14 (A)The peoples have heard, they tremble;
Anguish has gripped the inhabitants of Philistia.
15 Then the (B)chiefs of Edom were terrified;
(C)The leaders of Moab, trembling grips them;
(D)All the inhabitants of Canaan have despaired.
16 (E)Terror and dread fall upon them;
(F)By the greatness of Your arm they are motionless as stone,
Until Your people pass over, Lord,
Until the people pass over whom You (G)have purchased.
