Wisdom 5:17
For his weapon, the Lord will take his zeal. He will arm creation itself for the fight against his foes.
Therefore shall they receive a kingdom of glory, and a crown of beauty at the hand of the Lord: for with his right hand he will cover them, and with his holy arm he will defend them.
He will go out into battle determined to defeat his enemies, and use the creation itself as a weapon.
He shall take his zeal for armor and arm creation to requite the enemy,
The Lord will take his zeal as his whole armor, and will arm all creation to repel his enemies;
The Lord will take his zeal as his whole armour, and will arm all creation to repel his enemies;
The Lord will take his zeal as his whole armour, and will arm all creation to repel his enemies;
The Lord will take his zeal as his whole armor, and will arm all creation to repel his enemies;
The Lord will take his zeal as his whole armor, and will arm all creation to repel his enemies;
The Lord will take his zeal as his whole armor, and will arm all creation to repel his enemies;
And his fervent love shall take armour, and he shall arm the creature to the vengeance of (his) enemies. [And the jealousy of him shall take armour, and arm creature to the venging of enemies.]
