Jeremiah 51:19-29 (New International Version)

View In My Bible
19 He who is the Portion1 of Jacob is not like these, for he is the Maker of all things, including the tribe of his inheritance2-- the LORD Almighty is his name. 20 "You are my war club,3 my weapon for battle-- with you I shatter4 nations,5 with you I destroy kingdoms, 21 with you I shatter horse and rider,6 with you I shatter chariot7 and driver, 22 with you I shatter man and woman, with you I shatter old man and youth, with you I shatter young man and maiden,8 23 with you I shatter shepherd and flock, with you I shatter farmer and oxen, with you I shatter governors and officials.9 24 "Before your eyes I will repay10 Babylon11 and all who live in Babyloniaa for all the wrong they have done in Zion," declares the LORD. 25 "I am against12 you, O destroying mountain, you who destroy the whole earth,"13 declares the LORD. "I will stretch out my hand14 against you, roll you off the cliffs, and make you a burned-out mountain.15 26 No rock will be taken from you for a cornerstone, nor any stone for a foundation, for you will be desolate16 forever," declares the LORD. 27 "Lift up a banner17 in the land! Blow the trumpet among the nations! Prepare the nations for battle against her; summon against her these kingdoms:18 Ararat,19 Minni and Ashkenaz.20 Appoint a commander against her; send up horses like a swarm of locusts.21 28 Prepare the nations for battle against her-- the kings of the Medes,22 their governors and all their officials, and all the countries they rule.23 29 The land trembles24 and writhes, for the LORD's purposes25 against Babylon stand-- to lay waste26 the land of Babylon so that no one will live there.27
