"Have I not kept this in reserve and sealed it in my vaults?135
It is mine to avenge;2 I will repay.3 In due time their foot will slip;4 their day of disaster is near and their doom rushes upon them.5"
The LORD will judge his people6 and have compassion7 on his servants8 when he sees their strength is gone and no one is left, slave9 or free.
He will say: "Now where are their gods, the rock they took refuge in,1038
the gods who ate the fat of their sacrifices and drank the wine of their drink offerings?11 Let them rise up to help you! Let them give you shelter!
"See now that I myself am He!12 There is no god besides me.13 I put to death14 and I bring to life,15 I have wounded and I will heal,16 and no one can deliver out of my hand.1740
I lift my hand18 to heaven and declare: As surely as I live forever,1941
when I sharpen my flashing sword20 and my hand grasps it in judgment, I will take vengeance21 on my adversaries and repay those who hate me.2242
I will make my arrows drunk with blood,23 while my sword devours flesh:24 the blood of the slain and the captives, the heads of the enemy leaders."
Rejoice,25 O nations, with his people,ab for he will avenge the blood of his servants;26 he will take vengeance on his enemies27 and make atonement for his land and people.2844
Moses came with Joshuac29 son of Nun and spoke all the words of this song in the hearing of the people.
