2 ||He that dasheth in pieces is come up before thy face:
As the excellency of Israel:
For gthe emptiers have emptied them out,
And hmarred their vine branches.
3 The shield of his mighty men is imade red,
And the fir trees shall be mterribly shaken.
They shall ojustle one against another in the broad ways:
†They shall seem like torches,
They shall orun like the lightnings.
5 He shall recount his ||worthies:
pThey shall stumble in their walk;
They shall make haste to the wall thereof,
And the †defence shall be prepared.
6 rThe gates of the rivers shall be opened,
And her maids shall lead her as with the voice of wdoves,
xTabering upon their breasts.
Yet athey shall flee away.
And kthe faces of them all gather blackness.
11 Where is the dwelling of lthe lions,
And strangled for his rlionesses,
And his dens with ravin.
13 tBehold, I am against thee, saith the Lord of hosts,
And uI will burn her chariots in the smoke,
And the sword shall devour lthy young lions:
And I will cut off sthy prey from the earth,
And the voice of vthy messengers shall no more be heard.
