4 to avoid squatting among the captives or falling among the slain? After all this, his anger is not spent. No, his hand is still raised!
6 I was sending him against a godless nation, commissioning him against the people who enraged me, to pillage and plunder at will and trample on them like the mud in the streets.
7 But this was not his intention nor did his heart plan it so, for he dreamed of putting an end to them, of liquidating nations without number!
