For calamity, 1 there is derision (according to the ideas of the fortunate 2 ) – a fate 3 for those whose feet slip!
Out of its mouth go flames, 1 sparks of fire shoot forth!
The chariots 1 race madly 2 through the streets, they rush back and forth 3 in the broad plazas; they look 4 like lightning bolts, 5 they dash here and there 6 like flashes of lightning. 7
Samson went and captured three hundred jackals 1 and got some torches. He tied the jackals in pairs by their tails and then tied a torch to each pair. 2
When the sun had gone down and it was dark, a smoking firepot with a flaming torch 1 passed between the animal parts. 2
All the people were seeing 1 the thundering and the lightning, and heard 2 the sound of the horn, and saw 3 the mountain smoking – and when 4 the people saw it they trembled with fear 5 and kept their distance. 6
He divided the three hundred men into three units. 1 He gave them all trumpets and empty jars with torches inside them. 2
All three units blew their trumpets and broke their jars. They held the torches in their left hand and the trumpets in their right. 1 Then they yelled, “A sword for the Lord and for Gideon!”
He lit the torches 1 and set the jackals loose in the Philistines’ standing grain. He burned up the grain heaps and the standing grain, as well as the vineyards and olive groves.
“For the sake of Zion I will not be silent; for the sake of Jerusalem 1 I will not be quiet, until her vindication shines brightly 2 and her deliverance burns like a torch.”
In the middle 1 of the living beings was something like 2 burning coals of fire 3 or like torches. It moved back and forth among the living beings. It was bright, and lightning was flashing out of the fire.
His body resembled yellow jasper, 1 and his face had an appearance like lightning. His eyes were like blazing torches; 2 his arms and feet had the gleam of polished bronze. His voice 3 thundered forth like the sound of a large crowd.
On that day 1 I will make the leaders of Judah like an igniter 2 among sticks and a burning torch among sheaves, and they will burn up all the surrounding nations right and left. Then the people of Jerusalem will settle once more in their place, the city of Jerusalem.
