He that dasheth in pieces is come up before thy face:keep the munition,watch the way, make thy loinsstrong , fortify thy powermightily.2
For the LORD hath turned away the excellency of Jacob, as the excellency of Israel: for the emptiers have emptied them out , and marred their vine branches.3
The shield of his mighty men is made red , the valiantmen are in scarlet :a the chariots shall be with flamingtorches in the day of his preparation , and the fir trees shall be terribly shaken .
The chariots shall rage in the streets, they shall justle one against another in the broad ways: they shall seem like torches, they shall run like the lightnings.5
He shall recount his worthies:b they shall stumble in their walk; they shall make haste to the wall thereof, and the defence shall be prepared .
The gates of the rivers shall be opened , and the palace shall be dissolved .c
