29 Take their tents and their flocks, their curtains and all their goods; carry off their camels for yourselves, and a cry shall go up: "Terror is all around!" 29 Their tents and their flocks will be taken; their shelters will be carried off with all their goods and camels. Men will shout to them, 'Terror on every side!'
30 Flee, wander far away, hide in deep places, O inhabitants of Hazor! says the Lord. For King Nebuchadrezzar of Babylon has made a plan against you and formed a purpose against you. 30 "Flee quickly away! Stay in deep caves, you who live in Hazor," declares the LORD.

31 Rise up, advance against a nation at ease, that lives secure, says the Lord, that has no gates or bars, that lives alone. 31 "Arise and attack a nation at ease, which lives in confidence," declares the LORD, "a nation that has neither gates nor bars; its people live alone.
32 Their camels shall become booty, their herds of cattle a spoil. I will scatter to every wind those who have shaven temples, and I will bring calamity against them from every side, says the Lord. 32 Their camels will become plunder, and their large herds will be booty. I will scatter to the winds those who are in distant places and will bring disaster on them from every side," declares the LORD.
33 Hazor shall become a lair of jackals, an everlasting waste; no one shall live there, nor shall anyone settle in it. 33 "Hazor will become a haunt of jackals, a desolate place forever. No one will live there; no man will dwell in it."
