||quia reddidit Dominus superbiam Iacob sicut superbiam Israhel quia vastatores dissipaverunt eos et propagines eorum corruperunt
For the Lord hath rendered the pride of Jacob, as the pride of Israel: because the spoilers have laid them waste, and have marred their vine branches.
||clypeus fortium eius ignitus viri exercitus in coccineis igneae habenae currus in die praeparationis eius et agitatores consopiti sunt
The shield of his mighty men is like fire, the men of the army are clad in scarlet, the reins of the chariot are flaming in the day of his preparation, and the drivers are stupified.

||diripite argentum diripite aurum et non est finis divitiarum ex omnibus vasis desiderabilibus
Take ye the spoil of the silver, take the spoil of the gold: for there is no end of the riches of all the precious furniture.
||dissipata et scissa et dilacerata et cor tabescens et dissolutio geniculorum et defectio in cunctis renibus et facies omnium sicut nigredo ollae
