Mose sings about Jacob, the Lord's people:
He kept him as the apple of his eye.
Like an eagle that stirs up its nest,
that flutters over its young,
spreading out its wings, catching them,
bearing them on its pinions.
Deuteronomy 32:10-11 (ESV)
As the mountains surround Jerusalem,
so the Lord surrounds his people,
from this time forth and forevermore.
Psalm 125:2 (ESV)
