- 9 "Yet it was I who destroyed the Amorite before * them, Though his height was like the height of cedars And he was strong as the oaks; I even destroyed his fruit above * and his root below *. 10 "It was I who brought you up from the land of Egypt, And I led you in the wilderness forty years That you might take possession of the land of the Amorite. 11 "Then I raised up some of your sons to be prophets And some of your young men to be Nazirites. Is this not so, O sons of Israel?" declares the LORD. 12 "But you made the Nazirites drink wine, And you commanded the prophets saying, 'You shall not prophesy!' 13 "Behold, I am weighted down beneath you As a wagon is weighted down when filled with sheaves. 14 "Flight will perish from the swift, And the stalwart will not strengthen his power, Nor the mighty man save his life. 15 "He who grasps the bow will not stand his ground, The swift of foot will not escape, Nor will he who rides the horse save his life. 16 "Even the bravest * among the warriors will flee naked in that day," declares the LORD.
