12 Oy to the multitude of amim rabbim, which make an uproar like the roaring of the seas; and to the uproar of nations, that make a roar like the roar of mighty waters.

13 The nations shall roar like the roaring of mayim rabbim; but He shall rebuke them, and they shall flee far off, and shall be chased as the motz (chaff) of the harim before the ruach, and like whirling dust before the storm.

14 And hinei at erev, terror; and before boker, he [that terrorizes] is no more. This is the chelek of them that loot us, and the goral (lot) of them that plunder us.

12 Woe to the many nations that rage(A)
    they rage like the raging sea!(B)
Woe to the peoples who roar(C)

    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.
