The Locusts—A Powerful Army

Drunks, wake up and cry!
    All of you who drink wine, cry
because your sweet wine is finished.
    You will not taste it again.
A powerful nation came to attack my land.
    Its soldiers were too many to count.
Its weapons were as sharp as a lion’s teeth
    and as powerful as a lion’s jaw.

    Its good vines withered and died.
It destroyed my fig tree,
    stripped off the bark and threw it away.
