"I said, "I will scatter them, erasing their memory from the human race, if it weren't for dreading the taunting of their enemies otherwise, their adversary might misinterpret and say, "Our power is great. It isn't the LORD who made all of this happen."'" They are a nation devoid of purpose and without insight. O, that they were wise to understand this and consider their future! How can one person chase a thousand of them and two put a myriad to flight, unless their Rock delivers them and the LORD gives them up? For their rock isn't like our Rock, as even our enemies admit. Instead, their vine is from the vines of Sodom and the vineyards of Gomorrah. Their grapes are poisonous, their clusters bitter. Their wine is the venom of serpents, a poisonous cobra. "Is this not kept in reserve, sealed up with me in my treasury? To me belong vengeance and recompense. In due time their feet will slip, because their time of calamity is near and the things prepared for them draw near. For the LORD will vindicate his people and bring comfort to his servants, because he will observe that their power has waned, when neither prisoner nor free person remain. "He will say, "Where are their gods, the rock in which they took refuge? Who ate the fat of their offerings and drank the wine that was their drink offering? Let them rise and help you and be your hiding place!' "Look now! I AM, and there is no other god besides me. I myself cause death and I sustain life; I wound severely and I also heal; from my power no one can deliver. "I solemnly swear to heaven I say "As certainly as I'm alive and living forever, I'll whet my shining sword, with my hands in firm grasp of judgment. I'll show vengeance on my adversary and repay those who keep on hating me. 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.'
