New International Version
Among those nations you will find no repose, no resting place for the sole of your foot. There the LORD will give you an anxious mind, eyes weary with longing, and a despairing heart.
King James Bible

"'As for those of you who are left, I will make their hearts so fearful in the lands of their enemies that the sound of a windblown leaf will put them to flight. They will run as though fleeing from the sword, and they will fall, even though no one is pursuing them.
You will live in constant suspense, filled with dread both night and day, never sure of your life.
But the eyes of the wicked will fail, and escape will elude them; their hope will become a dying gasp."
