For, lo, I raise up the Chaldeans, that
bitter and hasty nation, which shall march through the breadth of the land, to possess the dwellingplaces that are
terrible and dreadful: their judgment and their dignity shall proceed of themselves.
Their horses also are swifter than the leopards, and are more fierce than the evening wolves: and their horsemen shall spread themselves, and their horsemen shall come from far; they shall fly as the eagle that
hasteth to eat.
They shall come all for violence: their faces shall sup up as
the east wind, and they shall gather the captivity as the sand.
And they shall scoff at the kings, and the princes shall be a scorn unto them: they shall deride every strong hold; for they shall heap dust, and take it.
