The word that Jehovah spoke concerning Babylon, concerning a the land of the Chaldeans, through Jeremiah the prophet.
Declare ye among the nations, and publish, and lift up a banner; publish, conceal not! Say, Babylon is taken, Bel is put to shame, Merodach b is dismayed: her images are put to shame, her idols are dismayed. c3
For out of the north there cometh up a nation against her, which shall make her land desolate, and none shall dwell therein: both man and beast are fled; they are gone.
In those days, and at that time, saith Jehovah, the children of Israel shall come, they and the children of Judah together, going and weeping as they go, and shall seek Jehovah their God.
They shall inquire concerning Zion, with their faces thitherward, [saying,] Come, and let us join ourselves to Jehovah, in an everlasting covenant that shall not be forgotten.
My people are lost sheep; their shepherds have caused them to go astray, they turned them away on the mountains: d they went from mountain to hill, they forgot their resting-place.
