32:26 “I said, ‘I want to cut them in pieces.49
I want to make people forget they ever existed.
32:27 But I fear the reaction50 of their enemies,
for51 their adversaries would misunderstand
and say, “Our power is great,52
and the Lord has not done all this!” ’
32:28 They are a nation devoid of wisdom,
and there is no understanding among them.
32:29 I wish that they were wise and could understand this,
and that they could comprehend what will happen to them.”
32:30 How can one man chase a thousand of them,53
and two pursue ten thousand;
unless their Rock had delivered them up,54
and the Lord had handed them over?
32:31 For our enemies’55 rock is not like our Rock,
as even our enemies concede.
32:32 For their vine is from the stock56 of Sodom,
and from the fields of Gomorrah.57
Their grapes contain venom,
their clusters of grapes are bitter.
32:33 Their wine is snakes’ poison,
the deadly venom of cobras.
32:34 “Is this not stored up with me?” says the Lord,58
“Is it not sealed up in my storehouses?
32:35 I will get revenge and pay them back
at the time their foot slips;
for the day of their disaster is near,
and the impending judgment59 is rushing upon them!”
32:36 The Lord will judge his people,
and will change his plans concerning60 his servants;
when he sees that their power has disappeared,
and that no one is left, whether confined or set free.
32:37 He will say, “Where are their gods,
the rock in whom they sought security,
32:38 who ate the best of their sacrifices,
and drank the wine of their drink offerings?
Let them rise and help you;
let them be your refuge!
