New International Version
We are given no signs from God; no prophets are left, and none of us knows how long this will be.
King James Bible
We see not our signs: there is no more any prophet: neither is there among us any that knoweth how long.
Darby Bible Translation
We see not our signs; there is no more any prophet, neither is there among us any that knoweth how long.
World English Bible

They had not, as usual, prophets who went to and fro through the land, preaching repentance and remission of sins.

Your foes roared in the place where you met with us; they set up their standards as signs.
the day he displayed his signs in Egypt, his wonders in the region of Zoan.
How long, LORD? Will you be angry forever? How long will your jealousy burn like fire?
How long, LORD God Almighty, will your anger smolder against the prayers of your people?
Where there is no revelation, people cast off restraint; but blessed is the one who heeds wisdom's instruction.
