1 H4853 The burden H4057 of the desert H3220 of the sea H5492 . As whirlwinds H5045 in the south H2498 [H8800] pass H935 [H8802] through; so it cometh H4057 from the desert H3372 [H8737] , from a terrible H776 land.
2 H7186 A grievous H2380 vision H5046 [H8717] is declared H898 [H8802] to me; the treacherous dealer H898 [H8802] dealeth treacherously H7703 [H8802] , and the spoiler H7703 [H8802] plundereth H5927 [H8798] . Go up H5867 , O Elam H6696 [H8798] : besiege H4074 , O Media H585 ; all its sighing H7673 [H8689] have I made to cease.
3 H4975 Therefore are my loins H4390 [H8804] filled H2479 with pain H6735 : pangs H270 [H8804] have taken hold H6735 upon me, as the pangs H3205 [H8802] of a woman that travaileth H5753 [H8738] : I was bowed down H8085 [H8800] at the hearing H926 [H8738] of it; I was dismayed H7200 [H8800] at the seeing of it.
4 H3824 My heart H8582 [H8804] panted H6427 , fearfulness H1204 [H8765] terrified H5399 me: the night H2837 of my pleasure H7760 [H8804] hath he turned H2731 into fear to me.
5 H6186 [H8800] Prepare H7979 the table H6822 [H8800] , watch H6844 in the watchtower H398 [H8800] , eat H8354 [H8800] , drink H6965 [H8798] : arise H8269 , ye princes H4886 [H8798] , and anoint H4043 the shield.
6 H136 For thus hath the Lord H559 [H8804] said H3212 [H8798] to me, Go H5975 [H8685] , set H6822 [H8764] a watchman H5046 [H8686] , let him declare H7200 [H8799] what he seeth.
7 H7200 [H8804] And he saw H7393 a chariot H6776 with a couple H6571 of horsemen H7393 , a chariot H2543 of donkeys H7393 , and a chariot H1581 of camels H7181 [H8689] ; and he hearkened H7182 diligently H7227 with much H7182 heed:
8 H7121 [H8799] And he cried H738 , A lion H136 : My lord H5975 [H8802] , I stand H8548 continually H4707 upon the watchtower H3119 in the daytime H5324 [H8737] , and I am set H4931 in my post H3915 whole nights:
9 H935 [H8802] And, behold, here cometh H7393 a chariot H376 of men H6776 , with a couple H6571 of horsemen H6030 [H8799] . And he answered H559 [H8799] and said H894 , Babylon H5307 [H8804] is fallen H5307 [H8804] , is fallen H6456 ; and all the graven images H430 of her gods H7665 [H8765] he hath broken H776 to the ground.
10 H4098 O my threshing H1121 , and the grain H1637 of my floor H8085 [H8804] : that which I have heard H3068 from the LORD H6635 of hosts H430 , the God H3478 of Israel H5046 [H8689] , have I declared to you.
11 H4853 The burden H1746 of Dumah H7121 [H8802] . He calleth H8165 to me out of Seir H8104 [H8802] , Watchman H3915 , what of the night H8104 [H8802] ? Watchman H3915 , what of the night?
12 H8104 [H8802] The watchman H559 [H8804] said H1242 , The morning H857 [H8804] cometh H3915 , and also the night H1158 [H8799] : if ye will enquire H1158 [H8798] , enquire H7725 [H8798] ye: return H857 [H8798] , come.
13 H4853 The burden H6152 upon Arabia H3293 . In the forest H6152 in Arabia H3885 [H8799] shall ye lodge H736 , O ye travelling companies H1720 of Dedanim.
14 H3427 [H8802] The inhabitants H776 of the land H8485 of Tema H857 [H8689] brought H4325 water H7125 [H8800] to him H6771 that was thirsty H6923 [H8765] , they met H3899 with their bread H5074 [H8802] him that fled.
15 H5074 [H8804] For they fled H6440 from H2719 the swords H6440 , from H5203 [H8803] the drawn H2719 sword H6440 , and from H1869 [H8803] the bent H7198 bow H6440 , and from H3514 the grievousness H4421 of war.
16 H136 For thus hath the Lord H559 [H8804] said H8141 to me, Within a year H8141 , according to the years H7916 of an hireling H3519 , and all the glory H6938 of Kedar H3615 [H8804] shall fail:
