Habakkuk 2:14-16 New Century Version (NCV)

14 Then, just as water covers the sea,
    people everywhere will know the Lord’s glory.

15 “How terrible for the nation that makes its neighbors drink,
    pouring from the jug of wine until they are drunk
    so that it can look at their naked bodies.
16 You Babylonians will be filled with disgrace, not respect.
    It’s your turn to drink and fall to the ground like a drunk person.
The cup of anger from the Lord’s right hand is coming around to you.
    You will receive disgrace, not respect.

Habakkuk 2:14-16 New International Version (NIV)

14 For the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord
    as the waters cover the sea.

15 “Woe to him who gives drink to his neighbors,
    pouring it from the wineskin till they are drunk,
    so that he can gaze on their naked bodies!
16 You will be filled with shame instead of glory.
    Now it is your turn! Drink and let your nakedness be exposed[a]!
The cup from the Lord’s right hand is coming around to you,
    and disgrace will cover your glory.
