New American Standard Bible
15 There (A)fire will consume you,
The sword will cut you down;
It will (B)consume you as the locust does.
Multiply yourself like the creeping locust,
Multiply yourself like the swarming locust.
16 You have increased your (C)traders more than the stars of heaven—
The creeping locust [a]strips and flies away.
- Nahum 3:16 I.e. strips vegetation; or molts
