Animal Farm | Allegory – Satire – Fable



 Animal Farm By George Orwell


All animals are equal, but some are more equal than others.” Allegory – Satire – Fable

1. Animal Farm By George Orwell

2. George Orwell British Author & Journalist

  • 1903-1950
  • Born in India
  • At that time India was a part of the British Empire, and Blair’s father, Richard, held a post as an agent in the Opium Department of the Indian Civil Service.
  • The Blair family was not very wealthy – Orwell later described them ironically as “lower-upper-middle class”. They owned no property, had no extensive investments; they were like many middle-class English families of the time, totally dependent on the British Empire for their livelihood and prospects.
  • Noted as a novelist and critic, as well as a political and cultural commentator
  • One of the most widely admired English-language essayists of the 20th century
  • Best known for two novels critical of totalitarianism in general, and Stalinism in particular:
  • Animal Farm
  • Nineteen Eighty-Four

“ Liberty is telling people what they do not want to hear.”

3. 1984

The novel, published in 1949, takes place in 1984 and presents an imaginary future where a totalitarian state controls every aspect of life, even people’s thoughts. The state is called Oceania and is ruled by a group known as the Party; its leader and dictator is Big Brother.

4. George Orwell and His Beliefs

  • Orwell was a person who had a reputation for standing apart and even making a virtue of his detachment.
  • This “outsider” position often led him to oppose the crowd.
  • Orwell’s beliefs about politics were affected by his experiences fighting in the Spanish Civil War.
  • He viewed socialists, communists, and fascists as repressive and self-serving.
  • He was skeptical of governments and their willingness to forsake ideas in favor of power.
  • Interesting Fact:
  • George Orwell’s real name was Eric Blair.

5. Why Animals?

In explaining how he came to write Animal Farm , Orwell says he once saw a little boy whipping a horse and later he wrote,

“ It struck me that if only such animals became aware of their strength we should have no power over them, and that men exploit animals in much the same way as the rich exploit the [worker].”

6. George Orwell in India

  • He was born in India and spent his early years there since his father held a post there.
  • He was a lonely boy who liked to make up stories and talk with imaginary companions.
  • As an adult, he worked for the Imperial Police in British occupied India.

7. What is Animal Farm?

A masterpiece of political satire, Animal Farm is a tale of oppressed individuals who long for freedom but ultimately are corrupted by assuming the very power that had originally oppressed them.

The story traces the deplorable conditions of mistreated animals who can speak and who exhibit many human characteristics. After extreme negligence by their owner, the animals revolt and expel Mr. Jones and his wife from the farm.

The tale of the society the animals form into a totalitarian regime is generally viewed as Orwell’s critique of the communist system in the former Soviet Union.

Interesting Fact: Orwell initially struggled to find a publisher for Animal Farm

8. Significance Today

But why – now that Soviet Communism has fallen and the Cold War is over –does Animal Farm deserve our attention? The answer lies in the power of allegory. Allegorical fables, because they require us to make comparisons and connections, can be meaningful to any reader in any historical period. The story of Animal Farm will always have lessons to teach us about the ways that people abuse power and manipulate others.

Orwell’s chilling story of the betrayal of idealism through tyranny and corruption is as fresh and relevant today as when it was first published in 1945.

9. Children’s Book? – No!

After Animal Farm was published in 1945, George Orwell discovered with horror that booksellers were placing his novel on children’s shelves. According to his housekeeper, he began traveling from bookstore to bookstore requesting that the book be shelved with adult works. This dual identity — as children’s story and adult satire — has stayed with Orwell’s novel for more than fifty years.

10. The Fable

The fable is one of the oldest literary forms – much, much older than the novel or the short story. A fable is usually short, written in either verse or prose, and conveys a clear moral or message. The earliest fables still preserved date back to 6th Century Greece B.C.E. The author of these fables, Aesop, used animal characters to stand for human “types.” For example, a fox character might embody the human characteristics of cunning and cleverness. Though Aesop’s animal fables were ostensibly about animals, they were really instructional tales about human emotions and human behavior.

11. Animal Fables

The most popular animal fables of the 20th Century are the Just So Stories (1902) written by Rudyard Kipling. Kipling’s fables were adapted by Disney in the movie The Jungle Book. Orwell admired Kipling and the Just So Stories would seem to have influenced the form of Animal Farm . Orwell took the short animal fable and expanded it to the length of a short novel in the form of an allegory .

