New Revised Standard (NRS) New International Version (NIV)
16 Therefore thus says the Lord, the God of hosts, the Lord: In all the squares there shall be wailing; and in all the streets they shall say, "Alas! alas!" They shall call the farmers to mourning, and those skilled in lamentation, to wailing; 16 Therefore this is what the Lord, the LORD God Almighty, says: "There will be wailing in all the streets and cries of anguish in every public square. The farmers will be summoned to weep and the mourners to wail.
17 in all the vineyards there shall be wailing, for I will pass through the midst of you, says the Lord. 17 There will be wailing in all the vineyards, for I will pass through your midst," says the LORD.
