    like rivers whose waters surge.
He said, I will rise, I will cover the earth,
    I will destroy cities and their inhabitants.

    men of Lud, skilled in handling the bow.

    and drink its fill of their blood.
For the Lord God of hosts holds a sacrifice
    in the north country by the river Euphra′tes.
