English Standard Version
2 (A)Why, when I came, was there no man;
why, when I called, was there no one to answer?
(B)Is my hand shortened, that it cannot redeem?
Or have I no power to deliver?
(C)Behold, by my rebuke (D)I dry up the sea,
(E)I make the rivers a desert;
(F)their fish stink for lack of water
and die of thirst.
