New Living Translation (NLT) New International Version (NIV)
11 "The time is surely coming," says the Sovereign LORD, "when I will send a famine on the land -- not a famine of bread or water but of hearing the words of the LORD. 11 "The days are coming," declares the Sovereign LORD, "when I will send a famine through the land-- not a famine of food or a thirst for water, but a famine of hearing the words of the LORD.
12 People will stagger everywhere from sea to sea, searching for the word of the LORD, running here and going there, but they will not find it. 12 Men will stagger from sea to sea and wander from north to east, searching for the word of the LORD, but they will not find it.
13 Beautiful girls and fine young men will grow faint and weary, thirsting for the LORD's word. 13 "In that day "the lovely young women and strong young men will faint because of thirst.
14 And those who worship and swear by the idols of Samaria, Dan, and Beersheba will fall down, never to rise again." 14 They who swear by the shame of Samaria, or say, 'As surely as your god lives, O Dan,' or, 'As surely as the god of Beersheba lives'-- they will fall, never to rise again."
