Pour out your anger on the nations that do not acknowledge you, 1 on the kingdoms that do not pray to you! 2
Pour out your wrath on the nations that do not acknowledge you, on the kingdoms that do not call on your name;
Pour out Your wrath upon the nations which do not know You, And upon the kingdoms which do not call upon Your name.
Pour out your wrath on the nations that refuse to recognize you––on kingdoms that do not call upon your name.
If you're going to be angry, be angry with the pagans who care nothing about you, or your rival kingdoms who ignore you.
Let your wrath be on the nations who have no knowledge of you, and on the kingdoms who have not made prayer to your name.
Pour out your anger on the nations that do not know you, and on the kingdoms that do not call on your name.
Pour out Your wrath on the nations that do not know You, And on the kingdoms that do not call on Your name.
upon the heathen
that have not known
thee, and upon the kingdoms
that have not called
upon thy name

2 sn The kingdoms that do not pray to you. The people of these kingdoms pray to other gods, not the Lord, because they do not recognize his authority over them.
