He sent the ark of his might into captivity, his splendour into the hands of the enemy.
And gave up His strength to captivity And His glory into the hand of the adversary.
He allowed the Ark of his might to be captured; he surrendered his glory into enemy hands.
He let his pride and joy go to the dogs, turned his back on the pride of his life.
And he let his strength be taken prisoner, and gave his glory into the hands of his hater.
and delivered his power to captivity, his glory to the hand of the foe.
And delivered His strength into captivity, And His glory into the enemy’s hand.
