Their wine is the venom of serpents, the deadly poison of cobras.134
"Have I not kept this in reserve and sealed it in my vaults?235
It is mine to avenge;3 I will repay.4 In due time their foot will slip;5 their day of disaster is near and their doom rushes upon them.6"
The LORD will judge his people7 and have compassion8 on his servants9 when he sees their strength is gone and no one is left, slave10 or free.
He will say: "Now where are their gods, the rock they took refuge in,1138
the gods who ate the fat of their sacrifices and drank the wine of their drink offerings?12 Let them rise up to help you! Let them give you shelter!
"See now that I myself am He!13 There is no god besides me.14 I put to death15 and I bring to life,16 I have wounded and I will heal,17 and no one can deliver out of my hand.1840
I lift my hand19 to heaven and declare: As surely as I live forever,2041
when I sharpen my flashing sword21 and my hand grasps it in judgment, I will take vengeance22 on my adversaries and repay those who hate me.2342
I will make my arrows drunk with blood,24 while my sword devours flesh:25 the blood of the slain and the captives, the heads of the enemy leaders."
Rejoice,26 O nations, with his people,ab for he will avenge the blood of his servants;27 he will take vengeance on his enemies28 and make atonement for his land and people.29
