“After whom is the king of Israel come out? after whom dost thou pursue? after a dead dog, after a flea” (1 Sam. 24:14).

Behold, the nations are as a drop of a bucket, and are counted as the small dust of the balance: behold, he taketh up the isles as a very little thing.” (Isa. 40:15).

“And they brought the young man alive, and were not a little comforted.” (Acts 20:12).

“I am a man which am a Jew of Tarsus, a city in Cilicia, a citizen of no mean city” (Acts 21:39).

Also see Genesis 18:27; Psalm 22:6; Acts 27:14; Romans 1:13.
