    and his waters toss themselves like the rivers.
He says, ‘I will rise up. I will cover the earth.
    I will destroy cities and its inhabitants.’

    Cush and Put, who handle the shield;
    and the Ludim, who handle and bend the bow.

    and will drink its fill of their blood;
    for the Lord, Yahweh of Armies, has a sacrifice in the north country by the river Euphrates.
