Deuteronomy 32:37-42 The Message (MSG)

36-38 Yes, God will judge his people,
        but oh how compassionately he’ll do it.
    When he sees their weakened plight
        and there is no one left, slave or free,
    He’ll say, “So where are their gods,
        the rock in which they sought refuge,
    The gods who feasted on the fat of their sacrifices
        and drank the wine of their drink-offerings?
    Let them show their stuff and help you,
        let them give you a hand!

39-42 “Do you see it now? Do you see that I’m the one?
        Do you see that there’s no other god beside me?
    I bring death and I give life, I wound and I heal—
        there is no getting away from or around me!
    I raise my hand in solemn oath;
        I say, ‘I’m always around. By that very life I promise:
    When I sharpen my lightning sword
        and execute judgment,
    I take vengeance on my enemies
        and pay back those who hate me.
    I’ll make my arrows drunk with blood,
        my sword will gorge itself on flesh,
    Feasting on slain and captive alike,
        the proud and vain enemy corpses.’”
