Psalm 7:12; Isaiah 27:1; Isaiah 34:5; Isaiah 66:16; Ezekiel 21:9–10

12  If a man1 does not repent, God2 will gwhet his sword;

he has hbent and ireadied his bow;

The Redemption of Israel

27 In that day the Lord with his hard and great and strong dsword will punish eLeviathan the fleeing serpent, eLeviathan the twisting serpent, and he will slay fthe dragon that is in the sea.

For my sword has drunk its fill in the heavens;

behold, it descends for judgment upon aEdom,

upon the people bI have devoted to destruction.

16  For wby fire xwill the Lord enter into judgment,

and by his sword, with all flesh;

and those slain by the Lord shall be many.

tSon of man, prophesy and say, Thus says the Lord, say:

iA sword, a sword is sharpened

and also polished,

10  jsharpened for slaughter,

jpolished to flash like lightning!

(Or kshall we rejoice? You have despised the rod, my son, lwith everything of wood.)1
