Have No Fear [the lie]

The context: The prophet Deborah tells Barak that Sisera will be delivered into his hand, and when Sisera and his army are routed, he seeks shelter and rest... Jael (a woman) offers it to him with the above words... and then drives a tent stake through his temple as he sleeps.

Sooooo, perhaps. from now on, I will just mention the verses when God or God's angels are speaking these words. Although, that means I will leave out several instances of women comforting other women not to be afraid during childbirth. I'm glad those were included in the Bible.
