Princes persecute me for no reason,
but my heart stands in awe of your words.

Psalm 119:161

We all have detractors, critics, who often go beyond the bounds of civility, when finding faults within us. These, I have come to understand, have problems with their own self-esteem and look to minimize others to make themselves look bigger, in their own eyes. Adonai is the only Model I want; His words provide a powerful guide for my behaviour, especially when confronted by unruly or uncivil critics.
