5:28 Their arrows are sharpened,
and all their bows are prepared. 1
The hooves of their horses are hard as flint, 2
and their chariot wheels are like a windstorm. 3
their princesses will nurse your children. 5
With their faces to the ground they will bow down to you
and they will lick the dirt on 6 your feet.
Then you will recognize that I am the Lord;
those who wait patiently for me are not put to shame.
