1 H1697 The word H3068 that Yahweh H1696 spoke H894 concerning Babylon, H776 concerning the land H3778 of the Chaldeans, H3027 by H3414 Jeremiah H5030 the prophet.
2 H5046 Declare H1471 among the nations H8085 and publish, H5375 and set up H5251 a standard; H8085 publish, H3582 and don't conceal: H559 say, H894 Babylon H3920 is taken, H1078 Bel H3001 is disappointed, H4781 Merodach H2865 is dismayed; H6091 her images H3001 are disappointed, H1544 her idols H2865 are dismayed.
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 dwell H5110 therein: they are fled, H1980 they are gone, H120 both man H929 and animal.
4 H3117 In those days, H6256 and in that time, H5002 says H3068 Yahweh, H1121 the children H3478 of Israel H935 shall come, H1121 they and the children H3063 of Judah H3162 together; H1980 they shall go H3212 on their way H1058 weeping, H1245 and shall seek H3068 Yahweh H430 their God.
5 H7592 They shall inquire H1870 concerning H6726 Zion H6440 with their faces H2008 turned H935 toward it, saying, Come, H3867 and join H3068 yourselves to Yahweh H5769 in an everlasting 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 resting place.
7 H4672 All who found H398 them have devoured H6862 them; and their adversaries H559 said, H816 We are not guilty, H2398 because they have sinned H3068 against Yahweh, H5116 the habitation H6664 of righteousness, H3068 even Yahweh, 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 male goats H6440 before H6629 the flocks.
9 H5927 For, behold, I will stir up H5927 and cause to come up H894 against Babylon H6951 a company 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 an expert mighty H7919 man; H7725 none shall return H7387 in vain.
10 H3778 Chaldea H7998 shall be a prey: H7997 all who prey H7646 on her shall be satisfied, H5002 says H3068 Yahweh.
11 H8055 Because you are glad, H8055 because you rejoice, H8154 O you who plunder H5159 my heritage, H6335 because you are wanton H5697 as a heifer H1877 that treads out the grain, H6670 and neigh H47 as strong horses;
12 H517 your mother H3966 shall be utterly H954 disappointed; H3205 she who bore H2659 you shall be confounded: H319 behold, she shall be the least H1471 of the nations, H4057 a wilderness, H6723 a dry land, H6160 and a desert.
13 H7110 Because of the wrath H3068 of Yahweh H3427 she shall not be inhabited, H8077 but she shall be wholly desolate: H5674 everyone who goes H894 by Babylon H8074 shall be astonished, H8319 and hiss H4347 at all her plagues.
14 H6186 Set yourselves in array H894 against Babylon H5439 all around, H1869 all you who bend H7198 the bow; H3034 shoot H2550 at her, spare H2671 no arrows: H2398 for she has sinned H3068 against Yahweh.
15 H7321 Shout H5439 against her all around: H5414 she has submitted H3027 herself; H803 her bulwarks H5307 are fallen, H2346 her walls H2040 are thrown down; H5360 for it is the vengeance H3068 of Yahweh: H5358 take vengeance H6213 on her; as she has done, H6213 do to her.
16 H3772 Cut off H2232 the sower H894 from Babylon, H8610 and him who 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 everyone H5971 to his people, H5127 and they shall flee H376 everyone H776 to his own land.
17 H3478 Israel H6340 is a hunted H7716 sheep; H738 the lions H5080 have driven him away: H7223 first, H4428 the king H804 of Assyria H398 devoured H314 him; and now at last H5019 Nebuchadnezzar H4428 king H894 of Babylon H6105 has broken his bones.
18 H559 Therefore thus says H3068 Yahweh H6635 of Armies, 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 I will bring H3478 Israel H7725 again H5116 to his pasture, H7462 and he shall feed H3760 on Carmel H1316 and Bashan, H5315 and his soul H7646 shall be satisfied H2022 on the hills H669 of Ephraim H1568 and in Gilead.
20 H3117 In those days, H6256 and in that time, H5002 says H3068 Yahweh, 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 leave as a remnant.
21 H5927 Go up H776 against the land H4850 of Merathaim, H3427 even against it, and against the inhabitants H6489 of Pekod: H2717 kill H2763 and utterly destroy H310 after H5002 them, says H3068 Yahweh, 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 apart 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 Babylon, H3045 and you weren't aware: H4672 you are found, H8610 and also caught, H1624 because you have striven H3068 against Yahweh.
