Is he to keep on emptying his net, destroying nations without mercy?
Will they therefore empty their net And continually slay nations without sparing?
Will you let them get away with this forever? Will they succeed forever in their heartless conquests?
Are you going to let this go on and on? Will you let this Babylonian fisherman Fish like a weekend angler, killing people as if they're nothing but fish?
For this cause his net is ever open, and there is no end to his destruction of the nations.
Is he then to keep on emptying his net, and destroying nations without mercy?
Shall they therefore empty their net, And continue to slay nations without pity?
