A drought on her waters! They will dry up. For it is a land of idols, idols that will go mad with terror.
King James Bible
A drought is upon her waters; and they shall be dried up: for it is the land of graven images, and they are mad upon their idols.
American Standard Version
A drought is upon her waters, and they shall be dried up; for it is a land of graven images, and they are mad over idols.
Young's Literal Translation
A sword is on her waters, and they have been dried up, For it is a land of graven images, And in idols they do boast themselves.
Jeremiah 50:38 Additional TranslationsClarke's Commentary on the Bible
A drought is upon her waters - May not this refer to the draining of the channel of the Euphrates, by which the army of Cyrus entered the city. See on Jeremiah 50:24 (note). The original is, however, חרב chereb, a sword, as in the preceding verses, which signifies war, or any calamity by which the thing on which it falls is ruined.
