New International Version
Before your pots can feel the heat of the thorns-- whether they be green or dry--the wicked will be swept away.
King James Bible
Before your pots can feel the thorns, he shall take them away as with a whirlwind, both living, and in his wrath.
Darby Bible Translation
Before your pots feel the thorns, green or burning, -- they shall be whirled away.
World English Bible
Before your pots can feel the heat of the thorns, he will sweep away the green and the burning alike.
Young's Literal Translation
Before your pots discern the bramble, As well the raw as the heated He whirleth away.
Psalm 58:9 Parallel

A whirlwind - Or the suffocating simoon that destroys life in an instant, without previous warning: so, without pining sickness - while ye are living - lively and active, the whirlwind of God's wrath shall sweep you away.

Faith the Sole Saving Act.
The east wind carries him off, and he is gone; it sweeps him out of his place.
so pursue them with your tempest and terrify them with your storm.
They swarmed around me like bees, but they were consumed as quickly as burning thorns; in the name of the LORD I cut them down.
When the storm has swept by, the wicked are gone, but the righteous stand firm forever.
Like the crackling of thorns under the pot, so is the laughter of fools. This too is meaningless.
