Deuteronomy 32:42-44 English Standard Version Anglicised (ESVUK)

42 I will make my arrows drunk with blood,
    and my sword shall devour flesh—
with the blood of the slain and the captives,
    from the long-haired heads of the enemy.’
43 “Rejoice with him, O heavens;
    bow down to him, all gods,[a]
for he avenges the blood of his children[b]
    and takes vengeance on his adversaries.
He repays those who hate him[c]
    and cleanses[d] his people's land.”[e]

44 Moses came and recited all the words of this song in the hearing of the people, he and Joshua[f] the son of Nun.
