New International Version
The ruthless will vanish, the mockers will disappear, and all who have an eye for evil will be cut down--
King James Bible
For the terrible one is brought to nought, and the scorner is consumed, and all that watch for iniquity are cut off:
Darby Bible Translation
For the terrible one shall come to nought, and the scorner shall be no more, and all that watch for iniquity shall be cut off,
World English Bible
For the ruthless is brought to nothing, and the scoffer ceases, and all those who are alert to do evil are cut off--
Young's Literal Translation
For ceased hath the terrible one, And consumed hath been the scorner, And cut off have been all watching for iniquity,
Isaiah 29:20 Parallel
CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
And Lebanon shall be turned into a fruitful field "Ere Lebanon become like Carmel" - A mashal, or proverbial saying, expressing any great revolution of things; and, when respecting two subjects, an entire reciprocal change: explained here by some interpreters, I think with great probability, as having its principal view beyond the revolutions then near at hand, to the rejection of the Jews, and the calling of the Gentiles. The first were the vineyard of God, כרם אל kerem El, (if the prophet, who loves an allusion to words of like sounds, may be supposed to have intended one here), cultivated and watered by him in vain, to be given up, and to become a wilderness: compare Isaiah 5:1-7. The last had been hitherto barren; but were, by the grace of God, to be rendered fruitful. See Matthew 21:43; Romans 11:30, Romans 11:31. Carmel stands here opposed to Lebanon, and therefore is to be taken as a proper name.

13. I am told, further, that you touch with some critical sharpness upon some points of my letter, and, with the well-known wrinkles rising on your forehead and your eyebrows knitted, make sport of me with a wit worthy of Plautus, for having said that I had a Jew named Barabbas for my teacher. I do not wonder at your writing Barabbas for Baranina, the letters of the names being somewhat similar, when you allow yourself such a license in changing the names themselves, as to turn Eusebius into Pamphilus, …

Therefore hear the word of the LORD, you scoffers who rule this people in Jerusalem.
But your many enemies will become like fine dust, the ruthless hordes like blown chaff. Suddenly, in an instant,
No one calls for justice; no one pleads a case with integrity. They rely on empty arguments, they utter lies; they conceive trouble and give birth to evil.
