New International Version
They will put on sackcloth and be clothed with terror. Every face will be covered with shame, and every head will be shaved.
King James Bible
They shall also gird themselves with sackcloth, and horror shall cover them; and shame shall be upon all faces, and baldness upon all their heads.
Darby Bible Translation
And they shall gird on sackcloth, and horror shall cover them; and shame shall be upon all faces, and baldness upon all their heads.
World English Bible
They shall also clothe themselves with sackcloth, and horror shall cover them; and shame shall be on all faces, and baldness on all their heads.
Young's Literal Translation
And they have girded on sackcloth, And covered them hath trembling, And unto all faces is shame, And on all their heads -- baldness.
Ezekiel 7:18 Parallel
CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
All knees shall be weak as water - Calmet understands this curiously: La frayeur dont on sera saisi, fera qu'on ne pourra retenir son urine. D'autres l'expliquent d'une autre souillure plus honteuse. I believe him to be nearly about right. St. Jerome is exactly the same: Pavoris magnitudine, urina polluet genua, nec valebit profluentes aquas vesica prohibere. This and other malretentions are often the natural effect of extreme fear or terror.

Christ's doves weep. They that escape shall be like doves of the valleys, all of them mourning, every one for his iniquity' (Ezekiel 7:16). There are several divine motives to holy mourning: 1 Tears cannot be put to a better use. If you weep for outward losses, you lose your tears. It is like a shower …
Thomas Watson—The Beatitudes: An Exposition of Matthew 5:1-12
"And There is None that Calleth Upon Thy Name, that Stirreth up Himself to Take Hold on Thee,"
When I think about this, I am terrified; trembling seizes my body.
Fear and trembling have beset me; horror has overwhelmed me.
In the streets they wear sackcloth; on the roofs and in the public squares they all wail, prostrate with weeping.
They will shave their heads because of you and will put on sackcloth. They will weep over you with anguish of soul and with bitter mourning.
Put on sackcloth, you priests, and mourn; wail, you who minister before the altar. Come, spend the night in sackcloth, you who minister before my God; for the grain offerings and drink offerings are withheld from the house of your God.
I will turn your religious festivals into mourning and all your singing into weeping. I will make all of you wear sackcloth and shave your heads. I will make that time like mourning for an only son and the end of it like a bitter day.
