1 H1697 The word H3068 that the Lord H1696 spoke H894 against Babylon H776 and against the land H3778 of the Chaldeans H3027 by H3414 Jeremiah H5030 the prophet.
2 H5046 Declare H1471 you among the nations, H8085 and publish, H5375 and set up H5251 a standard; H8085 publish, H3582 and conceal H559 not: say, H894 Babylon H3920 is taken, H1078 Bel H3001 is confounded, H4781 Merodach H2865 is broken in pieces; H6091 her idols H3001 are confounded, H1544 her images H2865 are broken in pieces.
3 H6828 For out of the north H5927 there comes up H1471 a nation H7896 against her, which shall make H776 her land H8047 desolate, H3427 and none shall live H5110 in it: they shall remove, H1980 they shall depart, H120 both man H929 and animal.
4 H3117 In those days, H6256 and in that time, H5002 says H3068 the Lord, H1121 the sons H3478 of Israel H935 shall come, H1121 they and the sons 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 turned toward it, 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 H6 have been lost H6629 sheep: H7462 their shepherds H8582 have caused them to go astray, H7725 they have turned them away H2022 on the mountains: H1980 they have gone H2022 from mountain H1389 to hill, H7911 they have forgotten H7258 their restingplace.
7 H4672 All that found H398 them have devoured H6862 them: and their adversaries H559 said, H816 We offend H2398 not, because 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 Flee H8432 out of the midst H894 of Babylon, H3318 and go forth H776 out of the land H3778 of the Chaldeans, H6260 and be as the he goats H6440 before H6629 the flocks.
9 H5782 For, behold, I will raise H5927 and cause to come up H894 against Babylon H6951 an assembly H1419 of great H1471 nations H6828 from the north H776 country: H6186 and they shall set themselves in array H3920 against her; from there she shall be taken: H2671 their arrows H1368 shall be as of a mighty H7919 expert man; H7725 none shall return H7387 in vain.
10 H3778 And Chaldea H7998 shall be a plunder: H7997 all that plunder H7646 her shall be satisfied, H5002 says H3068 the Lord.
11 H8055 Because you were glad, H5937 because you rejoiced, H8154 O you destroyers H5159 of my heritage, H6335 because you are grown fat H5697 as the heifer H1877 at grass, H6670 and bellow H47 as bulls;
12 H517 Your mother H3966 shall be severely H954 confounded; H3205 she that bore H2659 you shall be ashamed: H319 behold, the least H1471 of the nations H4057 shall be a wilderness, H6723 a dry land, H6160 and a desert.
13 H7110 Because of the wrath H3068 of the Lord H3427 it shall not be inhabited, H8077 but it shall be wholly desolate: H5674 every one that goes H894 by Babylon H8074 shall be astonished, H8319 and hiss H4347 at all her plagues.
14 H6186 Put yourselves in array H894 against Babylon H5439 round about: H1869 all you that bend H7198 the bow, H3034 shoot H2550 at her, spare H2671 no arrows: H2398 for she has sinned H3068 against the Lord.
15 H7321 Shout H5439 against her round about: H5414 she has given H3027 her hand: H803 her foundations H5307 are fallen, H2346 her walls H2040 are thrown down: H5360 for it is the vengeance H3068 of the Lord: H5358 take vengeance H6213 upon her; as she has done, H6213 do unto her.
16 H3772 Cut off H2232 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 one H5971 to his people, H5127 and they shall flee H376 every one H776 to his own land.
17 H3478 Israel H6340 is a scattered H7716 sheep; H738 the lions H5080 have driven him away: H7223 first H4428 the king H804 of Assyria H398 has devoured H314 him; and last H5019 this Nebuchadrezzar H4428 king H894 of Babylon H6105 has broken his bones.
18 H559 Therefore thus says H3068 the Lord H6635 of hosts, H430 the God H3478 of Israel; H6485 Behold, 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 upon mountain H669 Ephraim H1568 and Gilead.
20 H3117 In those days, H6256 and in that time, H5002 says H3068 the Lord, H5771 the iniquity H3478 of Israel H1245 shall be sought for, H2403 and there shall be none; and the sins H3063 of Judah, H4672 and they shall not be found: H5545 for I will pardon H7604 them whom I reserve.
21 H5927 Go up H776 against the land H4850 of Merathaim, H3427 even against it, and against the inhabitants H6489 of Pekod: H2717 waste H2763 and utterly destroy H310 after H5002 them, says H3068 the Lord, H6213 and do H6680 according to all that I have commanded you.
