Raise up indignation, and pour out wrath. Take away the adversary, and crush the enemy.
Let him that escapeth be consumed by the rage of the fire: and let them perish that oppress thy people.
Crush the head of the princes of the enemies that say:
There is no other beside us.
Have mercy on thy people, upon whom thy name is invoked.
--Sirach 36:8, 10-11, 14
