1 H1697 The word H3068 that the LORD H1696 spoke H413 against H894 Babylon H413 and against H776 the land H3778 of the Chaldeans H3414 by Jeremiah H5030 the prophet.
2 H5046 Declare H1471 you among the nations, H8085 and publish, H5375 and set H5251 up a standard; H8085 publish, H3582 and conceal H559 not: say, H894 Babylon H3920 is taken, H1078 Bel H3001 is confounded, H4781 Merodach H2844 is broken H6091 in pieces; her idols H3001 are confounded, H1544 her images H2865 are broken in pieces.
3 H6828 For out of the north H5927 there comes H1471 up a nation H5921 against H1931 her, which H7896 shall make H776 her land H8047 desolate, H3808 and none H3427 shall dwell H5110 therein: they shall remove, H1980 they shall depart, H120 both man H929 and beast.
4 H1992 In those H3117 days, H6256 and in that time, H5002 said H3068 the LORD, H1121 the children H3478 of Israel H935 shall come, H1121 they and the children H3063 of Judah H3162 together, H1980 going H1058 and weeping: H3212 they shall go, H1245 and seek H3068 the LORD H430 their God.
5 H7592 They shall ask H1870 the way H6726 to Zion H6440 with their faces H2008 thitherward, H935 saying, Come, H3867 and let us join H3068 ourselves to the LORD H5769 in a perpetual H1285 covenant H7911 that shall not be forgotten.
6 H5971 My people H1961 has been H6 lost H6629 sheep: H7462 their shepherds H8582 have caused them to go H8582 astray, H7725 they have turned H2022 them away on the mountains: H1980 they have gone H2022 from mountain H1389 to hill, H7911 they have forgotten H7258 their resting place.
7 H3605 All H4672 that found H398 them have devoured H6862 them: and their adversaries H559 said, H816 We offend H8471 not, because H834 H2398 they have sinned H3068 against the LORD, H5116 the habitation H6664 of justice, H3068 even the LORD, H4723 the hope H1 of their fathers.
8 H5110 Remove H8432 out of the middle H894 of Babylon, H3318 and go H3318 forth H776 out of the land H3778 of the Chaldeans, H6260 and be as the he goats H6440 before H6629 the flocks.
9 H2009 For, see, H5782 I will raise H5927 and cause to come H5921 up against H894 Babylon H6951 an assembly H1419 of great H1471 nations H6828 from the north H776 country: H6186 and they shall set themselves in array H8033 against her; from there H3920 she shall be taken: H2671 their arrows H1368 shall be as of a mighty H7919 expert H3808 man; none H7725 shall return H7387 in vain.
10 H3778 And Chaldea H7998 shall be a spoil: H3605 all H7998 that spoil H7646 her shall be satisfied, H5002 said H3068 the LORD.
11 H3588 Because H8056 you were glad, H3588 because H5937 you rejoiced, H8154 O you destroyers H5159 of my heritage, H3588 because H6335 you are grown H6335 fat H5697 as the heifer H1877 at grass, H6670 and bellow H47 as bulls;
12 H517 Your mother H3966 shall be sore H954 confounded; H3205 she that bore H2659 you shall be ashamed: H2009 behold, H319 the last H1471 of the nations H4057 shall be a wilderness, H6723 a dry H6160 land, and a desert.
13 H7110 Because of the wrath H3068 of the LORD H3427 it shall not be inhabited, H3605 but it shall be wholly H8077 desolate: H3605 every H5674 one that goes H894 by Babylon H8074 shall be astonished, H8319 and hiss H5921 at H3605 all H4347 her plagues.
14 H6186 Put yourselves in array H5921 against H894 Babylon H5439 round H3605 about: all H1869 you that bend H7198 the bow, H3034 shoot H413 at H2550 her, spare H408 no H2671 arrows: H2398 for she has sinned H3068 against the LORD.
15 H7321 Shout H5921 against H5439 her round H5414 about: she has given H3027 her hand: H803 her foundations H5307 are fallen, H2346 her walls H2040 are thrown H2040 down: H5360 for it is the vengeance H3068 of the LORD: H5358 take vengeance H6213 on her; as she has done, H6213 do to her.
