With a noise like that of chariots1 they leap over the mountaintops, like a crackling fire2 consuming stubble, like a mighty army drawn up for battle.
At the sight of them, nations are in anguish;3 every face turns pale.4
They charge like warriors;5 they scale walls like soldiers. They all march in line,6 not swerving7 from their course.
