Isaiah 13:3-5

3I myself have commanded my consecrated ones,
and have summoned my mighty men to execute my anger,
my proudly exulting ones.
Or those who exult in my majesty

4 The sound b  of a tumult is on the mountains
as of a great multitude!
The sound of an uproar of kingdoms,
of nations gathering together!
c  The  Lord of hosts is mustering
a host for battle.
5 d  They come from a distant land,
from the end of the heavens,
the  Lord and the weapons of his indignation,
to destroy the whole land.
Or earth; also verse 9

Isaiah 21:2

2A stern vision is told to me;
f  the traitor betrays,
and the destroyer destroys.
Go up, O g  Elam;
lay siege, O h  Media;
all the i  sighing she has caused
I bring to an end.

Isaiah 41:25

25 j  I stirred up one from the north, and he has come,
k  from the rising of the sun, l  and he shall call upon my name;
he shall trample on rulers as on mortar,
as the potter treads clay.

11 n  Sharpen the arrows!
