Like the maniac who shoots fiery darts and deadly arrows
Like a sharp arrow from a warrior, along with fiery coals from juniper trees!
Sharpen the arrows, fill the quivers! The LORD has stirred up the spirit of the kings of the Medes he has decided to destroy Babylon. Indeed, it's the LORD's vengeance, vengeance for his Temple.
The LORD will appear over them his arrow will shoot like lightning. The Lord GOD will blow the trumpet, and go out with the southern windstorm.
who sharpen their tongues like swords, and aim their bitter words like arrows,
I'll make my arrows drunk with blood. My sword will devour flesh, along with the blood of the slain, and I'll take their enemy leaders captive.'
He prepares weapons of death for himself, he makes his arrows into fiery shafts.
I'll send arrows of severe famine in their direction, meant for destruction, which I'll shoot, intending to destroy them. I'll make you have more and more famines that will attack you, and I'll disrupt your source of food.
2 Kings 9:24
But Jehu drew his bow with all of his strength, shooting Joram between his shoulder blades. The arrow pierced his heart, and he collapsed in his chariot.
Your arrows are sharpened to penetrate the hearts of the king's enemies. People will fall under you.
Though he dodges an iron weapon, a bronze arrow will pierce him.
Their arrows are sharp, all their bows ready for action. Their horses' hooves seem like flint, and their chariot wheels spin like a whirlwind.
