Bishop Eddie Long invokes scripture in remarks on lawsuits

Speaking to his congregation Sunday at New Birth Missionary Baptist Church, Bishop Eddie Long likened his fight against sex allegations to David and Goliath, saying, "I have five rocks, and I haven't thrown one yet."

Here's a look other scriptural references he made, all from King James Bible:

Psalm 34:19: “Many are the afflictions of the righteous; but Lord delivereth him out of them all.”

Psalms 23:4-6: "Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; they rod and they staff comfort me. Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies; my cup runneth over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life; and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.

Matthew 6:33: "But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things will be added unto you."

Isaiah 43:2: "When thou passeth through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee. When thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee. For I am the Lord thy God, the Holy One of Israel, thy Saviour."
