New Living Translation
I have robbed their nests of riches and gathered up kingdoms as a farmer gathers eggs. No one can even flap a wing against me or utter a peep of protest."
King James Bible
And my hand hath found as a nest the riches of the people: and as one gathereth eggs that are left, have I gathered all the earth; and there was none that moved the wing, or opened the mouth, or peeped.
Darby Bible Translation
and my hand hath found as a nest the riches of the peoples, and as one gathereth forsaken eggs, have I gathered all the earth; and there was none that moved the wing, or opened the mouth, or chirped.
World English Bible

In saying that, you boasted proudly against me, and I have heard it all!
But even if you soar as high as eagles and build your nest among the stars, I will bring you crashing down," says the LORD.
