New International Version
"Make up your mind," Moab says. "Render a decision. Make your shadow like night-- at high noon. Hide the fugitives, do not betray the refugees.
King James Bible

Darby Bible Translation

You should not wait at the crossroads to cut down their fugitives, nor hand over their survivors in the day of their trouble.
