King James Bible
And the remnant of Jacob shall be among the Gentiles in the midst of many people as a lion among the beasts of the forest, as a young lion among the flocks of sheep: who, if he go through, both treadeth down, and teareth in pieces, and none can deliver.
Darby Bible Translation

Repent, all of you who forget me, or I will tear you apart, and no one will help you.
You send the darkness, and it becomes night, when all the forest animals prowl about.
the lion, king of animals, who won't turn aside for anything,
They will roar like lions, like the strongest of lions. Growling, they will pounce on their victims and carry them off, and no one will be there to rescue them.
