Epikus- how the mighty have fallen (2018 epic dark gothic
Following the deaths of Saul and Jonathan, David cried out for silence in the streets and for a curse to fall on the mountain where Israel’s mighty had perished. Despite the fact that David’s lament was personal, he led the nation of Israel in mourning the nation’s tragedy. His sorrowful grief, as Alistair Begg describes, was a biblical reaction to death. Even when we look forward to the return of Christ, who alone vanquished death, we show a watching world that death is still the last great enemy as we take time to mourn.
“‘On your high places, O Israel, your honor has been slain!
What has happened to the Mighty?
Tell it no one in Gath, no one in Ashkelon’s streets, lest the daughters of the Philistines rejoice and the daughters of the uncircumcised rejoice.
We humble ourselves before you, our good God, and pray that the Holy Spirit light the printed page for us. Open our minds so that we can comprehend in our hearts and be filled with the wonder of your grace. Since we are requesting it in Jesus’ name. Amen to that.
“how the mighty have fallen”
Have you ever heard or said, “How the Mighty Have Fallen”? It’s usually a demeaning remark. If you’re unfamiliar with its popular use, it’s a jovial or mocking way of remarking that someone is doing something he or she used to find demeaning .
This idiom is often used to denote a loss of prestige, a moral failing, or a day of reckoning. If an individual acts arrogant in his or her elevated status, onlookers are more likely to react negatively. I believe that if anyone makes an idol out of something that is otherwise fine, they will experience a “mighty fall.”
However, the root of the phrase “how the mighty have fallen” has a very different meaning. When his king, Saul, and his dearest friend, Saul’s son, Jonathan, were killed in battle, David wrote it in verse to sing their praises.
Saul had been envious of David and disobedient to God, which was ironic. Despite David and Jonathan’s best attempts to reassure him of David’s allegiance, he went on the hunt and tried to kill him. David’s response was one of honor and dignity, which transcended his circumstances. His use of the word was diametrically opposed to how it is used today.
Alesana – oh, how the mighty have fallen (official lyric
This day’s official (and full) name is “Day of Remembrance for Israel’s Fallen Soldiers and Terrorist Victims.” The official start of the day is indicated by a one-minute siren heard throughout the world.
It is tradition to visit military cemeteries and participate in private remembrance ceremonies on this day. This is one of the most popular days in the Israeli calendar since almost everybody in Israel served in the army.
The date for this very sad day was chosen to coincide with Israel Independence Day, in order to remind us of the high price that was paid for the state of Israel’s independence.
“May God remember the souls of His brave children: the fighters of the Israel Defense Forces who died in Israel’s battles, in defensive and security acts, and while carrying out their duties, as well as the souls of the underground fighters and brigades who fought in the national struggle – all those who gave their lives for the sanctification of God’s Name. They brought about the rebirth of the nation and state, as well as the regeneration of God’s land and city, with the aid of God, the Lord of Israel’s campaigns. They were swifter than eagles and stronger than lions as they volunteered to help the nation, and their pure blood soaked our holy land.
