The Lord is a jealous and avenging God; the Lord takes vengeance and is fierce ina wrath. The Lord takes vengeance against His foes; He is furious with His enemies.b3
The Lord is slow to anger but great in power; the Lord will never leave [the guilty] unpunished. His path is in the whirlwind and storm,c and clouds are the dust beneath His feet.
He rebukes the sea so that it dries up, and He makes all the rivers run dry.d Bashan and Carmel wither;e even the flower of Lebanon withers.
The mountains quake before Him, and the hills melt; the earth tremblesfgat His presence- the world and all who live in it.h6
Who can withstand His indignation? Who can endure His burning anger?i His wrath is poured out like fire, even rocks are shattered before Him.
The Lord is good, a stronghold in a day of distress; He cares for those who take refuge in Him.j8
But He will completely destroy Ninevehk with an overwhelming flood, and He will chase His enemies into darkness.
