And how [b]fury has ceased!
“The Lord has broken the staff of the wicked,
The scepter of rulers
(D)Which used to strike the peoples in fury with unceasing strokes,
Which [c]subdued the nations in anger with unrestrained persecution.
“The whole earth is at rest and is quiet;
They (E)break forth into shouts of joy.
