Raise a banner(A) on a bare hilltop,
    shout to them;
beckon to them
    to enter the gates(B) of the nobles.
I have commanded those I prepared for battle;
    I have summoned my warriors(C) to carry out my wrath(D)
    those who rejoice(E) in my triumph.

Listen, a noise on the mountains,
    like that of a great multitude!(F)
Listen, an uproar(G) among the kingdoms,
    like nations massing together!
The Lord Almighty(H) is mustering(I)
    an army for war.
They come from faraway lands,
    from the ends of the heavens(J)
the Lord and the weapons(K) of his wrath(L)
    to destroy(M) the whole country.
