|New International Version (© 2011)|
Nations will see and be ashamed, deprived of all their power. They will put their hands over their mouths and their ears will become deaf.
King James Bible
The nations shall see and be confounded at all their might: they shall lay their hand upon their mouth, their ears shall be deaf.
American Standard Version
The nations shall see and be ashamed of all their might; they shall lay their hand upon their mouth; their ears shall be deaf.
Young's Literal Translation
See do nations, and they are ashamed of all their might, They lay a hand on the mouth, their ears are deaf.
Micah 7:16 Additional TranslationsClarke's Commentary on the Bible
The nations shall see and be confounded - Whether the words in these verses (Micah 7:15-17) be applied to the return from the Babylonish captivity, or to the prosperity of the Jews under the Maccabees, they may be understood as ultimately applicable to the final restoration of this people, and their lasting prosperity under the Gospel.
