They are armed with bows25 and spears; they are cruel26 and without mercy.27 They sound like the roaring sea28 as they ride on their horses; they come like men in battle formation to attack you, O Daughter of Babylon.29
Like a lion coming up from Jordan's thickets32 to a rich pastureland, I will chase Babylon from its land in an instant. Who is the chosen33 one I will appoint for this? Who is like me and who can challenge me?34 And what shepherd can stand against me?"
Therefore, hear what the LORD has planned against Babylon, what he has purposed35 against the land of the Babylonians:36 The young of the flock will be dragged away; he will completely destroy their pasture because of them.
