ADONAI is a jealous and vengeful God. ADONAI avenges; he knows how to be angry. ADONAI takes vengeance on his foes and stores up wrath for his enemies.
ADONAI is slow to anger, but great in power; and he does not leave the guilty unpunished. ADONAI's path is in the whirlwind and storm, and the clouds are the dust of his feet.
He rebukes the sea and leaves it dry, he dries up all the rivers. Bashan and the Karmel languish; the flower of the L'vanon withers.
The mountains quake before him, and the hills dissolve; the earth collapses in his presence, the world and everyone living in it.
Who can withstand his fury? Who can endure his fierce anger? His wrath is poured out like fire, the rocks broken to pieces before him.
ADONAI is good, a stronghold in time of trouble; he takes care of those who take refuge in him.
But with an overwhelming flood he will make an end of [Ninveh's] place, and darkness will pursue his enemies.
