Isaiah 17:13

Context
NETBible

Though these people make an uproar as loud as the roaring of powerful waves, 1  when he shouts at 2  them, they will flee to a distant land, driven before the wind like dead weeds on the hills, or like dead thistles 3  before a strong gale.

tn Or perhaps “tumbleweed” (NAB, NIV, CEV); KJV “like a rolling thing.”
