This whole land will become a desolate ruin, and these nations will serve the king of Babylon for 70 years.a12
When the 70 years are completed, I will punish the king of Babylon and that nation'-[this is] the Lord's declaration-'the land of the Chaldeans, for their guilt, and I will make it a ruin forever.
I will bring on that land all My words I have spoken against it, all that is written in this book that Jeremiah prophesied against all the nations.
For many nations and great kings will enslave them, and I will repay them according to their deedsb and the work of their hands.' "
