But their iniquities have come upon their bones Because of the terror of the mighty in the land of the living. Thou, therefore in the midst of the uncircumcised, shalt be overthrown. And shalt lie low with them who were thrust through by the sword. There, are Edom her kings and all her princes, Who have been delivered up in their might. With them who were thrust through by he sword, - They with the uncircumcised, shall lie low. Even with them who descend into the pit. There, are the princes of the-North lull of them, and all the Zidonians, Who have descended with them who were thrust through. By reason of the terror they caused, of their might, are they ashamed, So they have lain down uncircumcised.