12. Allegory

Most fables have two levels of meaning. On the surface, the fable is about animals. But on a second level, the animals stand for types of people or ideas. The way the animals interact and the way the plot unfolds says something about the nature of people or the value of ideas. Any type of fiction that has multiple levels of meaning in this way is called an allegory .

13. Allegory (cont’d)

Animal Farm is strongly allegorical, but it presents a very nice balance between levels of meaning. On the first level, the story about the animals is very moving. You can be upset when Boxer is taken away by the horse slaughterer without being too aware of what he stands for. But at the same time, each of the animals does serve as a symbol. The story’s second level involves the careful critique Orwell constructed to comment on Soviet Russia.

Boxer

14. Allegory (cont’d)

Yet there is no reason that allegory must be limited to two levels. It is possible to argue that Animal Farm also has a third and more general level of meaning. For instance, the pigs need not only represent specific tyrannical soviet leaders. They could also be symbols for tyranny more broadly: their qualities are therefore not simply the historical characteristics of a set of actual men but are the qualities of all leaders who rely on repression and manipulation.

Squealer, Snowball, & Napoleon

15. Satire

In a satire , the writer attacks a serious issue by presenting it in a ridiculous light or otherwise poking fun at it. Orwell uses satire to expose what he saw as the myth of Soviet socialism. Thus, the novel tells a story that people of all ages can understand, but it also tells us a second story— that of the real-life revolution.

Soviet Coat of Arms

16. Irony

Irony results when there is a disparity between what an audience would expect and what really happens. Orwell uses a particular type of irony – dramatic irony. He relies on the difference between what the animals understand and what we, the audience, can conclude about the situation at Animal Farm.

We know just what the animals know, but we can see so much more of its significance than they can. The conclusions we reach that the animals never quite get to – that the pigs are decadent, corrupt, and immoral – are all the more powerful because we arrive at them ourselves, without the narrator pointing these things out directly.

Napoleon overindulging himself. Snowball below the commandments.

17. Irony (cont’d)

Orwell uses dramatic irony to create a particularly subtle satire. Satire stages a critique of an individual, group, or idea by exaggerating faults and revealing hypocrisies. The dramatic irony of Animal Farm achieves this aim indirectly. We see the hypocrisy that the animals don’t and therefore understand in this backward fashion that the book is deeply critical of the pigs.

18. When History and Literature Merge

Critics often consider Animal Farm to be an allegory of the Russian Revolution. In the early 1900s, Russia’s Czar Nicholas II faced an increasingly discontented populace. Freed from feudal serfdom in 1861, many Russian peasants were struggling to survive under an oppressive government. By 1917, amidst the tremendous suffering of World War I, a revolution began. In two major battles, the Czar’s government was overthrown and replaced by the Bolshevik leadership of Vladimir Lenin. When Lenin died in 1924, his former colleagues Leon Trotsky, hero of the early Revolution, and Joseph Stalin, head of the Communist Party, struggled for power. Stalin won the battle, and he deported Trotsky into permanent exile. Czar Nicholas II Vladimir Lenin Joseph Stalin Leon Trotsky

19. Joseph Stalin

Once in power, Stalin began, with despotic urgency and exalted nationalism, to move the Soviet Union into the modern industrial age. His government seized land in order to create collective farms. Stalin’s Five Year Plan was an attempt to modernize Soviet industry. Many peasants refused to give up their land, so to counter resistance Stalin used vicious military tactics. Rigged trials led to executions of an estimated 20 million government officials and ordinary citizens. The government controlled the flow and content of information to the people, and all but outlawed churches.

Joseph Stalin

20. Napoleon = Joseph Stalin

  • Napoleon
  • Boar who leads the rebellion against Farmer Jones
  • After the rebellion’s success, he systematically begins to control all aspects of the farm until he is an undisputed tyrant.
  • Joseph Stain
  • The communist dictator of the Soviet Union from 1922-1953 who killed all who opposed him.
  • He loved power and used the KGB (secret police) to enforce his ruthless, corrupt antics.

