At the sound of their fall the earth will tremble; their cry will resound to the Red Sea.
The earth has quaked at the noise of their downfall. There is an outcry! The noise of it has been heard at the Red Sea.
The earth will shake with the noise of Edom’s fall, and its cry of despair will be heard all the way to the Red Sea.
The very earth will shudder because of their cries, cries of anguish heard at the distant Red Sea.
The earth is shaking with the noise of their fall; their cry is sounding in the Red Sea.
At the sound of their fall the earth shall tremble; the sound of their cry shall be heard at the Red Sea.
The earth shakes at the noise of their fall; At the cry its noise is heard at the Red Sea.

1 tn Heb “The earth will quake when at the sound of their downfall.” However, as in many other places “earth” stands here metonymically for the inhabitants or people of the earth (see E. W. Bullinger, Figures of Speech, 578-79, and compare usage in 2 Sam 15:23; Ps 66:4).
2 tn Heb “the Red Sea,” of which the Gulf of Aqaba formed the northeastern arm. The land of Edom once reached this far according to 1 Kgs 9:26.
