New King James Version
2 Why, when I came, was there no man?
Why, when I called, was there none to answer?
Is My hand shortened at all that it cannot redeem?
Or have I no power to deliver?
Indeed with My (A)rebuke I dry up the sea,
I make the rivers a wilderness;
Their fish stink because there is no water,
And die of thirst.
New International Version
2 When I came, why was there no one?
When I called, why was there no one to answer?(A)
Was my arm too short(B) to deliver you?
Do I lack the strength(C) to rescue you?
By a mere rebuke(D) I dry up the sea,(E)
I turn rivers into a desert;(F)
their fish rot for lack of water
and die of thirst.