21. Farmer Jones = Czar Nicholas II

  • Farmer Jones
  • The irresponsible owner of the farm
  • Lets his animals starve and beats them with a whip
  • Sometimes shows random kindness
  • Czar Nicholas II
  • Weak Russian leader during the early 1900s
  • Often cruel and brutal to his subjects
  • Displays isolated kindess

22. Snowball = Leon Trotsky

  • Snowball
  • Boar who becomes one of the rebellion’s most valuable leaders.
  • After drawing complicated plans for the construction of a windmill, he is chased off of the farm forever by Napoleon’s dogs and thereafter used as a scapegoat for the animals’ troubles.
  • Leon Trotsky
  • A pure communist leader who was influenced by the teachings of Karl Marx.
  • He wanted to improve life for people in Russia, but was driven away by Lenin’s KGB.

23. Characters

  • Old Major
  • An old boar whose speech about the evils perpetrated by humans rouses the animals into rebelling.
  • His philosophy concerning the tyranny of Man is named Animalism.
  • He teaches the animals the song “Beasts of England”
  • Dies before revolution
  • Karl Marx
  • The inventor of communism
  • Wants to unite the working class to overthrow the government.
  • Dies before the Russian Revolution

24. Who is Karl Marx?

Many of the ideals behind the Soviet revolution were based on the writings and teachings of Karl Marx. A German intellectual who lived in the mid-1800s, Marx believed that societies are divided into two segments, a working class and an owner class. The working class creates all the products, while the owner class enjoys all the benefits of these products. This class division leads to inequality and oppression of the working class. Marx’s objective was to create a classless society in which the work is shared by all for the benefit of all, and he believed revolution was the way to achieve this goal.

25. Characterization in Fables

We already know that a fable is a narration intended to enforce a useful truth. Fables have two important characteristics. First, they teach a moral or lesson. In Animal Farm, the moral involves Orwell’s views about Soviet politics. Second, the characters are most frequently animals. These animal characters often function as a satiric device to point out the follies of humankind. Though Old Major, Snowball, and Napoleon may represent Karl Marx, Leon Trotsky, and Joseph Stalin, many of the story characters are much more general. Some animals are grouped together as a single character—“the sheep,” “the hens,” and “the dogs.” Orwell also capitalizes on the traits generally associated with particular animals, such as sheep as followers and dogs as loyal.

26. Squealer & Boxer

  • Squealer
  • A big mouth pig who becomes Napoleon’s mouthpiece. Throughout the novel, he displays his ability to manipulate the animals’ thoughts through the use of hollow, yet convincing rhetoric.
  • Represents the propaganda department that worked to support Stalin’s image; the members of the department would use lies to convince the people to follow Stalin.
  • Boxer
  • A dedicated but dimwitted horse who aids in the building of the windmill but is sold to a glue-boiler after collapsing from exhaustion.
  • Represents the dedicated, but tricked communist supporters of Stalin. Many stayed loyal even after it was obvious Stalin was a tyrant. Eventually they were betrayed, ignored, and even killed by him.

Boxer Squealer

27. Jessie & Moses

  • Jessie
  • The farm’s sheepdog, she keeps tabs on the pigs and is among the first to suspect that something is wrong at Animal Farm.
  • Moses
  • A tame raven and sometimes-pet of Jones who tells the animals stories about a paradise called Sugarcandy Mountain.
  • Moses represents religion. Stalin used religious principles to influence people to work and to avoid revolt.

Jessie Moses

28. More Characters

Pilkington Jones’ neighbor, he finds a way to profit from Animal Farm by forming an alliance with the pigs.

Muriel A goat who believes in the rebellion, she watches as Animal Farm slips away from its founding principles.

Mollie A vain horse who resists the animal rebellion because she doesn’t want to give up the petting and treats she receives from humans. Mollie represents vain, selfish people in Russia and throughout the world who ignored the revolution and sought residence in more inviting countries.

Benjamin The most cynical of all the animals, the farm’s donkey doubts the leadership of the pigs but is faithfully devoted to Boxer. Benjamin represents all the skeptical people in Russia and elsewhere who weren’t sure revolution would change anything.

The Sheep Not tremendously clever, the sheep remind themselves of the principles of animalism by chanting “four legs good, two legs bad.”

The Dogs

Napoleon’s private army that used fear to force the animals to work; they killed any opponent of Napoleon. The dogs represent Stalin’s loyal KGB (secret police). The KGB were not really police, but mercenaries used to force support for Stalin.

