"For the day of Yahweh [is] near against all the nations! Just as you have done, it will be done to you. Your deeds will return on your [own] head. For just as you have drunk on {my holy mountain}, all the nations will drink continually. They will drink and they will slurp, and they will be as [if] they had never been.

And {there will not be any longer} painful thorn and a sharp thornbush for the house of Israel from {anywhere around them} [from those] {who are despising them}, and they will know that I [am] the Lord Yahweh." '" Thus says the Lord Yahweh: "When I gather the house of Israel from the peoples to which they were scattered [about] in them, and I show myself holy in them before the eyes of the nations, then they will live on their soil, which I gave to my servant Jacob. And they will live on it in safety, and they will build houses, and they will plant vineyards, and they will live in safety when I execute my judgments on all {those who despise them from all around them}, and [then] they will know that I [am] Yahweh their God."

O Lord, at your right [hand] he will shatter kings in the day of his anger. He will judge among the nations; he will fill [them] with corpses. He will shatter [the] {rulers} of many countries. He will drink from [the] stream by the road; therefore he will lift up [his] head.

"And you, son of man, prophesy to the mountains of Israel; and [so] you must say, 'Mountains of Israel, hear the word of Yahweh; thus says the Lord Yahweh: "Because the enemy said concerning you, 'Ah, and [the] ancient high places will be to us as a possession!'" ' Therefore prophesy, and you must say, 'Thus says the Lord Yahweh: "{Because indeed} {when you were desolate}, then they crushed you from all around, so that you became a possession to the remainder of the nations, and you became {a byword and object of slander for the people}." read more.
Therefore, mountains of Israel, hear the word of the Lord Yahweh; thus says the Lord Yahweh to the mountains and to the hills, to the river channels and to the valleys and to the ruins that [are] desolate and to the cities that [are] abandoned [and] that have become as plunder and as scorn for the remainder of the nations that [are] from all around. Therefore thus says the Lord Yahweh: "{Certainly} in the fire of my passion I spoke against the rest of the nations and against all Edom, who made my land as possession, because of its pastureland for plunder, for themselves in all of [the] joy of their whole heart [and] in [their] inner disdain." Therefore prophesy against the land of Israel, and you must say to the mountains and to the hills, to the river channels and to the valleys, thus says the Lord Yahweh: "Look! I spoke in my passion and in my anger [the] insult of [the] peoples you have endured." Therefore thus says the Lord Yahweh: "{I swear} {certainly} [that] the nations {that are all around you}, they indeed will endure their disgrace.

Proclaim this among the nations: {Prepare for war}! Stir up the mighty warriors; let them approach and come up; [let] all the men of war approach. Beat your cutting tools of iron into swords and your pruning hooks into spears; let the weakling say, 'I am a mighty warrior!' Hurry and come, all the nations, from all around, and gather [yourselves] there. Bring down your mighty warriors, O Yahweh! read more.
Let the nations be roused and let them come up to the valley of Jehoshaphat, for there I will sit to judge all the nations from all around. Send forth [the] sickle, for the harvest is ripe! Go tread, for [the] winepress is full! The vats overflow, because their evil [is] great! Commotion, commotion in the valley of decision! For the day of Yahweh [is] near in the valley of decision! [The] sun and [the] moon grow dark, and [the] stars {have withheld} their splendor. And Yahweh roars from Zion; from Jerusalem he utters his voice, and [the] heavens and [the] earth shake. But Yahweh [is] a refuge for his people, and a protection for the children of Israel.

Already now the ax is positioned at the root of the trees; therefore every tree not producing good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. I baptize you with water for repentance, but the one who comes after me is more powerful than I [am], whose sandals I am not worthy to carry. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire. His winnowing shovel [is] in his hand, and he will clean out his threshing floor and will gather his wheat into the storehouse, but he will burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire."

