Amos 2:13-16

New American Standard Bible

Chapter 2

13 Behold, I am making a rut in the ground beneath you, Just as a wagon makes a rut when filled with sheaves. 14 Refuge will be lost from the swift, And the strong will not strengthen his power, Nor the warrior save his life. 15 The one who grasps the bow will not stand his ground, The swift of foot will not escape, Nor will the one who rides the horse save his life. 16 Even the bravest among the warriors will flee naked on that day,' declares the LORD.
King James Version

Chapter 2

13 Behold, I am pressed under you, as a cart is pressed that is full of sheaves. 14 Therefore the flight shall perish from the swift, and the strong shall not strengthen his force, neither shall the mighty deliver himself: 15 Neither shall he stand that handleth the bow; and he that is swift of foot shall not deliver himself: neither shall he that rideth the horse deliver himself. 16 And he that is courageous among the mighty shall flee away naked in that day, saith the LORD.
Christian Standard Bible

Chapter 2

13 Look, I am about to crush you in your place as a wagon crushes when full of grain. 14 Escape will fail the swift, the strong one will not maintain his strength, and the warrior will not save his life. 15 The archer will not stand his ground, the one who is swift of foot will not save himself, and the one riding a horse will not save his life.
16 Even the most courageous of the warriors will flee naked on that day --this is the Lord's declaration.
New Living Translation

Chapter 2

13 'So I will make you groan like a wagon loaded down with sheaves of grain. 14 Your fastest runners will not get away. The strongest among you will become weak. Even mighty warriors will be unable to save themselves. 15 The archers will not stand their ground. The swiftest runners won't be fast enough to escape. Even those riding horses won't be able to save themselves. 16 On that day the most courageous of your fighting men will drop their weapons and run for their lives,' says the LORD.
English Standard Version

Chapter 2

13 “Behold, I will press you down in your place, as a cart full of sheaves presses down. 14 Flight shall perish from the swift, and the strong shall not retain his strength, nor shall the mighty save his life; 15 he who handles the bow shall not stand, and he who is swift of foot shall not save himself, nor shall he who rides the horse save his life; 16 and he who is stout of heart among the mighty shall flee away naked in that day,” declares the LORD.
New International Version

Chapter 2

13 Now then, I will crush you as a cart crushes when loaded with grain. 14 The swift will not escape, the strong will not muster their strength, and the warrior will not save his life. 15 The archer will not stand his ground, the fleet-footed soldier will not get away, and the horseman will not save his life. 16 Even the bravest warriors will flee naked on that day,' declares the LORD.
