts me—

    then I could bear it;

it is not an adversary who deals insolently with me—

    then I could hide from him.


But it is you, a man, my equal,

    my companion, my familiar friend.


We used to take sweet counsel together;

    within God’s house we walked in the throng.


Let death steal over them;

    let them go down to Sheol alive;

    for evil is in their dwelling place and in their heart.


But I call to God,

    and the Lord will save me.


Evening and morning and at noon

    I utter my complaint and moan,

    and he hears my voice.


He redeems my soul in safety

    from the battle that I wage,

    for many are arrayed against me.


God will give ear and humble them,

    he who is enthroned from of old, Selah

because they do not change

    and do not fear God.


My companion[b] stretched out his hand against his friends;

    he violated his covenant.


His speech was smooth as butter,

    yet war was in his heart;

his words were softer than oil,

    yet they were drawn swords.


Cast your burden on the Lord,

    and he will sustain you;

he will never permit

    the righteous to be moved.


But you, O God, will cast them down

    into the pit of destruction;

men of blood and treachery

    shall not live out half their days.

But I will trust in you.
