Prophecies about Babylon1The ▼
▼ Or burden of, b oracle concerning c Babylon which d Isaiah the son of Amoz saw. 2 e Lift up a standard on the ▼
▼ Or wind-swept mountain, g bare hill,
Raise your voice to them,
h Wave the hand that they may i enter the doors of the nobles.
3I have commanded My consecrated ones,
I have even called My j mighty warriors,
My proudly exulting ones,
To execute My anger.
4A k sound of tumult on the mountains,
Like that of many people!
A sound of the uproar of kingdoms,
Of nations gathered together!
The Lord of hosts is mustering the army for battle.
5They are coming from a far country,
From the ▼
▼ Lit end of heaven, m farthest horizons,
The Lord and His instruments of n indignation,
To o destroy the whole land.
Judgment on the Day of the Lord6 Wail, for the p day of the Lord is near!
It will come as q destruction from ▼
▼ Heb Shaddaithe Almighty.
7Therefore s all hands will fall limp,
And every man’s t heart will melt.
8They will be u terrified,
Pains and anguish will take hold of them;
They will v writhe like a woman in labor,
They will look at one another in astonishment,
Their faces aflame.
9Behold w the day of the Lord is coming,
Cruel, with fury and burning anger,
To make the land a desolation;
And He will exterminate its sinners from it.
10For the x stars of heaven and their constellations
Will not flash forth their light;
The y sun will be dark when it rises
And the moon will not shed its light.
11Thus I will z punish the world for its evil
And the aa wicked for their iniquity;
I will also put an end to the ab arrogance of the proud
And abase the ac haughtiness of the ▼
▼ Or tyrants, despots, ae ruthless.
12I will make mortal man ▼
▼ Lit more precious, ag scarcer than pure gold
And mankind than the ah gold of Ophir.
13Therefore I will make the ai heavens tremble,
And aj the earth will be shaken from its place
At the fury of the Lord of hosts
In ak the day of His burning anger.
14And it will be that like a hunted gazelle,
Or like al sheep with none to gather them,
They will each turn to his own people,
And each one flee to his own land.
15Anyone who is found will be am thrust through,
And anyone who is captured will fall by the sword.
16Their an little ones also will be dashed to pieces
Before their eyes;
Their houses will be plundered
And their wives ravished.
Babylon Will Fall to the Medes17Behold, I am going to ao stir up the Medes against them,
Who will not value silver or ap take pleasure in gold.
18And their bows will ▼
▼ Lit dash in piecesmow down the ar young men,
They will not even have compassion on the fruit of the womb,
Nor will their as eye pity ▼
▼ Lit sonschildren.
19And au Babylon, the av beauty of kingdoms, the glory of the Chaldeans’ pride,
Will be as when God aw overthrew Sodom and Gomorrah.
20It will ax never be inhabited or lived in from generation to generation;
Nor will the ay Arab pitch his tent there,
Nor will shepherds make their flocks lie down there.
21But az desert creatures will lie down there,
And their houses will be full of ▼
▼ Or howling creaturesowls;
Ostriches also will live there, and ▼
▼ Or goat demonsshaggy goats will frolic there.
▼ Or howling creaturesHyenas will howl in their fortified towers
And jackals in their luxurious bd palaces.
Her fateful time also ▼
▼ Lit is near to comewill soon come
And her days will not be prolonged.