30. Animalism = Communism

  • Animalism
  • Taught my Old Major
  • No rich, but no poor
  • Better life for workers
  • All animals are equal
  • Everyone owns the farm
  • Communism
  • Invented by Karl Marx
  • All people are equal
  • Government owns everything
  • People own the government

31. Animal Farm Revolution = Russian Revolution

  • Animal Farm Revolution
  • Was supposed to make life better for all, but . . .
  • Life was worse at the end.
  • The leaders became the same as, or worse than the other farmers (humans) they rebelled against.
  • Russian Revolution
  • Was supposed to fix the problems created by the Czar, but . . .
  • Life was even worse after the revolution.
  • Stalin made the Czar look like a nice guy.

Meanwhile, Oregon’s Senate President Peter Courtney’s office told ABC13that each missing Senator was hit with a $500 fine on Friday, which would continue daily until they vote on the legislation

Republicans immediately pushed back.

“We will file legal action,” said Sen. Tim Knopp, a Republican from Bend who has said he has been in three states in the past three days. “If they were trying to bring us back, threatening to arrest us and impose fines isn’t going to work.”

Senate Majority Leader Ginny Burdick said Republicans have no legal recourse as the fine is explicitly written in statute. A GoFundMe to cover the rogue lawmakers’ expenses and fines raised nearly $30,000 in less than a day. State ethics laws prohibit officials from receiving gifts exceeding $50, so it’s unclear whether senators could access the money. –ABC13

State police, meanwhile, will have the ability to track down senators and force them into a patrol car to return to the capitol, though the agency promises to use “polite communication” and patience throughout the process. 

If Boquist starts shooting, we imagine that could change rapidly.

Record Wave Of African Migrants Reach US-Mexico Border, Complain Of Bad Conditions.

Migrants from Sub-Saharan Africa have begun flying across the Atlantic to South and Central America to try and enter the US at the Southern Border.

We are already at record levels of illegal immigration at our Southern border and now we see even more people flying half way around the world to travel through several countries to try and enter the US.

While Trump has used emergency powers to being construction on a border wall, many mainstream publications such as the New York Times have called on Congress and Democrats to give Trump the funding he needs. Many questions arise in response to stories like these.

Why won’t Democrats provide funding for shelters, food, and personnel, and why are so many Africans skipping over safe countries to try and enter the US?

While many far left and social justice activists decry the harsh conditions faced by these migrants we seem to see no clear path to securing the border, keeping these people safe, and disincentivizing these journeys.

The Communist Takeover Of America – 45 Declared Goals

On January 10, 1963, the House of Representatives and later the Senate began reviewing a document entitled ‘Communist Goals for Taking Over America.’ It contained an agenda of 45 separate issues (attacks and techniques) that, in hindsight, were quite shocking then and equally stunning today.

The 45 Communist Goals Democrats Thought They Had Fulfilled

On January 10, 1963, the House of Representatives and later the Senate began reviewing a document entitled ‘Communist Goals for Taking Over America.’  It contained an agenda of 45 separate issues (attacks and techniques) that, in hindsight, were quite shocking then and equally stunning today.  

Over the last 50 plus years since this list was introduced in the House, many things have changed, among them that the Soviet Union is gone and Communism isn’t mentioned by the controlled MSM anymore.  Why? Because the founders of Communism, World Zionism, is now the dominant force in the Western World and controls virtually every major geopolitical, social, cultural and commercial aspect of our existence.  

CLEO54123: Muslim Brotherhood and Communist plans for America

Most importantly, about 27 of the 45 Communist (Zionist) Goals on the original list have been or are being achieved.  (History has largely retired the other 18).   These remaining 27 items will…or should…shock you.  It is essential to also understand that World Zionism CREATED Communism, took down Russia, set up the Soviet Union and created two World Wars in which over 100 million died.  Whether the term is ‘Communism’ or ‘Bolshevism’ or ‘Socialism’  or ‘Marxism‘ they all emanate from one source – World Zionism.  That must never be forgotten.   

So, as you read through this list, understand and never forget that these goals, most now 100% implemented, are all ZIONIST goals.   

