Christian Standard Bible
God’s First Answer
5 Look at the nations[a](A) and observe(B)—
be utterly astounded!(C)
For I am doing something in your days
that you will not believe(D)
when you hear about it.(E)
6 Look! I am raising up(F) the Chaldeans,[b]
that bitter,(G) impetuous nation
that marches across the earth’s open spaces
to seize territories not its own.
7 They are fierce(H) and terrifying;
their views of justice and sovereignty
stem from themselves.
