But God will shoot at them. With an arrow they shall suddenly be wounded. So they shall be made to stumble, their own tongue being against them. All who see them shall wag the head. And all men shall fear. And they shall declare the work of God, and shall wisely consider of his doing.

I have cut off nations. Their battlements are desolate. I have made their streets waste, so that none passes by. Their cities are destroyed, so that there is no man, so that there is no inhabitant. I said, Only fear thou me. Receive correction, so her dwelling shall not be cut off, [according to] all that I have appointed concerning her. But they rose early and corrupted all their doings.

However with most of them God was not well pleased, for they were strewn in the wilderness. But these things became our examples, for us not to be men who lust for evil things as those also lusted. Neither become ye idolaters as some of them, as it is written, The people sat down to eat and drink, and rose up to revel. read more.
Nor should we fornicate as some of them fornicated, and three thousand fell in one day. Nor should we challenge the Christ as some of them also challenged, and were destroyed by the serpents. And ye should not grumble as some of them grumbled, and were destroyed by the destroyer. Now all these things happened to those men for examples, and they were written for our admonition, to whom the ends of the ages came.

and he condemned the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah to destruction, being reduced to ashes, having made an example of men who were going to be irreverent,


He has also prepared for him the instruments of death. He makes his arrows fiery.

For thou will make them turn their back. Thou will make ready with thy bowstrings against their face.

when I shall send upon them the evil arrows of famine that are for destruction, which I will send to destroy you. And I will increase the famine upon you, and will break your staff of bread.

I will heap evils upon them. I will spend my arrows upon them, [to be] wasted with hunger, and devoured with burning heat and bitter destruction. And I will send upon them the teeth of beasts, with the poison of crawling things of the dust. Outside the sword shall bereave, and in the chambers terror, [to] both young man and virgin, the suckling with the man of gray hairs. read more.
I said, I would scatter them afar, I would make the remembrance of them to cease from among men, were it not that I feared the provocation of the enemy, lest their adversaries should judge amiss, lest they should say, Our hand is exalted, and LORD has not done all this. For they are a nation void of counsel, and there is no understanding in them. Oh that they were wise, that they understood this, that they would consider their latter end! How should one chase a thousand, and two put ten thousand to flight unless their Rock had sold them, and LORD had delivered them up? For their rock is not as our Rock, even our enemies themselves being judges. For their vine is of the vine of Sodom, and of the fields of Gomorrah. Their grapes are grapes of gall, their clusters are bitter. Their wine is the poison of serpents, and the cruel venom of asps. Is not this laid up in store with me, sealed up among my treasures? Vengeance is mine, and recompense at the time when their foot shall slide. For the day of their calamity is at hand, and the things that are to come upon them shall make haste. For LORD will judge his people, and regrets for his servants, when he sees that [their] power is gone, and there is none [remaining], shut up or left at large. And he will say, Where are their gods, the rock in which they took refuge, which ate the fat of their sacrifices, [and] drank the wine of their drink-offering? Let them rise up and help you, let them be your protection. See now that I, even I, am he, and there is no god with me. I kill, and I make alive. I wound, and I heal. And there is none that can deliver out of my hand. For I lift up my hand to heaven, and say, As I live forever, if I whet my glittering sword, and my hand takes hold on judgment, I will render vengeance to my adversaries, and will recompense those who hate me. I will make my arrows drunk with blood, and my sword shall devour flesh, with the blood of the slain and the captives, from the head of the leaders of the enemy.

But God will shoot at them. With an arrow they shall suddenly be wounded.



But God will shoot at them. With an arrow they shall suddenly be wounded.



Let destruction come upon him unawares, and let his net that he has hid catch himself. Let him fall in it with destruction.
