411"Behold, a people comes from the north; a mighty nation and many kings are stirring from the farthest parts of the earth.
They lay hold of bow and spear; they are cruel and have no mercy. The sound of them is like the roaring of the sea; they ride on horses, arrayed as a man for battle against you, O daughter of Babylon!
"The king of Babylon heard the report of them, and his hands fell helpless; anguish seized him, pain as of a woman in labor.
442"Behold, like a lion coming up from the thicket of the Jordan against a perennial pasture, I will suddenly make them run away from her, and I will appoint over her whomever I choose. For who is like me? Who will summon me? What shepherd 3can stand before me?
Therefore hear 4the plan that the LORD has made against Babylon, 5and the purposes that he has formed against the land of the Chaldeans: 6Surely the little ones of their flock shall be dragged away; surely their fold shall be appalled at their fate.
467At the sound of the capture of Babylon the earth shall tremble, and her cry shall be heard among the nations."
