15 so that a heart melts, and the fallen {multiply} at all of their gates. I gave a sword for slaughter, [and] alas! It is made for flashing, it is grasped for slaughtering. 16 Gather together, strike to the right; cause [to] go to the left, where your {edge} [is] directed. 17 And also {I myself} will {clap my hands}, and I will satisfy my rage! I, Yahweh, I have spoken."
