Page 184 - Was never; arms on armour clashing bray'd Horrible discord, and the madding wheels Of brazen chariots rag'd ; dire was the noise Of conflict ; over head the dismal hiss Of fiery darts in flaming volleys flew, And flying vaulted either host with fire.
Page 125 - LORD looked forth upon the host of the Egyptians through the pillar of fire and of cloud, and discomfited the host of the Egyptians.
