Indeed, they will hear meaningless gibberish, senseless babbling, a syllable here, a syllable there. 1
I will make justice the measuring line, fairness the plumb line; hail will sweep away the unreliable refuge, 1 the floodwaters will overwhelm the hiding place.
So the Lord’s word to them will sound like meaningless gibberish, senseless babbling, a syllable here, a syllable there. 1 As a result, they will fall on their backsides when they try to walk, 2 and be injured, ensnared, and captured. 3
