Jeremiah 50

ECB(i) 1
The word Yah Veh words against Babel and against the land of the Kesediym by the hand of Yirme Yah the prophet. 2 Tell you among the goyim and have them hear; and lift an ensign: have them hear; and conceal not: say, Babel is captured, Bel is shamed, Merodach is broken: her idols are shamed; her idols are broken. 3 For from the north a goyim ascends against her who places her land desolate; and no one settles therein: they wander; they depart; - both humanity and animal. 4 In those days, and in that time, - an oracle of Yah Veh the sons of Yisra El come - they and the sons of Yah Hudah together coming and weeping: they come and seek Yah Veh their Elohim: 5 they ask the way to Siyon with their faces toward, Come; we join ourselves to Yah Veh in an eternal covenant, not forgotten. 6 My people became lost flocks their tenders strayed them, they apostatized them on the mountains: going from mountain to hill they forgot their repose. 7 All who find them devour them: and their tribulators say, We guilt not! - because they sinned against Yah Veh the habitation of rest of justness; - Yah Veh, the expectation of their fathers. 8 Wander from the midst of Babel and come from the land of the Kesediym; and be as the he goats at the face of the flocks. 9 For, behold, I waken and against Babel I ascend a congregation of great goyim from the north land: and they line up against her; from thence they capture her: their arrows as of a mighty discerner; no one returns in vain. 10 And Kesediym becomes a spoil: all who spoil her satiate - an oracle of Yah Veh 11 because you cheer - because you jump for joy O you plunderers of my inheritance, because you grow fat as the heifer at grass and resound as the mighty; 12 your mother shames mightily; she who birthed you blushes: behold, the backword of the goyim are a wilderness, a parch, and a plain: 13 because of the rage of Yah Veh it is not settled and becomes wholly desolate: every one who passes by Babel astonishes and hisses at all her wounds. 14 Line up against Babel, all around - all you who bend the bow: hand toss at her; spare no arrows: for she sinned against Yah Veh. 15 Shout against her all around: she gives her hand: her foundations fallen; her walls overthrown: for it is the avengement of Yah Veh: avenge on her; as she worked, work to her: 16 cut off the seeder from Babel; and he who manipulates the sickle in the time of harvest: at the face of the oppressing sword; every man faces to his people, and every man flees to his own land. 17 Yisra El is a scattered lamb; the lions drive him away: first the sovereign of Ashshur devours him; and last this Nebukadnets Tsar sovereign of Babel craunches his bones. 18 So thus says Yah Veh Sabaoth Elohim of Yisra El; Behold, I visit on the sovereign of Babel and his land, as I visited on the sovereign of Ashshur: 19 and I return Yisra El to his habitation of rest, and he tends on Karmel/orchard and Bashan, and his soul satiates on mount Ephrayim and Gilad. 20 In those days, and in that time, - an oracle of Yah Veh they seek the perversity of Yisra El, and there is none; and the sins of Yah Hudah, and they find them not: for I forgive them whom I leave remaining. 21 Ascend against the land of Merathayim, - against it, and against the settlers of Peqod: parch and devote after them - an oracle of Yah Veh and work according to all I misvahed you. 22 A voice of war is in the land, and of great breaking. 23 How the hammer of the whole earth is cut apart and broken! How Babel becomes a desolation among the goyim! 24 I lay a snare for you, and also capture you, O Babel, and you know not: you are found out and also apprehended because you throttled against Yah Veh. 25 Yah Veh opens his treasury and brings forth the instruments of his rage: for this is the work of Adonay Yah Veh Sabaoth in the land of the Kesediym. 26 Come against her from the end; open her granaries: raise her as heaps and devote her that there be no survivors: 27 parch all her bullocks; descend them to the slaughter. Ho to them! for their day is come - the time of their visitation. 28 The voice of them who flee and escape from the land of Babel, to tell in Siyon the avengement of Yah Veh our Elohim - the avengement of his manse. 29 Hearken the archers against Babel all you who bend the bow: encamp against it all around; that there be no escapees: shalam her according to her deeds; work to her according to all she worked: for she is proud against Yah Veh - against the Holy One of Yisra El. 30 So fell her youths in the broadways and sever all her men of war in that day - an oracle of Yah Veh. 31 Behold, I am against you, O Arrogance! - an oracle of Adonay Yah Veh Sabaoth for your day is come - to visit you: 32 and the arrogant to falter and fall with no one to raise him: and I kindle a fire in his cities, and it consumes all all around him. 33 Thus says Yah Veh Sabaoth; The sons of Yisra El and the sons of Yah Hudah are oppressed: and all who capture them hold them; they refuse to send them away. 34 Their Redeemer is strong; Yah Veh Sabaoth is his name: in pleading, he pleads their plea - to rest the land and quake the settlers of Babel. 35 A sword is on the Kesediym - an oracle of Yah Veh and on the settlers of Babel and on her governors and on her wise: 36 a sword is on their lies and they folly; a sword is on her mighty and they dismay; 37 a sword is on their horses and on their chariots and on all the comingled among her; and they become as women: a sword is on her treasures and they are plundered; 38 a parch is on her waters and they dry up; for it is the land of sculptiles and they halal bugaboos: 39 so the desert dwellers settle there with the island howlers; and the daughters of the owls settle therein: and it is neither settled any more in perpetuity; nor tabernacled in from generation to generation. 40 As Elohim overthrew Sedom and Amorah and the nearby tabernacles - an oracle of Yah Veh thus neither man settles there, nor any son of humanity sojourns therein. 41 Behold, a people come from the north even a great goyim, and many sovereigns waken from the flanks of the earth: 42 they hold the bow and the dart; they are cruel, and mercy not: their voice roars as the sea and they ride on horses - lined up against you, O daughter of Babel, as a man to the war. 43 The sovereign of Babel hears their report and he slackens his hands: tribulation takes hold of him and pangs as in birthing. 44 Behold, he ascends as a lion from the pomp of Yarden to the habitation of rest of the perennial: but I, in a blink, run them away from her. And who is chosen? I appoint over her! For who is like me? And who congregates with me? And who is that tender who stands at my face? 45 So hear the counsel Yah Veh counsels against Babel; and the fabrications he fabricates against the land of the Kesediym: surely the lesser of the flock drag them out: surely he desolates their habitation of rest with them. 46 At the voice of the apprehending of Babel the earth quakes; and the cry is heard among the goyim.
