Lift up the Heel against Me (To).
 
To kick me (physically or morally); to treat with contumely or contempt: to oppose, to become an enemy. As an unruly horse kicks the master who trusts and feeds him.   1
        “Yea, mine own familiar friend, in whom I trusted, which did eat of my bread, hath lifted his heel against me.”—Psalm xli. 9.
 


 Lift not up your Horn on High. (Psalm lxxv. 5.)Lift up the Voice (To).
