Deuteronomy 32:40-42 Easy-to-Read Version (ERV)

40 I raise my hand toward heaven and make this promise.
    As surely as I live forever, these things will happen!
41 I swear,
    I will sharpen my flashing sword.
I will use it to punish my enemies.
    I will give them the punishment they deserve.
42 My enemies will be killed and taken as prisoners.
    My arrows will be covered with their blood.
    My sword will cut off the heads of their soldiers.’

Deuteronomy 32:40-42 New International Version (NIV)

40 I lift my hand to heaven and solemnly swear:
    As surely as I live forever,
41 when I sharpen my flashing sword
    and my hand grasps it in judgment,
I will take vengeance on my adversaries
    and repay those who hate me.
42 I will make my arrows drunk with blood,
    while my sword devours flesh:
the blood of the slain and the captives,
    the heads of the enemy leaders.”
