A Cruel Nation from the North

22 This is what the Lord says:

Look, an army is coming from a northern land;(A)
a great nation will be awakened
from the remote regions of the earth.(B)
23 They grasp bow and javelin.
They are cruel and show no mercy.(C)
Their voice roars like the sea,(D)

24 We have heard about it,
and we are discouraged.[a]
Distress has seized us—
pain like a woman in(E) labor.(F)
