Deuteronomy 32:42-44 Common English Bible (CEB)

42 I’ll make my arrows drink much blood,
    while my sword devours flesh,
    the blood of the dead and captured,
        flowing from the heads of enemy generals.”[a]
43 Heavens:[b] Rejoice with God![c]
    All you gods: bow down to the Lord![d]
    Because he will avenge his children’s[e] blood;
        he will pay back his enemies;
        he will punish in kind those who hate him;[f]
        he will cleanse his people’s land.[g]

44 So Moses came and recited all the words of this poem in everyone’s hearing; Joshua,[h] Nun’s son, joined him.
