He has cut off in fierce anger
Every [a]horn of Israel;
(A)He has drawn back His right hand
From before the enemy.
(B)He has blazed against Jacob like a flaming fire
Devouring all around.

(C)Standing like an enemy, He has bent His bow;
With His right hand, like an adversary,
He has slain (D)all who were pleasing to His eye;
On the tent of the daughter of Zion,
He has poured out His fury like fire.

(E)The Lord was like an enemy.
He has swallowed up Israel,
He has swallowed up all her palaces;
(F)He has destroyed her strongholds,
And has increased mourning and lamentation
In the daughter of Judah.
