This is a huge verse. It figures.

Fire - light and energy.
Blood - life.
Swords - words.
Spears - deeds/actions.
This is a helpful road into what seems at first to be pretty harsh.

The Heathen are the Godless. They could be interpreted as the aspects of ourselves that resist the work. Through the work we are frequently brought face to face with obstructive aspects of self. These must be confronted and integrated (consumed) if balance is to be achieved.
Like the old saying goes, "the spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak."
I never could get very worked up over the flesh eating in this line. It always reminded me of Psalms 23:5. It always made sense to me that mine enemies were inner. It's just that I couldn't much sense of it past that back then.

There is a lot to process in this verse. It's nice to have a few footholds.
