Behold, the name of Jehovah cometh from far, burning [with] his anger -- a grievous conflagration; his lips are full of indignation, and his tongue as a consuming fire;
and his breath as an overflowing torrent, which reacheth even to the neck, to sift the nations with the sieve of destruction, a and [to put] a bridle into the jaws of the peoples, that causeth them to go astray.
Ye shall have a song, as in the night when a feast is sanctified; b and joy of heart, as of one who goeth with a pipe to come unto the mountain of Jehovah, to the Rock of Israel.
And Jehovah will cause the majesty of his voice to be heard, and will shew the lighting down of his arm with indignation of anger, and a flame of consuming fire, with waterflood and storm and hailstones.
For through the voice of Jehovah shall the Assyrian be broken down: he will smite [him] c with the rod.
And wherever shall pass the appointed staff, which Jehovah shall lay upon him, it shall be with tambours and harps; and with tumultuous battles will he fight with it. d33
For Topheth e is prepared of old; for the king also it is prepared: he hath made it deep and large; its pile is fire and much wood; the breath of Jehovah, like a stream of brimstone, doth kindle it.
