12 Listen to the restless roar of the peoples!
    They roar like a fitful sea.
Listen to the crashing thunder of the nations;
    they thunder like a powerful surge of water.
13 But even if they thunder like a wall of water,
    when God rebukes them, they will run far away;
With a word they’ll be driven like chaff in a mountain gust
    or dust in a windstorm.
14 In the evening, look, their enemies terrorize them;
    but by morning, they’re gone.
So it will be for those who attack and steal from us;
    those who take, take, take will come to nothing and run away.

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.
