New International Version
Their people, drained of power, are dismayed and put to shame. They are like plants in the field, like tender green shoots, like grass sprouting on the roof, scorched before it grows up.
King James Bible
Therefore their inhabitants were of small power, they were dismayed and confounded: they were as the grass of the field, and as the green herb, as the grass on the housetops, and as corn blasted before it be grown up.
Darby Bible Translation
And their inhabitants were powerless, they were dismayed and put to shame; they were [as] the grass of the field and the green herb, [as] the grass on the housetops, and grain blighted before it be grown up.
World English Bible
Therefore their inhabitants had little power. They were dismayed and confounded. They were like the grass of the field, and like the green herb, like the grass on the housetops, and like a field before its crop has grown.

What I tell you in the dark, speak in the daylight; what is whispered in your ear, proclaim from the roofs.
After them, seven other heads of grain sprouted--thin and scorched by the east wind.
May they be like grass on the roof, which withers before it can grow;
The grass withers and the flowers fall, because the breath of the LORD blows on them. Surely the people are grass.
