Isaiah 30:17

Context
NET ©

One thousand will scurry at the battle cry of one enemy soldier; 1  at the battle cry of five enemy soldiers you will all run away, 2  until the remaining few are as isolated 3  as a flagpole on a mountaintop or a signal flag on a hill.”

NIV ©

A thousand will flee at the threat of one; at the threat of five you will all flee away, till you are left like a flagstaff on a mountaintop, like a banner on a hill."

NASB ©

One thousand will flee at the threat of one man; You will flee at the threat of five, Until you are left as a flag on a mountain top And as a signal on a hill.

NLT ©

One of them will chase a thousand of you. Five of them will make all of you flee. You will be left like a lonely flagpole on a distant mountaintop."

MSG ©

Think again: A thousand of you will scatter before one attacker. Before a mere five you'll all run off. There'll be nothing left of you--a flagpole on a hill with no flag, a signpost on a roadside with the sign torn off."

BBE ©

A thousand will go in fear before one; even before five you will go in flight: till you are like a pillar by itself on the top of a mountain, and like a flag on a hill.

NRSV ©

A thousand shall flee at the threat of one, at the threat of five you shall flee, until you are left like a flagstaff on the top of a mountain, like a signal on a hill.

NKJV ©

One thousand shall flee at the threat of one, At the threat of five you shall flee, Till you are left as a pole on top of a mountain And as a banner on a hill.

NET © Notes

tn Heb “One thousand from before [or “because of”] one battle cry.” גְּעָרָה (gÿarah) is often defined as “threat,” but in war contexts it likely refers to a shout or battle cry. See Ps 76:6.

tn Heb “from before [or “because of”] the battle cry of five you will flee.

tn Heb “until you are left” (so NAB, NASB, NRSV).