Here, in part, are the most blatant Zionist Communist achievements listed in that original list of 45 Goals.   Read this group very carefully…these are the most sweeping, revolutionary, devastating and deadly Goals on the list from 1963.  ( I will list all original 45 further down the page.)   […]

The highest taxes in the nation have not killed (yet) the current success of the high tech sector in the Bay Area, generating immense tax revenues that can be squandered on a useless “high speed” train line that will never be completed and still leave a budget surplus.

Money, good weather, great food, amazing scenery, and other amenities make for The Good Life, such that the political and business elites who seem to never get tired of congratulating themselves for creating the closest thing to paradise.  The fact that this leaves behind the non-coastal areas of the state, and the taxes and cost of living (especially housing that is in short supply due to zoning and other land use restrictions) make life difficult for middle-class Californians everywhere is of no concern.

Deadly, Drug-Resistant Infection Showing up Around the United States

A drug-resistant germ that has hit the U.S. is being called a “creature from the black lagoon” by a CDC official who worries about its impact on frail Americans.

“It is a creature from the black lagoon. It bubbled up and now it is everywhere.”

Dr. Tom Chiller, who heads the CDC’s mycotic diseases branch, said. The fungus can “persist on surfaces in healthcare environments. This can result in spread of C. auris between patients in healthcare facilities,” the CDC warned. Most cases in America “have been detected in the New York City area, New Jersey, and the Chicago area,” the CDC said. Chiller said C. auris has hit “the sickest of the sick — people who are in and out of ICUs and also have central lines or immune-system-lowering conditions such as diabetes.” Cases of the fungus in America “are a result of inadvertent introduction into the United States from a patient who recently received healthcare in a country where C. auris has been reported or a result of local spread after such an introduction,” the CDC said. The CDC has estimated that overall, roughly half of those infected die within 90 days. The fungus is feared because nothing in the current arsenal of drugs used to treat such diseases can kill it.

Deadly, Drug-Resistant Infection Showing up Around the United States

A drug-resistant germ that has hit the U.S. is being called a “creature from the black lagoon” by a CDC official who worries about its impact on frail Americans.

With an ever-increasing load of cases, the federal Centers for Disease Control has declared, “Candida aurisis an emerging fungus that presents a serious global health threat.”

One of its top officials put the stakes in layman’s language.

“It is a creature from the black lagoon. It bubbled up and now it is everywhere.” Dr. Tom Chiller, who heads the CDC’s mycotic diseases branch, said.

The fungus can “persist on surfaces in healthcare environments. This can result in spread of C. aurisbetween patients in healthcare facilities,” the CDC warned.

Most cases in America “have been detected in the New York City area, New Jersey, and the Chicago area,” the CDC said, though cases have been reported in Texas, Oklahoma, California, Florida, Virginia, Maryland, Indiana, Massachusetts and Connecticut. The CDC said that as of February, 617 confirmed or probable cases of the fungus have been reported in the U.S.

“We’re very alarmed because some strains of C. auris in other countries are resistant to all three major classes of antifungal drugs, which we’ve never seen before,” Chiller said, according to Consumer Reports. “We’re taking as proactive and aggressive an approach as possible to try to keep it in check in the United States.”

Candida auris is a fungal infection that does not respond to antifungal medications, posing the same problem that excessive use of antibiotics has created in the growth and spread of anti-bacterial resistance. This is a looming threat to public health. https://nyti.ms/2Vy4PSZ 25:08 PM – Apr 6, 2019Twitter Ads info and privacyA Mysterious Infection, Spanning the Globe in a Climate of SecrecyThe rise of Candida auris embodies a serious and growing public health threat: drug-resistant germs.nytimes.comSee nalini visvanathan’s other Tweets

The fungus attacks those who are weakest.

“We haven’t seen it in the general community. It’s mainly a hospital-acquired infection,” said Dr. Peter Pappas, a professor of medicine at the University of Alabama and spokesman for the Infectious Diseases Society of America.

Chiller said C. auris has hit “the sickest of the sick — people who are in and out of ICUs and also have central lines or immune-system-lowering conditions such as diabetes.” Central lines are the intravenous tubes connected to provide patients with medication and fluids.

Cases of the fungus in America “are a result of inadvertent introduction into the United States from a patient who recently received healthcare in a country where C. aurishas been reported or a result of local spread after such an introduction,” the CDC said.

A recent case at New York City’s Mount Sinai Hospital left hospital officials concerned because after the patient who suffered from the fungus died, they faced a totally unexpected problem, The New York Times reported. The fungus had spread throughout the room.

“Everything was positive — the walls, the bed, the doors, the curtains, the phones, the sink, the whiteboard, the poles, the pump,” said Dr. Scott Lorin, the hospital’s president. “The mattress, the bed rails, the canister holes, the window shades, the ceiling, everything in the room was positive.”

The drug-resistant fungus has wreaked havoc abroad. A neonatal unit in Venezuela has hit hard; and a British medical center closed its intensive care unit after the fungus invaded. The fungus has struck in Spain, South Africa, India and Pakistan as well. In the Spanish outbreak, 41 percent of those infected died within 30 days.

The CDC has estimated that overall, roughly half of those infected die within 90 days.

The fungus is feared because nothing in the current arsenal of drugs used to treat such diseases can kill it.

“It’s an enormous problem. We depend on being able to treat those patients with antifungals,” Matthew Fisher, a professor of fungal epidemiology at Imperial College London, said.

Are you worried there are germs that nothing can kill?

C. auris is the top threat among resistant infections, Dr. Lynn Sosa, Connecticut’s deputy state epidemiologist, said.

“It’s pretty much unbeatable and difficult to identity,” she said.

Some link the rise of drug-resistant bacteria and fungi to the use of pesticides.

Interestingly, multi drug resistant Candida Auris appears to have arisen as a result of anti-fungal pesticides used for commercial agriculture. As we apply more pressure on #anthropocene era planet you can expect more and more of these resistant bugs to arise. 2/249:14 AM – Apr 6, 201921 people are talking about thisTwitter Ads info and privacy

Outbreaks are often kept quiet by hospitals that do not want to be seen as centers of infection. That frustrates those who want the public informed. In the case of Royal Brompton Hospital in London, the initial 2015 outbreak was kept under wraps for months.

“Why the heck are we reading about an outbreak almost a year and a half later — and not have it front-page news the day after it happens?” Dr. Kevin Kavanagh of Kentucky, who chairs the patient advocacy group Health Watch USA, said. “You wouldn’t tolerate this at a restaurant with a food poisoning outbreak.”

Operation Mountain Guardian – largest terrorism drill ever takes place in Denver as Obama visits on the 27th. This is when we have a Elenin-Earth-Sun-Merucry alignment happening. Worth keeping an eye on.


The overall Operation Mountain Guardian exercise objectives are:

  • Communications: Assess the ability to establish and maintain multi-agency and multi-jurisdictional communications in response to a terrorism incident.
  • Hazmat Response and Decontamination: Evaluate the capability to coordinate multiple hazmat response teams and assess their ability to perform initial response actions.
  • Public Safety & Security Response: Evaluate the ability to establish scene security and crime scene preservation, coordinate a multi-jurisdictional response, and manage intelligence information in order to mitigate the effects of the event.
  • Explosive Device Response Operations: Evaluate the capability to manage and coordinate explosive device response operations using regional bomb squad teams.
  • Onsite Incident Management: Evaluate the ability to implement the Incident Command System (ICS) and establish multi-jurisdictional command and control.
  • Triage and Pre-Hospital Treatment: Examine the ability of EMS to provide effective pre-hospital emergency medical care in response to a terrorism incident.
  • Medical Surge: Evaluate medical surge capability at area hospitals.

Largest Martial Law Drill Ever: Code Name – Operation Mountain Guardian

 THE DOOMSDAY TERMINATOR 3.


Psalm 46 

1 God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. 2 Therefore we will not fear, though the earth should change, though the mountains shake in the heart of the sea; 3 though its waters roar and foam, though the mountains tremble with its tumult. 4 There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God, the holy habitation of the Most High. 5 God is in the midst of the city; it shall not be moved; God will help it when the morning dawns. 6 The nations are in an uproar, the kingdoms totter; he utters his voice, the earth melts. 7 The Lord of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge. 8 Come, behold the works of the Lord; see what desolations he has brought on the earth. 9 He makes wars cease to the end of the earth; he breaks the bow, and shatters the spear; he burns the shields with fire. 10 “Be still, and know that I am God! I am exalted among the nations, I am exalted in the earth.” 11 The Lord of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge.
