4 Behold, he that keepeth Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep.

5. JEREMIAH WAS SO CONFIDENT OF GODS HELP
Jeremiah 20:11
- But the LORD is with me as a mighty terrible one: therefore my persecutors shall stumble, and they shall not prevail: they shall be greatly ashamed; for they shall not prosper: their everlasting confusion shall never be forgotten.

6. JESUS GOT HELP FROM GOD THE ENTIRE TIME

20 Our soul waiteth for the LORD: he is our help and our shield.
