"See now that I myself am He!1 There is no god besides me.2 I put to death3 and I bring to life,4 I have wounded and I will heal,5 and no one can deliver out of my hand.640
I lift my hand7 to heaven and declare: As surely as I live forever,841
when I sharpen my flashing sword9 and my hand grasps it in judgment, I will take vengeance10 on my adversaries and repay those who hate me.1142
I will make my arrows drunk with blood,12 while my sword devours flesh:13 the blood of the slain and the captives, the heads of the enemy leaders."
Rejoice,14 O nations, with his people,ab for he will avenge the blood of his servants;15 he will take vengeance on his enemies16 and make atonement for his land and people.17
