King James Version
6 For, lo, I raise up the Chaldeans, that bitter and hasty nation, which shall march through the breadth of the land, to possess the dwellingplaces that are not their's.
7 They are terrible and dreadful: their judgment and their dignity shall proceed of themselves.
8 Their horses also are swifter than the leopards, and are more fierce than the evening wolves: and their horsemen shall spread themselves, and their horsemen shall come from far; they shall fly as the eagle that hasteth to eat.Read full chapter
New International Version
6 I am raising up the Babylonians,[a](A)
that ruthless and impetuous people,
who sweep across the whole earth(B)
to seize dwellings not their own.(C)
7 They are a feared and dreaded people;(D)
they are a law to themselves
and promote their own honor.
8 Their horses are swifter(E) than leopards,
fiercer than wolves(F) at dusk.
Their cavalry gallops headlong;
their horsemen come from afar.
They fly like an eagle swooping to devour;

New King James Version
6 For indeed I am (A)raising up the Chaldeans,
A bitter and hasty (B)nation
Which marches through the breadth of the earth,
To possess dwelling places that are not theirs.
7 They are terrible and dreadful;
Their judgment and their dignity proceed from themselves.
8 Their horses also are (C)swifter than leopards,
And more fierce than evening wolves.
Their [a]chargers [b]charge ahead;
Their cavalry comes from afar;
They fly as the (D)eagle that hastens to eat.
