Reading is great—but if you ever want to study, just tap a lightbulb
1aHE that dasheth in pieces is come up before thy face: 1keep the munition, watch the way, make thy loins strong, fortify thy power mightily.
21For the Lord hath turned away athe excellency of Jacob, as the excellency of Israel: for 2the emptiers have emptied them out, and marred their 3vine branches.
3The shield of his mighty men is made 1red, the valiant men areain scarlet: the chariots shall be with bflaming torches in the day of his preparation, and the fir trees shall be terribly shaken.
41The chariots shall rage in the streets, they shall justle one against another in the broad ways: athey shall seem like torches, they shall run like the lightnings.
51He shall recount his aworthies: they shall stumble in their walk; they shall make haste to the wall thereof, and the bdefence shall be prepared.
6The gates of the rivers shall be opened, and the palace shall be adissolved.
7And aHuzzab shall be bled away captive, she shall be brought up, and her maids shall lead her as with the voice of doves, 1tabering upon their breasts.
8But Nineveh isaof old 1like a pool of water: yet they shall flee away. 2Stand, stand, shall they cry; but none shall blook back.
91Take ye the spoil of silver, take the spoil of gold: afor there is none end of the store and glory out of all the bpleasant furniture.
101She is empty, and void, and waste: and the 2heart melteth, and the knees smite together, and much pain is in all loins, and the faces of them all gather blackness.
111Where is the dwelling of 2the lions, and the feedingplace of the young lions, where the lion, even the old lion, walked, and the lion's whelp, and none made them afraid?
12The 1lion did tear in pieces enough for his whelps, and strangled for his lionesses, and filled his holes with prey, and his dens with ravin.
13Behold, 1I am against thee, saith the Lord of hosts, and 2I will burn her chariots in the smoke, and the sword shall devour thy young lions: and I will cut off 3thy prey from the earth, and 4the voice of 5thy messengers shall no more be heard.
