  at rest, that live securely, all of them living
  without walls and having no bars or gates,
           Ezekiel 38:10-12

  turn your hand against the waste places
  which are now inhabited, and against the

  beasts of the field, all the creeping things that

  pathways will collapse and every wall will fall to
  the ground.

  his troops, and on the many peoples who are with
