New International Version
4 They have the appearance of horses;(A)
they gallop along like cavalry.
5 With a noise like that of chariots(B)
they leap over the mountaintops,
like a crackling fire(C) consuming stubble,
like a mighty army drawn up for battle.
6 At the sight of them, nations are in anguish;(D)
every face turns pale.(E)
7 They charge like warriors;(F)
they scale walls like soldiers.
They all march in line,(G)
not swerving(H) from their course.
8 They do not jostle each other;
each marches straight ahead.
They plunge through defenses
without breaking ranks.
9 They rush upon the city;
they run along the wall.
They climb into the houses;(I)
like thieves they enter through the windows.(J)
