I also raised up prophets1 from among your sons and Nazirites2 from among your young men. Is this not true, people of Israel?" declares the LORD.
"But you made the Nazirites drink wine and commanded the prophets not to prophesy.3
"Now then, I will crush you as a cart crushes when loaded with grain.4
The swift will not escape,5 the strong6 will not muster their strength, and the warrior will not save his life.7
The archer8 will not stand his ground, the fleet-footed soldier will not get away, and the horseman9 will not save his life.10
Even the bravest warriors11 will flee naked on that day," declares the LORD.
