"Why are we sitting here? Gather together! Let us flee to the fortified cities1 and perish there! For the LORD our God has doomed us to perish and given us poisoned water2 to drink, because we have sinned3 against him.
We hoped for peace4 but no good has come, for a time of healing but there was only terror.516
The snorting of the enemy's horses6 is heard from Dan;7 at the neighing of their stallions the whole land trembles.8 They have come to devour9 the land and everything in it, the city and all who live there."