He put before them another parable, saying, "The kingdom of heaven may be compared to a man who sowed good seed in his field. But while his people were sleeping, his enemy came and sowed darnel in the midst of the wheat and went away. So when the {wheat} sprouted and yielded grain, then the darnel appeared also. read more.
So the slaves of the master of the house came [and] said to him, 'Master, did you not sow good seed in your field? How then does it have darnel?' And he said to them, 'An enemy has done this!' So the slaves said to him, 'Then do you want us to go [and] gather them?' But he said, "No, lest [when you] gather the darnel you uproot the wheat together with it. Let both grow together until the harvest, and at the season of the harvest I will tell the reapers, "First gather the darnel and tie it into bundles to burn them, but gather the wheat into my storehouse." '" He put before them another parable, saying, "The kingdom of heaven is like a mustard seed that a man took [and] sowed in his field. {It} is the smallest of all the seeds, but when it is grown it is larger than the garden herbs and becomes a tree, so that the birds of the sky come and nest in its branches." He told them another parable: "The kingdom of heaven is like yeast that a woman took [and] put into three measures of wheat flour until the whole [batch] was leavened." Jesus spoke all these [things] to the crowds in parables, and he was saying nothing to them without a parable, in order that what was spoken through the prophet would be fulfilled, who said, "I will open my mouth in parables; I will proclaim what has been hidden since the creation." Then he left the crowds [and] came into the house, and his disciples came to him saying, "Explain the parable of the darnel in the field to us." So he answered [and] said, "The one who sows the good seed is the Son of Man, and the field is the world. And the good seed--these are the sons of the kingdom, but the darnel are the sons of the evil one. And the enemy who sowed them is the devil, and the harvest is the end of the age, and the reapers are angels. Thus just as the darnel is gathered and burned with fire, so it will be at the end of the age. The Son of Man will send out his angels and they will gather out of his kingdom all the causes of sin and those who do lawless deeds, and throw them into the fiery furnace. In that place there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth! Then the righteous will shine like the sun in the kingdom of their Father. The one who has ears, let him hear!

And [while] the people were waiting expectantly and all were pondering in their hearts concerning John, whether perhaps he might be the Christ, John answered them all, saying, "I baptize you with water, but the one who is more powerful than I [am] is coming, of whom I am not worthy to untie the strap of his sandals. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire. His winnowing shovel [is] in his hand, to clean out his threshing floor and to gather the wheat into his storehouse, but he will burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire."

And another angel came out of the temple, crying out with a loud voice to the one seated on the cloud, "Send out your sickle and reap, because the hour to reap has come, because the harvest of the earth is ripe!" And the one seated on the cloud swung his sickle on the earth, and the earth was reaped. And another angel came out of the temple [that is] in heaven; he also had a sharp sickle. read more.
And another angel who had authority over the fire [went out] from the altar, and he called out with a loud voice to the one who had the sharp sickle, saying, "Send out your sharp sickle and harvest the clusters of grapes from the vine of the earth, because its grapes are at their prime!" And the angel swung his sickle into the earth and harvested the vine of the earth, and threw [the grapes] into the great winepress of the wrath of God. And the winepress was stomped outside the city, and blood went out from the winepress up to the bridles of the horses, about one thousand six hundred stadia.



Look! The day of Yahweh [is] coming, cruel and wrath and [the] burning [of] anger, to make the earth a desolation, and he will destroy its sinners from it. For the stars of the heavens and their constellations will not flash forth their light; the sun will keep back when it comes out, and [the] moon will not cause its light to shine. And I will punish [the] world [for its] evil and [the] wicked [for] their iniquity. And I will put an end to [the] pride of [the] arrogant, and I will bring [the] haughtiness of tyrants low. read more.
I will make humanity more rare than gold and humankind more than the gold of Ophir. Therefore I will make [the] heavens tremble, and the earth will quake from its place because of the wrath of Yahweh of hosts, and in the day his anger burns.

And Yahweh roars from Zion; from Jerusalem he utters his voice, and [the] heavens and [the] earth shake. But Yahweh [is] a refuge for his people, and a protection for the children of Israel.

"But in those days, after that tribulation, 'the sun will be darkened and the moon will not give its light, and the stars will be falling from heaven, and the powers in the heavens will be shaken.'

"And there will be signs in the sun and moon and stars, and on the earth distress of nations in perplexity from the noise of the sea and [its] surging, people fainting from fear and expectation of what is coming on the inhabited earth, for the powers of the heavens will be shaken.

