NLT 1 “Run for your lives, you people of Benjamin! Get out of Jerusalem! Sound the alarm in Tekoa! Send up a signal at Beth-hakkerem! A powerful army is coming from the north, coming with disaster and destruction. NIV 1 "Flee for safety, people of Benjamin! Flee from Jerusalem! Sound the trumpet in Tekoa! Raise the signal over Beth Hakkerem! For disaster looms out of the north, even terrible destruction. NLT 2 O Jerusalem, you are my beautiful and delicate daughter— but I will destroy you! NIV 2 I will destroy the Daughter of Zion, so beautiful and delicate. NLT 3 Enemies will surround you, like shepherds camped around the city. Each chooses a place for his troops to devour. NIV 3 Shepherds with their flocks will come against her; they will pitch their tents around her, each tending his own portion." NLT 4 They shout, ‘Prepare for battle! Attack at noon!’ ‘No, it’s too late; the day is fading, and the evening shadows are falling.’ NIV 4 "Prepare for battle against her! Arise, let us attack at noon! But, alas, the daylight is fading, and the shadows of evening grow long. NLT 5 ‘Well then, let’s attack at night and destroy her palaces!’” NIV 5 So arise, let us attack at night and destroy her fortresses!" NLT 6 This is what the of Heaven’s Armies says: “Cut down the trees for battering rams. Build siege ramps against the walls of Jerusalem. This is the city to be punished, for she is wicked through and through. NIV 6 This is what the LORD Almighty says: "Cut down the trees and build siege ramps against Jerusalem. This city must be punished; it is filled with oppression.
