Judgment; Sword of
Elam from grace.
For I will cause
Elam to be dismayed before their enemies, and before them that
seek their life: and I will bring evil upon them, even my fierce anger,
saith the LORD; and I will send the sword after them, till I
have consumed them:
There is Elam and all her multitude round about her grave, all
of them slain, fallen by the sword, which are gone down uncircumcised
into the nether parts of the earth, which caused their terror in the
land of the living; yet have they borne their shame with them that go
down to the pit.
Beside them calm scribes of the victors stood,
And careful note the butcher's name, and check
The list; and for each head a price they make.
Thus pitiless the sword of Elam gleams
And the best blood of Erech flows in streams.
