Jeremiah 51:1-10 (New International Version)

View In My Bible
1 This is what the LORD says: "See, I will stir1 up the spirit of a destroyer against Babylon2 and the people of Leb Kamai.a 2 I will send foreigners3 to Babylon to winnow4 her and to devastate her land; they will oppose her on every side in the day5 of her disaster. 3 Let not the archer string his bow,6 nor let him put on his armor.7 Do not spare her young men; completely destroyb her army. 4 They will fall8 down slain in Babylon,c fatally wounded in her streets.9 5 For Israel and Judah have not been forsaken10 by their God, the LORD Almighty, though their landd is full of guilt11 before the Holy One of Israel. 6 "Flee12 from Babylon! Run for your lives! Do not be destroyed because of her sins.13 It is time14 for the LORD's vengeance;15 he will pay16 her what she deserves. 7 Babylon was a gold cup17 in the LORD's hand; she made the whole earth drunk. The nations drank her wine; therefore they have now gone mad. 8 Babylon will suddenly fall18 and be broken. Wail over her! Get balm19 for her pain; perhaps she can be healed. 9 " 'We would have healed Babylon, but she cannot be healed; let us leave20 her and each go to his own land, for her judgment21 reaches to the skies, it rises as high as the clouds.' 10 " 'The LORD has vindicated22 us; come, let us tell in Zion what the LORD our God has done.'23
