The locusts are like war horses (Joel 2:4-2:5)

“They have the appearance

Of horses.

They are

Like war horses.

They charge.

As with the rumbling

Of chariots,

They leap

On the tops

Of the mountains,

Like the crackling

Of a flame of fire,

Devouring the stubble.

They are

Like a powerful army

Drawn up for battle.”

This swarm of locusts had the appearance of charging war horses. They were like rumbling chariots leaping to the tops of the mountains. They were like a crackling flame in a fire devouring the grass stubble in front of it. They were like a powerful army ready for battle. These were the dangerous grasshoppers.
