He that dasheth in pieces is come up before thy face:keep the munition,watch the way, make thy loinsstrong , fortify thy powermightily.2
For the LORD hath turned away the excellency of Jacob, as the excellency of Israel: for the emptiers have emptied them out , and marred their vine branches.3
The shield of his mighty men is made red , the valiantmen are in scarlet :a the chariots shall be with flamingtorches in the day of his preparation , and the fir trees shall be terribly shaken .
The chariots shall rage in the streets, they shall justle one against another in the broad ways: they shall seem like torches, they shall run like the lightnings.5
He shall recount his worthies:b they shall stumble in their walk; they shall make haste to the wall thereof, and the defence shall be prepared .
The gates of the rivers shall be opened , and the palace shall be dissolved .c7
And Huzzabd shall be led away captive , she shall be brought up , and her maids shall lead her as with the voice of doves,tabering upon their breasts.8
But Nineveh is of olde like a pool of water: yet they shall flee away . Stand , stand , shall they cry; but none shall look back .
Take ye the spoil of silver, take the spoil of gold: for there is none endf of the store and glory out of all the pleasantfurniture.10
She is empty, and void, and waste : and the heartmelteth , and the knees smite together, and much pain is in all loins, and the faces of them all gatherblackness.
