Concerning Kedar and the kingdoms of Hazor, which Babylon's King Nebuchadnezzar defeated, the LORD proclaims: Get ready to attack Kedar; destroy the people from the east!
Seizea their tents and their flocks, their belongings and all their goods. Take off with their camels and shout as you go: "Panic Lurks Everywhere!"
Run away; take cover, you people of Hazor, declares the LORD. Babylon's King Nebuchadnezzar has taken counsel and devised a plan against you.
Get ready to attack a nation that feels safe and secure, declares the LORD, one without barred gates that lives by itself.
Their camels will become plunder; their many cattle will be pillaged. I will scatter to the winds those who are clean-shaven,b and I will bring disaster on them from every side, declares the LORD.
Hazor will become a den for wild dogs, a wilderness forever. No one will live there; no human will dwell in it.
