“Because of this [coming judgment] will the land not quake And everyone mourn who dwells in it? Indeed, all of it shall rise up like the Nile, And it will be tossed around [from the impact of judgment] And [afterward] subside again like the Nile of Egypt.
Shall not the land tremble on this account, and everyone mourn who dwells in it? Yes, it shall rise like the river [Nile], all of it, and it shall be tossed about and sink back again to normal level, as does the Nile of Egypt.
There will be an earthquake that will shake the whole land because of what they did. Everyone living there will cry for those who died. The land will be tossed around. The whole land will rise and fall like the Nile River in Egypt.”
The whole ·land [or earth] will shake because of it, and everyone who lives in the land will ·cry for those who died [mourn]. The whole land will rise like the Nile; it will be ·shaken [stirred/heaved up], and then it will ·fall [sink; subside] like the Nile River in Egypt [C the Nile flooded its banks each year].”
The whole land will shake because of it. Everyone who lives in the land will cry for those who died. The whole land will rise like the Nile. It will be shaken, and then it will fall like the Nile River in Egypt.”
Surely the land will tremble because of this, won’t it? And all who live in it will mourn, won’t they? The entire land will swell up like a flooded river. It will be stirred up and then will sink like the river of Egypt.
God swears against the arrogance of Jacob: “I’m keeping track of their every last sin.” God’s oath will shake earth’s foundations, dissolve the whole world into tears. God’s oath will sweep in like a river that rises, flooding houses and lands, And then recedes, leaving behind a sea of mud.
The whole land will shake because of it, and everyone who lives in the land will cry for those who died. The whole land will rise like the Nile; it will be shaken, and then it will fall like the Nile River in Egypt.”
“The land will tremble because of what will happen. Everyone who lives in it will mourn. So the whole land will rise like the Nile River. It will be stirred up. Then it will settle back down again like that river in Egypt.”
Won’t the land beneath their feet tremble for this, and everyone who lives in it mourn? The ground will rise and fall like the river Nile, which floods and recedes; it will ripple and roll like the current of Egypt’s Nile.
Whether on this thing, the earth shall not be moved together, and each dweller thereof shall mourn? And it shall go up as all the flood, and shall be cast out, and shall float away, as the strand of Egypt. (For on this matter, shall not the earth be altogether moved, and each of its inhabitants shall mourn? It all shall go up like a river, and shall be thrown out, and shall flow away, like the River of Egypt, that is, the Nile.)
