“Harness the horses,
And [a]mount the steeds,
And take your stand with helmets on!
(A)Polish the spears,
Put on the (B)scale-armor!
“Why have I seen it?
They are terrified,
They are (C)drawing back,
And their (D)mighty men are defeated
And have taken refuge in flight,
Without facing back;
[b](E)Terror is on every side!”
Declares the Lord.
Let not the (F)swift man flee,
Nor the mighty man escape;
In the north beside the river Euphrates
They have (G)stumbled and fallen.
