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.
King James Version
2 Wherefore, when I came, was there no man? 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? behold, at my rebuke I dry up the sea, I make the rivers a wilderness: their fish stinketh, because there is no water, and dieth for thirst.Read full chapter
