·There is no one on the roads [L Highways lie desolate/deserted], no ·one walking [travelers] in the ·paths [roads; way]. People have broken the ·agreements [treaties; covenants] they made. They ·refuse to believe the proof from [L despise its] witnesses. No one ·respects [cares about; regards] other people.
Your roads lie in ruins; travelers detour on back roads. The Assyrians have broken their peace pact and care nothing for the promises they made in the presence of witnesses—they have no respect for anyone.
But look! Listen! Tough men weep openly. Peacemaking diplomats are in bitter tears. The roads are empty— not a soul out on the streets. The peace treaty is broken, its conditions violated, its signers reviled. The very ground under our feet mourns, the Lebanon mountains hang their heads, Flowering Sharon is a weed-choked gully, and the forests of Bashan and Carmel? Bare branches.
