Jeremiah 51:47–57

47  Therefore, behold, the days come,

That tI will do judgment upon tuthe graven images of Babylon:

And ther whole land shall be confounded,

And tall her slain shall fall in the midst of her.

48  Then vthe heaven and the earth, and all that is therein, shall sing for Babylon:

For the spoilers wshall come unto her from the north, saith the Lord.

49  ||As Babylon hath caused xthe slain of Israel to fall,

ySo at Babylon shall fall the slain of all ||the earth.

50  zYe that have escaped the sword, go away, stand not still:

aRemember the Lord afar off,

And let Jerusalem acome into your mind.

51  bWe are confounded, because we have heard reproach:

bcShame hath covered our faces:

ccFor strangers are come into the sanctuaries of the Lord’s house.

52  dWherefore, behold, the days come, saith the Lord,

That dI will do judgment upon her graven images:

And dthrough all her land ethe wounded shall groan.

53  Though Babylon should fmount up to heaven,

And though she should ffortify the height of her strength,

Yet from me shall spoilers come unto her, saith the Lord.

54  gA sound of a cry cometh from Babylon,

And great destruction from the land of the Chaldeans:

55  Because the Lord hath spoiled Babylon,

And destroyed out of her the great voice;

When hher waves do roar like great waters,

A noise of their voice is uttered:

56  Because the spoiler is come upon her, even upon Babylon,

And her mighty men are taken,

Every one of their bows is broken:

For ithe Lord God of recompences shall surely requite.

57  And kI will make drunk lher princes, and lher wise men,

mHer captains, and mher rulers, and her mighty men:

And kthey shall sleep a perpetual sleep, kand not wake,

nSaith the King, whose name is the Lord of hosts.