16 H3772 Cut H2232 off the sower H894 from Babylon, H8610 and him that handles H4038 the sickle H6256 in the time H7105 of harvest: H6440 for fear H3238 of the oppressing H2719 sword H6437 they shall turn H376 every H376 one H5971 to his people, H5127 and they shall flee H376 every H376 one H776 to his own land.
17 H3478 Israel H6340 is a scattered H7716 sheep; H738 the lions H5080 have driven H7223 him away: first H4428 the king H804 of Assyria H398 has devoured H314 him; and last H2088 this H5019 Nebuchadrezzar H4428 king H894 of Babylon H6105 has broken H6106 his bones.
18 H5921 Therefore H3651 H3541 thus H559 said H3068 the LORD H6635 of hosts, H430 the God H3478 of Israel; H2005 Behold, H6485 I will punish H4428 the king H894 of Babylon H776 and his land, H6485 as I have punished H4428 the king H804 of Assyria.
19 H7725 And I will bring H3478 Israel H7725 again H5116 to his habitation, H7462 and he shall feed H3760 on Carmel H1316 and Bashan, H5315 and his soul H7646 shall be satisfied H2022 on mount H669 Ephraim H1568 and Gilead.
20 H1992 In those H3117 days, H6256 and in that time, H5002 said H3068 the LORD, H5771 the iniquity H3478 of Israel H1245 shall be sought H369 for, and there shall be none; H2403 and the sins H3063 of Judah, H4672 and they shall not be found: H5545 for I will pardon H834 them whom H7604 I reserve.
21 H5927 Go H5921 up against H776 the land H4850 of Merathaim, H5921 even against H413 it, and against H3427 the inhabitants H6489 of Pekod: H2717 waste H2763 and utterly destroy H310 after H5002 them, said H3068 the LORD, H6213 and do H3605 according to all H6680 that I have commanded you.
23 H349 How H6360 is the hammer H3605 of the whole H776 earth H1438 cut H7665 asunder and broken! H349 how H894 is Babylon H1961 become H8047 a desolation H1471 among the nations!
24 H3369 I have laid a snare H1571 for you, and you are also H3920 taken, H894 O Babylon, H3045 and you were not aware: H4672 you are found, H1571 and also H8610 caught, H3588 because H1624 you have striven H3068 against the LORD.
25 H3068 The LORD H6605 has opened H214 his armory, H3318 and has brought H3318 forth H3627 the weapons H2195 of his indignation: H1931 for this H4399 is the work H136 of the Lord H3069 GOD H6635 of hosts H776 in the land H3778 of the Chaldeans.
26 H935 Come H7093 against her from the utmost H7093 border, H6605 open H3965 her storehouses: H5549 cast H6194 her up as heaps, H2763 and destroy H408 her utterly: let nothing H7611 of her be left.
27 H2717 Slay H3605 all H6499 her bullocks; H3381 let them go H3381 down H2874 to the slaughter: H1945 woe H3117 to them! for their day H935 is come, H6256 the time H6486 of their visitation.
28 H6963 The voice H5127 of them that flee H6412 and escape H776 out of the land H894 of Babylon, H5046 to declare H6726 in Zion H5360 the vengeance H3068 of the LORD H430 our God, H5360 the vengeance H1964 of his temple.
29 H8085 Call H7228 together the archers H413 against H894 Babylon: H3605 all H1869 you that bend H7198 the bow, H2583 camp H5921 against H5439 it round H408 about; let none H6413 thereof escape: H7999 recompense H6467 her according to her work; H3605 according to all H6213 that she has done, H6213 do H2102 to her: for she has been proud H413 against H3068 the LORD, H413 against H6944 the Holy H3478 One of Israel.
30 H5921 Therefore H3651 H970 shall her young H5307 men fall H7339 in the streets, H3605 and all H582 her men H4421 of war H1826 shall be cut H3117 off in that day, H5002 said H3068 the LORD.
