New International Version
All your leaders have fled together; they have been captured without using the bow. All you who were caught were taken prisoner together, having fled while the enemy was still far away.
King James Bible
All thy rulers are fled together, they are bound by the archers: all that are found in thee are bound together, which have fled from far.
Darby Bible Translation
All thy rulers have fled together, they are taken prisoners without the bow: all that are found of thee are made prisoners together; they were fleeing far off.
World English Bible
All your rulers fled away together. They were bound by the archers. All who were found by you were bound together. They fled far away.
Young's Literal Translation
All thy rulers fled together from the bow, Bound have been all found of thee, They have been kept bound together, Afar off they have fled.

They flee from the sword, from the drawn sword, from the bent bow and from the heat of battle.
"In that day," declares the LORD, "the king and the officials will lose heart, the priests will be horrified, and the prophets will be appalled."