25 H3068 Yahweh H6605 has opened H214 his armory, H3318 and has brought forth H3627 the weapons H2195 of his indignation; H136 for the Lord, H136 Yahweh H6635 of Armies, H4399 has a work H776 to do in the land H3778 of the Chaldeans.
26 H935 Come H7093 against her from the utmost 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 bulls; H3381 let them go down H2874 to the slaughter: H1945 woe H3117 to them! for their day H935 has come, H6256 the time H6486 of their visitation.
28 H6963 The voice H5127 of those who flee H6405 and escape out H776 of the land H894 of Babylon, H5046 to declare H6726 in Zion H5360 the vengeance H3068 of Yahweh H430 our God, H5360 the vengeance H1964 of his temple.
29 H8085 Call together H7228 the archers H894 against Babylon, H1869 all those who bend H7198 the bow; H2583 encamp H5439 against her all around; H6413 let none of it escape: H7999 recompense H6467 her according to her work; H6213 according to all that she has done, H6213 do H2102 to her; for she has been proud H3068 against Yahweh, H6918 against the Holy One H3478 of Israel.
30 H970 Therefore her young men H5307 will fall H7339 in her streets, H582 and all her men H4421 of war H1826 will be brought to silence H3117 in that day, H5002 says H3068 Yahweh.
31 H2087 Behold, I am against you, you proud H5002 one, says H136 the Lord, H3069 Yahweh H6635 of Armies; H3117 for your day H935 has come, H6256 the time H6485 that I will visit you.
32 H2087 The proud H3782 one 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 who are around him.
33 H559 Thus says H3068 Yahweh H6635 of Armies: H1121 The children H3478 of Israel H1121 and the children H3063 of Judah H6231 are oppressed H3162 together; H7617 and all who took them captive H2388 hold them fast; H3985 they refuse H7971 to let them go.
34 H1350 Their Redeemer H2389 is strong; H3068 Yahweh H6635 of Armies H8034 is his name: H7378 he will thoroughly H7378 plead H7379 their cause, H7280 that he may give rest H776 to the earth, H7264 and disquiet H3427 the inhabitants H894 of Babylon.
35 H2719 A sword H3778 is on the Chaldeans, H5002 says H3068 Yahweh, 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 boasters, H2973 and they shall become fools; H2719 a sword H1368 is on her mighty men, H2865 and they shall be dismayed.
37 H2719 A sword H5483 is on their horses, H7393 and on their chariots, H6153 and on all the mixed people H8432 who are in the midst H802 of her; and they shall become 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 up; H776 for it is a land H6456 of engraved images, H1984 and they are mad H367 over idols.
39 H6728 Therefore the wild animals of the desert H338 with the wolves H3427 shall dwell H1323 there, and the ostriches H3427 shall dwell H3427 therein: and it shall be no more inhabited H5331 forever; H7931 neither shall it be lived H1755 in from generation H1755 to generation.
40 H430 As when God H4114 overthrew H5467 Sodom H6017 and Gomorrah H7934 and the neighbor H5002 cities of it, says H3068 Yahweh, H376 so shall no man H3427 dwell H1121 there, neither shall any son H120 of man H1481 live therein.
41 H5971 Behold, a people H935 comes H6828 from the north; H1419 and a great H1471 nation H7227 and many H4428 kings H5782 shall be stirred up H3411 from the uttermost parts H776 of the earth.
42 H2388 They lay hold H7198 on bow H3591 and spear; H394 they are cruel, H7355 and have no mercy; H6963 their voice H1993 roars H3220 like the sea; H7392 and they ride H5483 on horses, H6186 everyone set in array, H376 as a man H4421 to the battle, H1323 against you, daughter H894 of Babylon.
43 H4428 The king H894 of Babylon H8085 has heard H8088 the news H3027 of them, and his hands H7503 wax feeble: H6869 anguish H2388 has taken hold H2427 of him, pains H3205 as of a woman in labor.
44 H5927 Behold, the enemy shall come up H738 like a lion H1347 from the pride H3383 of the Jordan H386 against the strong H5116 habitation: H7280 for I will suddenly H7323 make H7323 them run away H977 from it; and whoever is chosen, H6485 him will I appoint H3259 over it: for who is like me? and who will appoint me a time? H7462 and who is the shepherd H5975 who can stand H6440 before me?
45 H8085 Therefore hear H6098 the counsel H3068 of Yahweh, 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: H5498 Surely they shall drag them away, H6810 even the little H6629 ones of the flock; H5116 surely he shall make their habitation H8074 desolate over them.
