After some time, when he returned to get her, he left the road to see the lion’s carcass, and there was a swarm of bees with honey in the carcass.
Then the Amorites who lived there came out against you and chased you like a swarm of bees. They routed you from Seir as far as Hormah.
They surrounded me like bees;
they were extinguished like a fire among thorns;
in the name of Yahweh I destroyed them.
On that day
the Lord will whistle to the fly
that is at the farthest streams of the Nile
and to the bee that is in the land of Assyria.
I will send the hornet in front of you, and it will drive the Hivites, Canaanites, and Hittites away from you.
The Lord your God will also send the hornet against them until all the survivors and those hiding from you perish.
I sent the hornet ahead of you, and it drove out the two Amorite kings before you. It was not by your sword or bow.
