41 Look, a people is coming from the north;
    a mighty nation and many kings
    are stirring from the farthest parts of the earth.
42 They wield bow and spear,
    they are cruel and have no mercy.
The sound of them is like the roaring sea;
    they ride upon horses,
set in array as a warrior for battle,

    and his hands fell helpless;
anguish seized him,
    pain like that of a woman in labor.

to make the cities of Judah a desolation,
    a lair of jackals.

    a nation from far away, O house of Israel,
says the Lord.
It is an enduring nation,
    it is an ancient nation,
a nation whose language you do not know,
    nor can you understand what they say.
