make mine:
"I will heap mischiefs upon them; I will spend mine arrows upon them." {Deu 32:23} + "Thine arrows [are] sharp in the heart of the king's enemies; [whereby] the people fall under thee." {Psa 45:5} + "That thy foot may be dipped in the blood of [thine] enemies, [and] the tongue of thy dogs in the same." {Psa 68:23} + "The sword of the LORD is filled with blood, it is made fat with fatness, [and] with the blood of lambs and goats, with the fat of the kidneys of rams: for the LORD hath a sacrifice in Bozrah, and a great slaughter in the land of Idumea. ... For [it is] the day of the LORD'S vengeance, [and] the year of recompences for the controversy of Zion." {Isa 34:6-8} + "And it shall come to pass, when thou shalt shew this people all these words, and they shall say unto thee, Wherefore hath the LORD pronounced all this great evil against us? or what [is] our iniquity? or what [is] our sin that we have committed against the LORD our God?" {Jer 16:10} + "Therefore, [as] I live, saith the Lord GOD, I will prepare thee unto blood, and blood shall pursue thee: sith thou hast not hated blood, even blood shall pursue thee. ... And I will fill his mountains with his slain [men]: in thy hills, and in thy valleys, and in all thy rivers, shall they fall that are slain with the sword." {Ezk 35:6-8} + "And I will call for a sword against him throughout all my mountains, saith the Lord GOD: every man's sword shall be against his brother. ... And I will plead against him with pestilence and with blood; and I will rain upon him, and upon his bands, and upon the many people that [are] with him, an overflowing rain, and great hailstones, fire, and brimstone." {Ezk 38:21-22}
The word parôth, rendered revenges, a sense in which it never seems to be used, has rendered this passage very obscure. As the word paira signifies the hair of the head, both in Hebrew and Arabic, Mr. Parkhurst and others render mairosh parôth, "from the hairy head;" but to have this sense, the words should rather have been mipparôth rosh, according the Hebrew idiom. The word farôu, in Arabic, however, also denotes a prince or chief; and the words may be literally rendered, with the LXX, απο κεφαλης αρχοντων εχθρων, "from the head of the chiefs of the enemies." The hyperbaton, or transposition of words from their grammatical order, is very observable in this verse; the third member forming a continuation of the first, and the fourth of the second. "Wherefore hidest thou thy face, and holdest me for thine enemy?" {Job 13:24} + "All thy lovers have forgotten thee; they seek thee not; for I have wounded thee with the wound of an enemy, with the chastisement of a cruel one, for the multitude of thine iniquity; [because] thy sins were increased." {Jer 30:14} + "The Lord was as an enemy: he hath swallowed up Israel, he hath swallowed up all her palaces: he hath destroyed his strong holds, and hath increased in the daughter of Judah mourning and lamentation." {Lam 2:5}