31 H2005 Behold, H413 I am against H2087 you, O you most proud, H5002 said H136 the Lord H3069 GOD H6635 of hosts: H3117 for your day H935 is come, H6256 the time H6485 that I will visit you.
32 H2087 And the most proud H3782 shall stumble H5307 and fall, H369 and none H6965 shall raise H3341 him up: and I will kindle H784 a fire H5892 in his cities, H398 and it shall devour H3605 all H5439 round about him.
33 H3541 Thus H559 said H3068 the LORD H6635 of hosts; H1121 The children H3478 of Israel H1121 and the children H3063 of Judah H6231 were oppressed H3162 together: H3605 and all H7617 that took them captives H2388 held H3985 them fast; they refused H7971 to let them go.
34 H1350 Their Redeemer H2389 is strong; H3068 the LORD H6635 of hosts H8034 is his name: H7378 he shall thoroughly plead H7379 their cause, H7280 that he may give rest H776 to the land, H7264 and disquiet H3427 the inhabitants H894 of Babylon.
35 H2719 A sword H3778 is on the Chaldeans, H5002 said H3068 the LORD, H3427 and on the inhabitants H894 of Babylon, H8269 and on her princes, H2450 and on her wise men.
36 H2719 A sword H907 is on the liars; H2973 and they shall dote: H2719 a sword H1368 is on her mighty H2865 men; and they shall be dismayed.
37 H2719 A sword H5483 is on their horses, H7393 and on their chariots, H3605 and on all H6154 the mingled H8432 people that are in the middle H1961 of her; and they shall become H802 as women: H2719 a sword H214 is on her treasures; H962 and they shall be robbed.
38 H2721 A drought H4325 is on her waters; H3001 and they shall be dried H776 up: for it is the land H6456 of graven H1984 images, and they are mad H367 on their idols.
39 H5921 Therefore H3651 H6728 the wild H6728 beasts H6728 of the desert H338 with the wild H338 beasts H339 of the islands H3427 shall dwell H1323 there, and the owls H3284 H3427 shall dwell H3808 therein: and it shall be no H5750 more H3427 inhabited H5331 for ever; H3808 neither H7931 shall it be dwelled H1755 in from generation H1755 to generation.
40 H430 As God H4114 overthrew H5467 Sodom H6017 and Gomorrah H7934 and the neighbor H5002 cities thereof, said H3068 the LORD; H3808 so shall no H376 man H3427 abide H8033 there, H3808 neither H1121 shall any son H120 of man H1481 dwell therein.
41 H2009 Behold, H5971 a people H935 shall come H6828 from the north, H1419 and a great H1471 nation, H7227 and many H4428 kings H5782 shall be raised H3411 up from the coasts H776 of the earth.
42 H2388 They shall hold H7198 the bow H3591 and the lance: H394 they are cruel, H7355 and will not show mercy: H6963 their voice H1993 shall roar H3220 like the sea, H7392 and they shall ride H5483 on horses, H6186 every one put in array, H376 like a man H4421 to the battle, H5921 against H1323 you, O daughter H894 of Babylon.
43 H4428 The king H894 of Babylon H8085 has heard H8088 the report H3027 of them, and his hands H7503 waxed feeble: H6869 anguish H2388 took hold H2427 of him, and pangs H3205 as of a woman in travail.
44 H2009 Behold, H5927 he shall come H738 up like a lion H1347 from the swelling H3383 of Jordan H5116 to the habitation H386 of the strong: H7280 but I will make them suddenly H7323 run H4310 away from her: and who H970 is a chosen H6485 man, that I may appoint H413 over H4310 her? for who H3644 is like H4310 me? and who H3259 will appoint H4310 me the time? and who H7462 is that shepherd H5975 that will stand H6440 before me?
45 H5921 Therefore H3651 H8085 hear H6098 you the counsel H3068 of the LORD, H3289 that he has taken H413 against H894 Babylon; H4284 and his purposes, H2803 that he has purposed H413 against H776 the land H3778 of the Chaldeans: H518 Surely H3808 H6810 the least H6629 of the flock H5498 shall draw H518 them out: surely H3808 H5116 he shall make their habitation H8074 desolate with them.
