New Revised Standard Version, Anglicised Catholic Edition
12 Ah, the thunder of many peoples,
they thunder like the thundering of the sea!
Ah, the roar of nations,
they roar like the roaring of mighty waters!
13 The nations roar like the roaring of many waters,
but he will rebuke them, and they will flee far away,
chased like chaff on the mountains before the wind
and whirling dust before the storm.
14 At evening time, lo, terror!
Before morning, they are no more.
This is the fate of those who despoil us,
and the lot of those who plunder us.
New International Version
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.
