Doeg was a faithful follower of Saul. Saul couldn't find David anywhere, and Saul said, “Who knows where David is?” Everybody kept their mouths closed because they knew that David was right and Saul was wrong. Everybody, that is, but Doeg. Doeg came to Saul and said, “I know where he is, and I know why he is there,” and he dressed up the story real good. Saul said, “All right, I have two jobs for you to do. One of them is go to the house of Ahimelech and kill Ahimelech, his wife and his children, all of his sons. Put them to the sword. Then go find David and kill him.” Doeg did exactly that. He went and killed the household of Ahimelech, then he sought out David. When the word came to David that Doeg was in the process of doing this, he wrote the Psalm which we have read in your hearing. He described Doeg as a man of mischief, a mighty man who devised mischief and whose tongue was like a razor, working deceitfully. He told Doeg that he couldn't continue on that way because he would come to a sad end. He would be plucked up out of the planting of God—out of the house of God—and he would be put to shame.

 P ERDITA Sir, the year growing ancient,
Not yet on summer's death, nor on the birth
Of trembling winter, the fairest flowers o' the season
Are our carnations and streak'd gillyvors,
Which some call nature's bastards: of that kind
Our rustic garden's barren; and I care not
To get slips of them.
P OLIXENES Wherefore, gentle maiden,
Do you neglect them?
P ERDITA For I have heard it said
There is an art which in their piedness shares
With great creating nature.
P OLIXENES Say there be;
Yet nature is made better by no mean
But nature makes that mean: so, over that art
Which you say adds to nature, is an art
That nature makes. You see, sweet maid, we marry
A gentler scion to the wildest stock,
And make conceive a bark of baser kind
By bud of nobler race: this is an art
Which does mend nature, change it rather, but
The art itself is nature.
P ERDITA So it is.
P OLIXENES Then make your garden rich in gillyvors, And do not call them bastards.
P ERDITA I'll not put
The dibble in earth to set one slip of them;
No more than were I painted I would wish
This youth should say 'twere well and only therefore
Desire to breed by me.

However, not even in his dreams would he think that the young emperor’s appearance would so completely contradict the image in his mind. What was even worse was that the Old Devil whom the entire sect thought was a pervert that only hung around at Happy Crimson was their ancestor, Mu Shaodi. This was almost like a dream.

omnivorous 1650s, from L. omnivorus "all-devouring," from omnis "all" (see omni-) + vorare "devour, swallow" (see voracious).

Fleeing Saul's pursuit is a likely setting for this Psalm of David as well. Notice Psalm 31:5, "Into thine hand I commit my spirit:" Jesus used these words from the cross regarding his death in Luke 23:46 (see notes) . Notice how David establishes the premise upon which he seeks relief from God in verse 3, "For thou art my rock and my fortress; therefore for thy name’s sake lead me, and guide me." David uses that ol' argument used by Moses every time God was inclined to destroy Israel for their rebellion, "How is it going to look, God, if your people don't succeed?". So David here says, "Everyone knows my faith in God; how's it going to look if you don't deliver me?" Hey! Let's face it; the quality of one's life changes when the head of state has a bounty out on your head. Feel David's pain as he says in verse 11, "I was a reproach among all mine enemies, but especially among my neighbours, and a fear to mine acquaintance: they that did see me without fled from me." After Saul slaughtered the priest's entire family (except for one escapee) because of their assistance to David ( I Samuel 22, see notes ), it's obvious that friendship with David has its risks. Even the king's own son has to play "dodge the javelin" because of the kindness he demonstrated to David ( I Samuel 20, see notes ).

Augustine Gonzales, on the Performance
One of my favorite pieces written by Rich, and David did a wonderful job with this arrangement. You really get a sense of the story arch from the original film and score. Special attention should be given in the opening 5/8 to not add accents as if playing in compound (3/8+2/8) meter.

