Give us aid against the enemy, for human help is worthless.
"How can you say, 'We are warriors, men valiant in battle'?
But you have planted wickedness, you have reaped evil, you have eaten the fruit of deception. Because you have depended on your own strength and on your many warriors,
The swift will not escape, the strong will not muster their strength, and the warrior will not save his life.