But you have come to Mount Zion, and to the city of the living God, to the heavenly Jerusalem, and to tens of thousands of angels, to the festal gathering and assembly of the firstborn who are enrolled in heaven, and to God the judge of all, and to the spirits of righteous [people] made perfect, and to Jesus, the mediator of a new covenant, and {to the sprinkled blood} that speaks better than Abel's [does]. read more.
Watch out that you do not refuse the one who is speaking! For if those did not escape [when they] refused the one who warned [them] on earth, much less [will] we [escape], [if we] reject the [one who warns] from heaven, whose voice shook the earth at that time, but now he has promised, saying, "Yet once [more] I will shake not only the earth but also heaven." Now the [phrase] "yet once [more]" indicates the removal of what is shaken, namely, things that have been created, in order that the things that are not shaken may remain.


Why are you {in despair}, O my soul? And why are you disturbed within me? Hope in God, because I shall again praise him, {my salvation} and my God.




Blessed [is the one] whose help [is] the God of Jacob, whose hope [is] on Yahweh [as] his God,

And Yahweh roars from Zion; from Jerusalem he utters his voice, and [the] heavens and [the] earth shake. But Yahweh [is] a refuge for his people, and a protection for the children of Israel.




And the word of Yahweh {came} to me, {saying}, "Son of man, set your face toward Gog of the land of Magog, the head leader of Meshech and Tubal, and prophesy against him. And you must say, 'Thus says the Lord Yahweh: "Look! I [am] against you, Gog, the head leader of Meshach and Tubal, read more.
and I will turn you around, and I will place hooks in your cheeks, and I will bring you out and all of your horses and horsemen {fully armed}, all of them, great crowd, holding shield, and small shield, [and] holding swords, all of them. Persia, Cush, and Put [are] with them, all of them, with small shield and helmet. Gomer and all of its troops, Beth Togarmah, the remote areas of the north, and with all of its troops and many peoples with them. Be ready, and prepare {yourselves}, you and all of your assembly, the assembling around you, and you must be for them as a guard. After many days you will be mustered; {in the last years} you will come to a restored land from [the] sword, gathered from many peoples on the mountains of Israel which were as {permanent ruins} [but] from peoples it was brought out, and they will dwell {in safety}, all of them. And you will advance like a storm; you will come, [and] you will be like a cloud {covering} the land, and all of your troops and many nations [along] with you." " 'Thus says the Lord Yahweh: "{And then} on that day, things will come up on your mind, and you will devise evil plans. And you will say, 'I will go up against a land of open country; I will come [to] the [people] being at rest {in safety}, all of them dwelling without a wall and crossbars and {without doors}, to loot loot, and to plunder plunder, {to assail} inhabited ruins and people gathered together from [various] peoples [and who are] acquiring livestock and goods [and] dwelling at the center of the world. Sheba and Dedan and traders of Tarshish and all its strong lions, they [will] ask you, 'To loot loot are you coming? To plunder plunder [have] you summoned your assembly, to take away silver and gold, to take livestock and goods, to loot great amounts of loot?" ' "Therefore prophesy, son of man, and you must say to Gog, 'Thus says the Lord Yahweh: "Will you not realize on that day when my people Israel are dwelling {in safety}, and [so] you will come from your place, from [the] remote areas of [the] north, you and many people with you, {horsemen} all of them, a great crowd and a vast army, and you will advance against my people Israel like a cloud {covering} the land; it will be in the last days, and I will bring you against my land, so that the nations know me, {when I show myself holy through you} before their eyes, O Gog!" ' "Thus says the Lord Yahweh, '[Are] you he of whom I spoke in former days by the hand of my servants the prophets of Israel [who] were prophesying in those days for years [that I would] bring you against them? And [so] then in that day, on the day of the coming of God against the land of Israel,' {declares} the Lord Yahweh, 'my rage will come up in my anger. And in my passion, [in] the fire of my wrath, I spoke [that] {certainly} on that day great earthquake will be on the land of Israel. And the fish of the sea and the birds of the heaven and the animals of the field and all of the creeping things that creep on the earth and all of the humans who [are] on the surface of the earth will shake {at my presence}; and the mountains will be demolished, and the steep mountain sides will fall, and every wall on the earth will fall. And I will call against him in all of my mountains a sword,' {declares} the Lord Yahweh, '[And] [the] sword of each [person] will be against his brother. And I will execute justice with him with a plague and with blood and {torrents of rain}, and hailstones; fire and sulfur I will cause to fall on him and on his troops and on many peoples who [are] with him. And [so] I will exalt myself, and I will show myself holy, and I will make myself known before [the] eyes of many nations, and they will know that I [am] Yahweh.'"

