They will bow down before you and plead with you, saying, 'Surely God is with you, and there is no other; there is no other god.'"

But this is what the LORD says: "Yes, captives will be taken from warriors, and plunder retrieved from the fierce; I will contend with those who contend with you, and your children I will save.
For you will spread out to the right and to the left; your descendants will dispossess nations and settle in their desolate cities.