23 H6360 How is the hammer H776 of the whole earth H1438 cut asunder H7665 and broken! H894 how is Babylon H8047 become a desolation H1471 among the nations!
24 H3369 I have laid a snare H3920 for you, and you are also taken, H894 O Babylon, H3045 and you were not aware: H4672 you are found, H8610 and also caught, H1624 because you have striven H3068 against the Lord.
25 H3068 The Lord H6605 has opened H214 his armory, H3318 and has brought forth H3627 the weapons H2195 of his indignation: H4399 for this 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 farthest border, H6605 open H3965 her storehouses: H5549 cast her up H6194 as heaps, H2763 and destroy her utterly: H7611 let nothing of her be left.
27 H2717 Kill H6499 all her bullocks; H3381 let them go down H2874 to the slaughter: H1945 woe H3117 unto them! for their day H935 is come, H6256 the time H6486 of their visitation.
28 H6963 The voice H5127 of them that flee H6405 and escape out H776 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 together H7228 the archers H894 against Babylon: H1869 all you that bend H7198 the bow, H2583 camp H5439 against it round about; H6413 let none there escape: H7999 recompense H6467 her according to her work; H6213 according to all that she has done, H6213 do H2102 unto her: for she has been proud H3068 against the Lord, H6918 against the Holy One H3478 of Israel.
30 H970 Therefore shall her young men H5307 fall H7339 in the streets, H582 and all her men H4421 of war H1826 shall be cut off H3117 in that day, H5002 says H3068 the Lord.
31 H2087 Behold, I am against you, O you most proud, H5002 says 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, H6965 and none shall raise him up: H3341 and I will kindle H784 a fire H5892 in his cities, H398 and it shall devour H5439 all round about him.
33 H559 Thus says H3068 the Lord H6635 of hosts; H1121 The sons H3478 of Israel H1121 and the sons H3063 of Judah H6231 were oppressed H3162 together: H7617 and all that took them captives H2388 held them fast; H3985 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 throughly H7378 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 upon the Chaldeans, H5002 says H3068 the Lord, H3427 and upon the inhabitants H894 of Babylon, H8269 and upon her princes, H2450 and upon her wise men.
36 H2719 A sword H907 is upon the liars; H2973 and they shall dote: H2719 a sword H1368 is upon her mighty men; H2865 and they shall be dismayed.
37 H2719 A sword H5483 is upon their horses, H7393 and upon their chariots, H6153 and upon all the mingled people H8432 that are in the midst H802 of her; and they shall become as women: H2719 a sword H214 is upon her treasures; H962 and they shall be robbed.
38 H2721 A drought H4325 is upon her waters; H3001 and they shall be dried up: H776 for it is the land H6456 of engraved images, H1984 and they are mad H367 upon their idols.
39 H6728 Therefore the wild animals of the desert H338 with the wild animals of the islands H3427 shall live H1323 there, and the owls H3427 shall live H3427 in it: and it shall be no more inhabited H5331 for ever; H7931 neither shall it be lived H1755 in from generation H1755 to generation.
40 H430 As God H4114 overthrew H5467 Sodom H6017 and Gomorrah H7934 and the neighbor H5002 cities there, says H3068 the Lord; H376 so shall no man H3427 stay H1121 there, neither shall any son H120 of man H1481 live in it.
41 H5971 Behold, a people H935 shall come H6828 from the north, H1419 and a great H1471 nation, H7227 and many H4428 kings H5782 shall be raised up H3411 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 upon horses, H6186 every one put in array, H376 like a man H4421 to the battle, H1323 against 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 grew feeble: H6869 anguish H2388 took hold H2427 of him, and pangs H3205 as of a woman in hardship.
44 H5927 Behold, he shall come up H738 like a lion H1347 from the swelling H3383 of Jordan H5116 unto the habitation H386 of the strong: H7323 but I will make H7280 them suddenly H7323 run away H977 from her: and who is a chosen H6485 man, that I may appoint H3259 over her? for who is like me? and who will appoint me the time? H7462 and who is that shepherd H5975 that will stand H6440 before me?
45 H8085 Therefore hear H6098 you the counsel H3068 of the Lord, H3289 that he has taken H894 against Babylon; H4284 and his purposes, H2803 that he has purposed H776 against the land H3778 of the Chaldeans: H6810 Surely the least H6629 of the flock H5498 shall draw them out: H5116 surely he shall make their habitation H8074 desolate with them.
