Isaiah 56:9-12 World English Bible (WEB)

All you animals of the field,
    come to devour,
    all you animals in the forest.
10 His watchmen are blind.
    They are all without knowledge.
They are all mute dogs.
    They can’t bark;
    dreaming, lying down, loving to slumber.
11 Yes, the dogs are greedy.
    They can never have enough.
They are shepherds who can’t understand.
    They have all turned to their own way,
    each one to his gain, from every quarter.
12 “Come,” say they, “I will get wine,
    and we will fill ourselves with strong drink;
    and tomorrow will be as today,
    great beyond measure.”

Isaiah 56:9-12 New American Standard Bible (NASB)

All you beasts of the field,
All you beasts in the forest,
Come to eat.
10 His watchmen are blind,
All of them know nothing.
All of them are mute dogs unable to bark,
[a]Dreamers lying down, who love to slumber;
11 And the dogs are [b]greedy, they [c]are not satisfied.
And they are shepherds who have no understanding;
They have all turned to their own way,
Each one to his unjust gain, to the last one.
12 “Come,” they say, “let [d]us get wine, and let us drink heavily of strong drink;
And tomorrow will be like today, only more so.”
