Deuteronomy 32:40-42 Revised Standard Version (RSV)
40 For I lift up my hand to heaven,
and swear, As I live for ever,
41 if I whet my glittering sword,
and my hand takes hold on judgment,
I will take vengeance on my adversaries,
and will requite those who hate me.
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.’
