New Living Translation
But though they thunder like breakers on a beach, God will silence them, and they will run away. They will flee like chaff scattered by the wind, like a tumbleweed whirling before a storm.
King James Bible
The nations shall rush like the rushing of many waters: but God shall rebuke them, and they shall flee far off, and shall be chased as the chaff of the mountains before the wind, and like a rolling thing before the whirlwind.

Nations as the wasting of many waters are wasted, And He hath pushed against it, And it hath fled afar off, And been pursued as chaff of hills before wind, And as a rolling thing before a hurricane.

CommentaryIsaiah 17:13 Parallel Commentaries
Are they driven before the wind like straw? Are they carried away by the storm like chaff? Not at all!
But not the wicked! They are like worthless chaff, scattered by the wind.
You have rebuked the nations and destroyed the wicked; you have erased their names forever.
You quieted the raging oceans with their pounding waves and silenced the shouting of the nations.
O my God, scatter them like tumbleweed, like chaff before the wind!
Therefore, the Lord will overwhelm them with a mighty flood from the Euphrates River--the king of Assyria and all his glory. This flood will overflow all its channels
They have fled from the sword, from the drawn sword, from the bent bow and the terrors of battle.
