Other Nations Are Like Grain Worth Nothing

12 Listen to the cry of sorrow of many people. They sound like the noise of the seas and the noise of nations! They sound like the rushing of powerful waters. 13 The nations move on like the noise of many waters. But God will speak sharp words to them and they will run far away. They will be blown away like the part of grain that is of no worth by the wind in the mountains. They will be like dust blown around in a storm. 14 At evening time there is much fear! Before morning, they are gone. This will be what will come to those who take what belongs to us. It will be what happens to those who rob us.

12 Woe to the many nations that rage(A)
    they rage like the raging sea!(B)
Woe to the peoples who roar(C)
    they roar like the roaring of great waters!(D)
13 Although the peoples roar(E) like the roar of surging waters,
    when he rebukes(F) them they flee(G) far away,
driven before the wind like chaff(H) on the hills,
    like tumbleweed before a gale.(I)
14 In the evening, sudden(J) terror!(K)
    Before the morning, they are gone!(L)
This is the portion of those who loot us,
    the lot of those who plunder us.
