While Samuel was sacrificing the burnt offering, the Philistines drew near to engage Israel in battle. But that day the LORD thundered with loud thunder against the Philistines and threw them into such a panic that they were routed before the Israelites.
He has prepared his deadly weapons; he makes ready his flaming arrows.
On the wicked he will rain fiery coals and burning sulfur; a scorching wind will be their lot.
Let your sharp arrows pierce the hearts of the king's enemies; let the nations fall beneath your feet.
Rebuke the beast among the reeds, the herd of bulls among the calves of the nations. Humbled, may the beast bring bars of silver. Scatter the nations who delight in war.
