Isaiah 5:25-30 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)
25 Therefore the wrath of the Lord blazes against his people,
he stretches out his hand to strike them;
The mountains quake,
their corpses shall be like refuse in the streets.
For all this, his wrath is not turned back,
his hand is still outstretched.
26 He will raise a signal to a far-off nation,
and whistle for it from the ends of the earth.
Then speedily and promptly they will come.
27 None among them is weary, none stumbles,
none will slumber, none will sleep.
None with waist belt loose,
none with sandal thong broken.
28 Their arrows are sharp,
and all their bows are bent,
The hooves of their horses like flint,
and their chariot wheels like the whirlwind.
29 They roar like the lion,
like young lions, they roar;
They growl and seize the prey,
they carry it off and none can rescue.
30 They will growl over it, on that day,
like the growling of the sea,
Look to the land—
darkness closing in,
the light dark with clouds!
