Even the strongest cannot escape.

Jeremiah 46:10

46:10 But that day belongs to the Lord God who rules over all.

It is the day when he will pay back his enemies.

It will drink their blood until it is full!

For the Lord God who rules over all will offer them up as a sacrifice

in the land of the north by the Euphrates River.
