11 The Lord will be awesome against them;
    (A)for he will famish all the gods of the earth,
and (B)to him shall bow down,
    each in its place,
    all (C)the lands of the nations.

12 (D)You also, O Cushites,
    shall be slain by my sword.

13 And he will stretch out his hand against the north
    (E)and destroy Assyria,
and he (F)will make Nineveh a desolation,
    a dry waste like the desert.
