Revised Standard Version (RSV) New International Version (NIV)
13 "Behold, I will press you down in your place, as a cart full of sheaves presses down. 13 "Now then, I will crush you as a cart crushes when loaded with grain.
14 Flight shall perish from the swift, and the strong shall not retain his strength, nor shall the mighty save his life; 14 The swift will not escape, the strong will not muster their strength, and the warrior will not save his life.
15 he who handles the bow shall not stand, and he who is swift of foot shall not save himself, nor shall he who rides the horse save his life; 15 The archer will not stand his ground, the fleet-footed soldier will not get away, and the horseman will not save his life.
16 and he who is stout of heart among the mighty shall flee away naked in that day," says the LORD. 16 Even the bravest warriors will flee naked on that day," declares the LORD.
