Nineveh’s Complete Ruin
3 Woe (judgment is coming) to the city of blood [guilty of murder and mayhem], completely full of lies and pillage;
Her prey never departs [alive].(A)
The noise of the [cracking of the] whip,
The noise of the rattling of the wheel,
And rumbling and bounding chariots [in the assault of Nineveh]!
Swords flashing, spears gleaming,
Many slain, a mass of corpses,
No end of corpses—
The horsemen stumble over the corpses!
