This message was given concerning Kedar and the kingdoms of Hazor, which were attacked by King Nebuchadnezzar a of Babylon.This is what the LORD says: "Advance against Kedar! Blot out the warriors from the East!
Their flocks and tents will be captured, and their household goods and camels will be taken away. Everywhere shouts of panic will be heard: 'We are terrorized at every turn!'
Flee for your lives," says the LORD. "Hide yourselves in deep caves, you people of Hazor, for King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon has plotted against you and is preparing to destroy you.
"Go up and attack those self-sufficient nomadic tribes," says the LORD. "They live alone in the desert without walls or gates.
Their camels and cattle will all be yours. I will scatter to the winds these people who live in distant places. b I will bring calamity upon them from every direction," says the LORD.
"Hazor will be inhabited by jackals, and it will be desolate forever. No one will live there anymore."