"And you, son of man, prophesy against Gog, and you must say, 'Thus says the Lord Yahweh: "Look! I [am] against you Gog, the head leader of Meshech and Tubal, and I will turn you around, and I will drag you along, and I will bring you up from [the] remote areas of [the] north, and I will bring you against the mountains of Israel, and I will strike your bow from {your left hand}, and your arrows from {your right hand} I will cause to fall. read more.
On the mountains of Israel you will fall, you and all of your troops, and [the] peoples who [are] with you, to birds of prey, birds of every wing, and animals of the field I will give you as food. On the surface of the field you will fall, for {I myself} have spoken," {declares} the Lord Yahweh. "And I will send fire against Magog and among [the people] inhabiting the coastlands {in safety}, and they will know that I [am] Yahweh. And {my holy name} I will make known in the midst of my people Israel, and I will not let the name of my holiness be profaned anymore, and the nations will know that I [am] Yahweh, [the] holy [one] in Israel. Look! [it is] coming, and it will happen," {declares} the Lord Yahweh. "It is the day {about which I have spoken}. "?"And the inhabitants of the towns of Israel will go out, and they will set ablaze, and they will kindle a fire with a weapon and a small shield and a shield, [with] a bow and with arrows, and with {hand clubs} and with spears, and [so] they will light a fire with them, {a fire lasting seven years}. And they will not carry trees from the field, and they will not chop wood from the forests, for with the weapons they will light a fire; and they will plunder [those] plundering them, and they will plunder [those] plundering them," ' {declares} the Lord Yahweh. " '"{And then} on that day I will give to Gog {a grave there} in Israel, The Valley of the Travelers, east of the sea, and it {will block} the travelers and Gog and all of his hordes they will bury there, and they will call [it] the Valley of {Hamon-Gog}. And the house of Israel will bury them for seven months to cleanse the land. All of the people of the land will bury them, and it will be an honor for them [on] the day when I appear," ' {declares} the Lord Yahweh. ?"And they will set apart {men to continually} go through the land burying the travelers, the ones left over on [the] surface of the land to cleanse it; {for the whole of} seven months they will explore [it]. And the ones going through, they will go through within the land, and if [anyone] sees [the] bones of person, [then] he will build beside it a sign [to remain] until the buriers have buried him in the Valley of Hamon-Gog. And furthermore [the] name of [the] city [there] [is] Hamonah, and [thus] they will cleanse the land." ' "And you, son of man, thus says the Lord Yahweh: 'Say to {all kinds of birds and animals of the field}, "Be gathered, come be gathered {from everywhere} to my sacrifice that I [am] sacrificing for you, a great sacrifice on the mountains of Israel, and you will eat flesh, and you will drink blood. Flesh of warriors you will eat, and the blood of leaders of the land you will drink; rams, young rams and goats, bulls, [and] the fattened animals of Bashan--all of them! And you will eat fat {until you are satiated}, and you will drink blood {until you are drunk} from my sacrifice that I sacrifice for you, and you will be satisfied at my table [with] horse and horsemen and warriors and every man of war," ' {declares} the Lord Yahweh. "And I will display my glory among the nations, and all of the nations will see my judgment that I have executed and my hand that I have laid upon them. "And the house of Israel will know that I [am] Yahweh their God from that day and beyond, and the nations will know that because of their guilt the house of Israel went into exile, {because} they acted unfaithfully against me, and I hid my face from them, and I gave them into the hand of their foes, and they fell by the sword, all of them. According to their uncleanness and according to their transgression I dealt with them, and I hid my face from them.

