Tree of Life Version
12 Oy! The uproar of many peoples
who roar like the roaring of the seas.
The rumbling of nations,
who rush in like the rumbling of mighty waters!
13 The nations will rush in like the rumbling of many waters,
but He will rebuke them so they will flee far away,
chased like chaff on the hills before the wind,
like whirling dust before the storm.
14 At evening time—sudden terror!
Before morning, they are no more.
This is the reward of those who plunder us
and the lot of those who pillage 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.
