Harness the horses;
mount the steeds;[a]
take your positions with helmets on!
Polish the lances;
put on armor!(A)
Why have I seen this?
They are terrified,
they are retreating,
their warriors are crushed,
they flee headlong,
they never look back,
terror is on every side!(B)
This is the Lord’s declaration.
The swift cannot flee,
and the warrior cannot escape!
In the north by the bank of the Euphrates River,
they stumble and fall.(C)