For look! In those days, and in that time, when I will return the fortunes of Judah and Jerusalem, I will gather all the nations, and I will bring them down to the valley of Jehoshaphat, and I will argue {a case against them} there concerning my people and my inheritance Israel whom they have scattered among the nations, and my land [that] they have divided. For my people they cast lots, and {they traded} the male child for the prostitute, and the female child they sold for wine and they drank [it]. read more.
What [are] you to me, Tyre and Sidon, and all of the regions of Philistia? Are you repaying to me what is deserved? If you [are] recompensing me, I will return swiftly [and] quickly what you deserve on your head! For you have taken my silver and my gold, and my beautiful treasures you have carried into your temples. And the sons of Judah and Jerusalem you sold to the sons of the Greeks, in order to remove them from their border. Look! I [am] rousing them from the place where you have sold them, and I will return what you deserve on your head! I will sell your sons and your daughters into the hand of the children of Judah, and they will sell them to [the] Sabeans and to a nation far [away], for Yahweh has spoken. Proclaim this among the nations: {Prepare for war}! Stir up the mighty warriors; let them approach and come up; [let] all the men of war approach. Beat your cutting tools of iron into swords and your pruning hooks into spears; let the weakling say, 'I am a mighty warrior!' Hurry and come, all the nations, from all around, and gather [yourselves] there. Bring down your mighty warriors, O Yahweh! Let the nations be roused and let them come up to the valley of Jehoshaphat, for there I will sit to judge all the nations from all around. Send forth [the] sickle, for the harvest is ripe! Go tread, for [the] winepress is full! The vats overflow, because their evil [is] great! Commotion, commotion in the valley of decision! For the day of Yahweh [is] near in the valley of decision! [The] sun and [the] moon grow dark, and [the] stars {have withheld} their splendor. And Yahweh roars from Zion; from Jerusalem he utters his voice, and [the] heavens and [the] earth shake. But Yahweh [is] a refuge for his people, and a protection for the children of Israel.

An oracle. The word of Yahweh concerning Israel. "{Thus declares} Yahweh, who stretches out [the] heavens, founds [the] earth, and forms the spirit of humankind in its midst: 'Look, I [am] going to make Jerusalem a cup of reeling for all the surrounding nations; it will also be against Judah in the siege against Jerusalem. {And then} on that day I will make Jerusalem a stone weight for all the peoples. All those lifting it up will grievously hurt themselves, and all the nations of the earth will assemble against it. read more.
On that day,' {declares} Yahweh, 'I will strike every horse with confusion, and the one riding it with madness; but over the house of Judah {I will keep my eyes open}, and I will strike every horse of the peoples with blindness. And the clans of Judah will say {to themselves}, "The inhabitants of Jerusalem are a strength to us, through Yahweh of hosts, their God." " 'On that day I will make the clans of Judah like a pan of fire among [sticks of] wood, and like a torch of fire among stalks of grain, and they will devour to [the] right and to [the] left all the surrounding peoples, and Jerusalem will be inhabited again [in] its place, in Jerusalem. And Yahweh will save the tents of Judah first, so that the glory of the house of David and the glory of the inhabitants of Jerusalem may not be exalted over Judah. On that day Yahweh will put a shield around the inhabitants of Jerusalem, and the one who stumbles among them on that day will be like David, and the house of David [will be] like God, like the angel of Yahweh, {before them}. {And then} on that day I will seek to destroy all the nations coming against Jerusalem. " 'I will pour on the house of David and on the inhabitants of Jerusalem a spirit of grace and supplication, and they will look to me whom they pierced, and they shall mourn over him, as one wails over an only child, and they will grieve bitterly over him as [one] grieves bitterly over a firstborn.

Look! A day [is] coming for Yahweh, when your plunder will be divided in your midst. I will gather all the nations against Jerusalem to battle, and the city will be captured, and they will loot the houses, and the women will be raped; half of the city will go into exile, but the remainder of the people will not be cut off from the city. Then Yahweh will go forth and fight against those nations, like {when he fights} on a day of battle. read more.
On that day his feet will stand on {the Mount of Olives}, which faces Jerusalem on [the] east; and {the Mount of Olives} will be split {in half}, from east to west, [by] a very great valley; and half of the mountain will withdraw toward the north, and the other half toward the south. And you will flee [by] the valley of my mountains, because the valley of [the] mountains will reach to Azal, and you will flee like you fled from the earthquake in the days of King Uzziah of Judah. And Yahweh my God will come, [and] all [the] holy ones with him. {And then} on that day there will not be light, the precious things will congeal. There shall be continuous day--it is known to Yahweh--not day and not night; and at evening time there will be light. {And then} on that day, living waters will flow out from Jerusalem, half of them to the eastern sea, and the other half to the western sea; it will happen [both] in the summer and in the winter. And Yahweh will be king over all the earth; on that day Yahweh will be one and his name one. All the land will be transformed into a desert plateau from Geba to Rimmon south of Jerusalem. But it will rise up high and it will stay in its place from the Gate of Benjamin to the place of [the] former gate, up to the Corner Gate and from the Tower of Hananel to the king's winepresses. And they will dwell in it, and {there will be no more ban imposed}, and Jerusalem will dwell in security. And this will be the plague [with] which Yahweh will strike all the peoples that fight against Jerusalem: their flesh will rot while they [are] standing on their feet; their eyes will rot in their sockets, and their tongues will rot in their mouths. {And then} on that day a great panic from Yahweh will fall on them, and {they will seize one another's hand}, and the hand of the one will be raised against the hand of {another}.

