Nahum 3:8-11 World English Bible (WEB)

Are you better than No-Amon,[a] who was situated among the rivers, who had the waters around her; whose rampart was the sea, and her wall was of the sea? Cush and Egypt were her boundless strength. Put and Libya were her helpers. 10 Yet was she carried away. She went into captivity. Her young children also were dashed in pieces at the head of all the streets, and they cast lots for her honorable men, and all her great men were bound in chains. 11 You also will be drunken. You will be hidden. You also will seek a stronghold because of the enemy.

Nahum 3:8-11 New American Standard Bible (NASB)

Are you better than [a]No-amon,
Which was situated by the waters of the Nile,
With water surrounding her,
Whose rampart was [b]the sea,
Whose wall consisted of [c]the sea?
Ethiopia was her might,
And Egypt too, without limits.
Put and Lubim were among [d]her helpers.
10 Yet she became an exile,
She went into captivity;
Also her small children were dashed to pieces
At the head of every street;
They cast lots for her honorable men,
And all her great men were bound with fetters.
11 You too will become drunk,
You will be hidden.
You too will search for a refuge from the enemy.
