Destroyers have come
on all the bare heights in the wilderness,
for the sword of Yahweh devours
from the one end of the land even to the other end of the land:
no flesh has peace. Bible see other translations

“the sword of Yahweh devours.” A beautiful and powerful personification. God’s sword is described as if it was a person with a great appetite, eating the people of the land.
