Slings and Arrows

The Vision of Hell, by Gustave Doré

Shakespeare’s character, Hamlet, indicated that he experienced the arrows of affliction, but he did not know the source.

The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune,
Hamlet, Shakespeare

 

The Apostle Paul, in the New Testament, indicates the source of these arrows and darts.

Ephesians 6:16 Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.

 

Water quenches fire.

Ephesians 5:26 That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word,

Psalm 1:1 Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.

2 But his delight is in the law of the Lord; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.

3 And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.
