Context

37:23 Whom have you taunted and hurled insults at?

At whom have you shouted

and looked so arrogantly? 1 

At the Holy One of Israel! 2 

37:24 Through your messengers you taunted the sovereign master, 3 

‘With my many chariots I climbed up

the high mountains,

the slopes of Lebanon.

I cut down its tall cedars

and its best evergreens.

I invaded its most remote regions, 4 

its thickest woods.
