12 Woe to the many nations that rage(A)
    they rage like the raging sea!(B)
Woe to the peoples who roar(C)
    they roar like the roaring of great waters!(D)
13 Although the peoples roar(E) like the roar of surging waters,
    when he rebukes(F) them they flee(G) far away,
driven before the wind like chaff(H) on the hills,
    like tumbleweed before a gale.(I)
14 In the evening, sudden(J) terror!(K)
    Before the morning, they are gone!(L)
This is the portion of those who loot us,
    the lot of those who plunder us.
