Holman Bible Dictionary
The psalmists asked for God's help against wicked persons who sought to ambush them (Psalm 10:8; Psalm 59:3; Psalm 64:4; compare Proverbs 1:11 ,Proverbs 1:11,1:18 ). Jeremiah accused his people of spiritual ambush against one another (Jeremiah 9:8 ). He also called for ambushes to defeat Babylon (Jeremiah 51:12 ). The people of Jerusalem lamented that the enemy had used ambushes to defeat and destroy the city and nation (Lamentations 4:19 ). Paul's nephew saved him from Jewish plans to ambush him as the Roman authorities transferred him from Jerusalem to Caehysarea (Acts 23:12-33; compare Acts 25:3 ).
