The blast of the terrible ones is as a storm against the wall (Isa. 25:4)

The opening phrase is rendered by Phillips as "the breath of cruel men"; while the Revised Standard Version suggests, "the blast of the ruthless." The word "against" is not represented in the Hebrew; and in view of this, various scholars feel that at some time in the early history of the text a scribe mistakenly copied the word kir (wall) instead of the similiar form kor (cold). Hence Smith's rendering. "a storm in winter"; and that of Phillips, "a wintry blast."
