Quotes / Bolt of Divine Retribution

He shrouded himself in darkness, veiling his approach with dense rain clouds.
A great brightness shone before him, and bolts of lightning blazed forth.
— From David's song of praise, 2 Samuel

There was no reason to pray. This was already an act of the gods.

(Throw me down) It's been raining
(Throw me down) And now I will pay
(Throw me down) Woe is come to me
(Throw me down) I am the lightning rod
(Throw me down) I am waiting
(Throw me down) On a mountaintop
(Throw me down) Oh, above me
(Throw me down) He will strike me
The Offspring, "Lightning Rod"
