2 Samuel 24:17, “And David spake unto the LORD when he saw the angel that smote the people, and said, Lo, I have sinned, and I have done wickedly: but these sheep, what have they done? let thine hand, I pray thee, be against me, and against my father's house.”

1 Chronicles 21:15, “And God sent an angel unto Jerusalem to destroy it: and as he was destroying, the LORD beheld, and he repented him of the evil, and said to the angel that destroyed, It is enough, stay now thine hand. And the angel of the LORD stood by the threshingfloor of Ornan the Jebusite.”

2 Chronicles 32:21, “And the LORD sent an angel, which cut off all the mighty men of valour, and the leaders and captains in the camp of the king of Assyria.

Psalms 35:27 “which hath pleasure in the prosperity of his servant” - Comments The word “servant” is used because God does not prosper all of His children; for some are too lazy to walk in the laws of prosperity that God has designed for us.

Psalms 35:28 And my tongue shall speak of thy righteousness and of thy praise all the day long.
