New International Version
Like a hunted gazelle, like sheep without a shepherd, they will all return to their own people, they will flee to their native land.
King James Bible
And it shall be as the chased roe, and as a sheep that no man taketh up: they shall every man turn to his own people, and flee every one into his own land.
Darby Bible Translation
And it shall be as with a chased roe, and as with a flock that no man gathereth together; every one shall turn to his own people, and every one flee into his own land.
World English Bible
