Look, Yahweha comes from far away, His anger burning and heavy with smoke.b His lips are full of fury, and His tongue is like a consuming fire.
His breath is like an overflowing torrent that rises to the neck. [He comes] to sift the nations in a sieve of destruction and to put a bridle on the jaws of the peoples to lead [them] astray.
Your singing will be like that on the night of a holy festival, And [your] heart will rejoice like one who walks [to the music] of a flute, going up to the mountain of the Lord, to the Rock of Israel.
And the Lord will make the splendor of His voice heard and reveal His arm striking in angry wrath and a flame of consuming fire, in driving rain, a torrent, and hailstones.
Assyria will be shattered by the voice of the Lord. He will strike with a rod.
And every stroke of the appointedc staff that the Lord brings down on him will be [to the sound] of tambourines and lyres; He will fight against him with brandished weapons.
Indeed! Tophethd has been ready for the king for a long time now. His funeral pyre is deep and wide, with plenty of fire and wood. The breath of the Lord, like a torrent of brimstone, kindles it.