NAVAN, an incorporated market and post-town (formerly a parliamentary borough), and a parish, in the barony of Lower Navan, county of Meath and province of Leinster, 7 miles from Trim, and 23 from Dublin, on the  road to Enniskillen; containing 5292 inhabitants, of which number, 4416 are in the town.  It is one of the first boroughs established by the English in the palatinate of Meath, and appears to have arisen under the patronage of the family of the Nangles, barons of Navan, who, towards the close of the 12th century, founded here an abbey for Canons Regular of the order of St. Augustine.  The town is situated in the centre of the county, and at the junction of the rivers Blackwater and Boyne; it consists of three principal streets, from which several smaller branch of in various directions, and contains about 850 houses, many of which are well built; altogether it has a neat, cheerful, and thriving appearance. The cavalry barracks, on the site of the ancient abbey are adapted for 4 officers and 52 non-commissioned officers and privates, with stabling for 50 horses.  The chief trade is in provisions, which is extensively carried on with Drogheda, and seems to have been consequent on the opening of the Boyne navigation from that part to Navan, a line of 15 miles in extent; and its further extension inland, which has been attempted but not yet carried into effect would contribute greatly to its increase and to the general prosperity of the neighbourhood. There is also a considerable retail trade with the surrounding districts.  In the immediate vicinity of the town, and closely connected with its trade, though locally within the limits of the adjoining parish of Athlumney, are flax-mills on the river Boyne, affording regular employment, on the average, to about 260 persons, and in the same parish, but close to the bridge of Navan, are some very extensive flour-mills, the property of Mr. Delany. Of these mills, one has five pairs of stones used for grinding wheat only; and the other, called the New Mill, which has been recently erected and fitted up with the most improved machinery, has ten pairs of stones, of which six are used in grinding wheat, and four for oats; attached to these mills is a steam-engine of 30-horse power.  There are also some smaller mills in the town, chiefly for oatmeal and a paper-mill upon a small scale, chiefly for the coarser sorts of paper. The distillery belonging to Mr. James Morgan is capable of producing 30,000 gallons of whiskey annually; and on the river Blackwater, and close to the town, was formerly a very extensive distillery, with a mill and corn stores, employing a large number of persons; but the establishment has been for some time discontinued, and the buildings are fast going to decay.  The manufacture of sacking, of which this place is the principal seat, is extensively carried on: it is made of tow brought from the North of Ireland, and in the town are from 200 to 300 looms in constant operation, each producing annually about 40 pieces of 60 yards in length. The market, which is the best attended in the county, is on Wednesday, and is abundantly supplied with corn, large numbers of bacon-hogs and porkers, and-with coarse linen, yarn, frieze, and country merchandise.  In the R. C. divisions the parish is the head of a union or district, comprising also the parishes of Donaghmore, Ardsallagh, and Bective: the chapel is a handsome Grecian edifice, now in course of erection upon an extensive scale; there is also a chapel at Bective.  Near the R. C. chapel is the convent of the Ladies of Loretto, a handsome edifice, attached to which are two schoolrooms, one in connection with the National Board, in which are 200 girls, who are gratuitously instructed by the sisters of the convent; and the other a private seminary for young ladies. The Navan endowed school was founded by Alderman Preston, of Dublin. Published by: Local Ireland

The county was the centre of prehistoric Ireland and the place from which the ancient roads of Ireland radiated. In the Boyne Valley lie the celebrated megalithic burial grounds at Newgrange, Knowth and Dowth, some of the oldest neolithic structures in Europe, predating the Egyptian Pyramids and Stonehenge. Newgrange (c. 3200BC) could lay claim to being possibly the oldest astronomically aligned Stone Age structure in the world. It was discovered during the 17th century, along with heavily decorated curb stones. An active solstice site, there is a waiting list of several years to get in to Newgrange to see the sun's rays penetrate the tomb at dawn on the day of winter solstice. New evidence has been found indicating that Knowth - a neolithic cemetery of up to 20 passage tombs, once the royal residence of the kings of Breaga - like Newgrange, could also have an astronomical function. Other important archaeological finds in the county include the Tara Brooch, found in Bettystown.  Early Christian: The county is referred to as Royal Meath, as it was once home to the kings of pagan and early Christian Ireland at Tara.  Arguably the most important early Christian artifact - The Book of Kells - came from Kells in Meath.
English: The Boyne Valley has been significant in most eras in Irish history from prehistory to the Battle of the Boyne in 1690, when King James II was vanquished by King William III for the crown of England.
The British army defeated Irish rebels during the 1798 rebellion at Tara, and Daniel O'Connell held a 'monster' rally here in 1843, leading an estimated one million people to protest against the Act of Union Areas of historical interest: Brú na Bóinne Visitors' Centre (starting point for the visits to the megalithic tombs at Newgrange & Knowth), Hill of Tara (seat of the ancient high kings of Ireland), St. John's/Trim Castle (contains the largest castle fortifications in Ireland and was the location of the film Braveheart), Loughcrew (a series of hills with passage graves),
