The Coming Judgment of Nineveh

Woe to this city, contaminated with shed blood,

all full of lies and robberies—
        it is[a] never without victims!
The crack of whips
    and the clamor of wheels!
The galloping horses
    and the bounding chariots!
The cavalry attacks—
    the flashing sword
        and the glittering spear!
Many are the slain—
    so many casualties!—
No end to bodies,
    and the soldiers[b] trip over the corpses.
