Context
NET ©

“It did no good for me to punish your people. They did not respond to such correction. You slaughtered your prophets like a voracious lion.” 1 

NIV ©

"In vain I punished your people; they did not respond to correction. Your sword has devoured your prophets like a ravening lion.

NASB ©

"In vain I have struck your sons; They accepted no chastening. Your sword has devoured your prophets Like a destroying lion.

NLT ©

I have punished your children, but it did them no good. They still refuse to obey. You yourselves have killed your prophets as a lion kills its prey.

MSG ©

"I've wasted my time trying to train your children. They've paid no attention to me, ignored my discipline. And you've gotten rid of your God-messengers, treating them like dirt and sweeping them away.

BBE ©

I gave your children blows to no purpose; they got no good from training: your sword has been the destruction of your prophets, like a death-giving lion.

NRSV ©

In vain I have struck down your children; they accepted no correction. Your own sword devoured your prophets like a ravening lion.

NKJV ©

"In vain I have chastened your children; They received no correction. Your sword has devoured your prophets Like a destroying lion.

NET © Notes

tn Heb “Your sword devoured your prophets like a destroying lion.” However, the reference to the sword in this and many similar idioms is merely idiomatic for death by violent means.
