You will not be afraid of the terror of night,
Nor of the arrow that flies by day,
Sharp arrows of the warrior,
With the burning coals of the broom tree.
Flash lightning and scatter my enemies;
Send out Your arrows and confuse and embarrass and frustrate them.
Like a club and a sword and a piercing arrow
Is a man who testifies falsely against his neighbor (acquaintance).
He has bent His bow and set me as a mark for the arrow. He has caused the arrows of His quiver to enter into my heart [the seat of my affections and desires].
When I send against them the deadly arrows of hunger which were for the destruction of those whom I will send to destroy you, then I will increase the famine upon you and break your staff of bread.
The sun and moon stood in their places [as before Joshua];
They went away at the light of Your [swift] arrows,
At the radiance and gleam of Your glittering spear.
