More Odd Sentences from Duolingo Dutch

I've been lazy, and mostly just maintaining everything golden on Duolingo, with very occasional forays into Babbel. Sentence of the day, courtesy Duolingo:

"Ik zou nooit over wapens zingen"

"He hath loosed the fateful lightning of His terrible swift sword"

ETA: Bonus, from Spanish Duolingo

"Tu oso bebe cerveza."

Your bear drinks beer. Sounds like a problem, honestly.
