Burn it down, and salt the earth

I sent a fun little e-mail to good buddy of mine today. Here's a cute little clip:

I will destroy mine enemies before me.
I will plunder the wreckage of their homes and bodies to feed my inevitable victories.
I will salt the earth whence they stood, lest new enemies should grow from the foul soil.

Surely mine shall be a vengeful and righteous path.

Ezekiel 21-
I have set the point of the sword against all their gates, that their heart may faint, and their ruins be multiplied: ah! it is made bright, it is wrapped up for the slaughter.

Jeremiah 34-
: I will even give them into the hand of their enemies, and into the hand of them that seek their life: and their dead bodies shall be for meat unto the fowls of the heaven, and to the beasts of the earth.

Nahum 1-
He rebuketh the sea, and maketh it dry, and drieth up all the rivers...
5: The mountains quake at him, and the hills melt, and the earth is burned at his presence, yea, the world, and all that dwell therein.
6: Who can stand before his indignation? and who can abide in the fierceness of his anger? his fury is poured out like fire, and the rocks are thrown down by him.

Deuteronomy 29-
And that the whole land thereof is brimstone, and salt, and burning, that it is not sown, nor beareth, nor any grass groweth therein...
