40 “I make this solemn promise:
    Just as I live forever,
41 I will take revenge
    on my hateful enemies.
I will sharpen my sword
and let it flash
    like lightning.
42 My arrows will get drunk
    on enemy blood;
my sword will taste the flesh
    and the blood
of the enemy.
It will kill prisoners,
and cut off the heads
    of their leaders.”[a]