And when he approached [and] saw the city, he wept over it, saying, "If you had known on this day--even you--the things [that make] for peace! But now they are hidden from your eyes. For days will come upon you and your enemies will put up an embankment against you, and will surround you and press you hard from all directions. read more.

"But when you see Jerusalem surrounded by armies, then know that its desolation has come near. Then those in Judea must flee to the mountains, and those {inside it} must depart, and those in the fields must not enter into it, because these are days of vengeance, [so that] all the things that are written can be fulfilled. read more.
Woe to those {who are pregnant} and to those who are nursing [their babies] in those days! For there will be great distress on the earth and wrath against this people, and they will fall by the edge of the sword, and will be led captive into all the nations, and Jerusalem will be trampled down by the Gentiles until the times of the Gentiles are fulfilled.

And the sixth poured out his bowl on the great river Euphrates, and its water was dried up, in order that the way would be prepared for the kings from {the east}. And I saw coming out of the mouth of the dragon and out of the mouth of the beast and out of the mouth of the false prophet three unclean spirits like frogs. For they are the spirits of demons performing signs that go out to the kings of the whole inhabited world, to gather them for the battle of the great day of God the All-Powerful. read more.
(Behold, I am coming like a thief. Blessed [is] the one who is on the alert and who keeps his clothing, so that he does not walk around naked and they see his shamefulness!) And he gathered them to the place called in Hebrew Armageddon. And the seventh poured out his bowl on the air, and a loud voice came out of the temple, from the throne, saying, "It is done!" And there were lightnings and sounds and thunders, and there was a great earthquake, as has not happened from the [time] humanity has been on the earth--so great in this way [was] the earthquake. And the great city was [split] into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell. And Babylon the great was remembered before God, to give her the cup of the wine of his furious wrath. And every island fled, and mountains were not found. And large hailstones, weighing about a hundred pounds, came down from the sky upon people, and the people blasphemed God because of the plague of hail, because the plague of it was very great.

And when the thousand years are completed, Satan will be released from his prison and he will go out to deceive the nations [that are] at the four corners of the earth, Gog and Magog, to assemble them for battle, {whose number} [is] like the sand of the sea. And they went up on the broad plain of the earth and surrounded the fortified camp of the saints and the beloved city, and fire came down from heaven and consumed them. read more.
And the devil who deceived them was thrown into the lake of fire and sulphur, where the beast and the false prophet also [are], and they will be tormented day and night {forever and ever}.


And {there will not be any longer} painful thorn and a sharp thornbush for the house of Israel from {anywhere around them} [from those] {who are despising them}, and they will know that I [am] the Lord Yahweh." '" Thus says the Lord Yahweh: "When I gather the house of Israel from the peoples to which they were scattered [about] in them, and I show myself holy in them before the eyes of the nations, then they will live on their soil, which I gave to my servant Jacob. And they will live on it in safety, and they will build houses, and they will plant vineyards, and they will live in safety when I execute my judgments on all {those who despise them from all around them}, and [then] they will know that I [am] Yahweh their God."

Thus says the Lord Yahweh: "Look! I will lift my hand up to [the] nations, and I will raise my signal to [the] peoples, and they shall bring your sons in [their] bosom, and your daughters shall be carried on [their] shoulders.

Then you will know that I [am] Yahweh; those who await me shall not be ashamed. Can war-booty be taken from [the] mighty? or can a captive of a righteous [person] be rescued? read more.
But thus says Yahweh: "Indeed a captive of [the] mighty shall be taken, and [the] war-booty [of] [the] tyrant shall be rescued, for I myself will dispute [with] your opponent, and I myself will save your children. And I will feed your oppressors their [own] flesh, and they shall be drunk [with] their blood as [with] wine.
