Here's Ray Lewis's response to Solomon Wilcots's first post-game question after the Ravens beat the Broncos in double overtime. He's quoting Isaiah 54:17, which in the New King James Version reads:

No weapon formed against you shall prosper,
And every tongue which rises against you in judgment
You shall condemn.
This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord,
And their righteousness is from Me,"
Says the Lord.

Ray Lewis is certainly aware that he's associated with weaponry in the eyes of many a football fan, but these do not seem like the words of a man making a deliberate attempt to mess with those fans. Just a spot-on incidental attempt, from someone who no doubt has much use for the Bible verse that specifically addresses haters.

Those haters will kindly proceed to left, anyway: Lewis had game-high 17 tackles this afternoon in what was very nearly his final game.
