17 “Behold, wI will stir up the Medes against them,
Who will not 7regard silver;
And as for gold, they will not delight in it.
And they will have no pity on the fruit of the womb;
Their eye will not spare children.
19 xAnd Babylon, the glory of kingdoms,
The beauty of the Chaldeans’ pride,
Will be as when God overthrew ySodom and Gomorrah.
