Revised Standard Version (RSV) New International Version (NIV)
6 Sigh therefore, son of man; sigh with breaking heart and bitter grief before their eyes. 6 "Therefore groan, son of man! Groan before them with broken heart and bitter grief.
7 And when they say to you, 'Why do you sigh?' you shall say, 'Because of the tidings. When it comes, every heart will melt and all hands will be feeble, every spirit will faint and all knees will be weak as water. Behold, it comes and it will be fulfilled,'" says the Lord GOD. 7 And when they ask you, 'Why are you groaning?' you shall say, 'Because of the news that is coming. Every heart will melt and every hand go limp; every spirit will become faint and every knee become as weak as water.' It is coming! It will surely take place, declares the Sovereign LORD."
