    Woe - misfortune/bad things; archaic, and chiefly used in idiomatic expressions like 'weal and woe' [='goodness and badness'], and 'woe betide' - a mild curse or warning, as in 'woe betide anyone who goes there'.

    cometh - also archaic, = comes (i.e. 3rd pers. sing. present tense ending)

    deity - god
