Prophecy against Babylon

1 The word which the LORD spoke concerning 1Babylon, the land of the Chaldeans, through Jeremiah the prophet: 2 "2Declare and proclaim among the nations. Proclaim it and 3lift up a standard. Do not conceal it but say, '4Babylon has been captured, 5Bel has been put to shame, aMarduk has been bshattered; Her 6images have been put to shame, her idols have been shattered.' 3 "For a nation has come up against her out of the 7north; it will make her land 8an object of horror, and there will be 9no inhabitant in it. Both man and beast have wandered off, they have gone away! 4 "In those days and at that time," declares the LORD, "the sons of Israel will come, both they and the sons of Judah 10as well; they will go along 11weeping as they go, and it will be 12the LORD their God they will seek. 5 "They will 13ask for the way to Zion, turning their faces cin its direction; dthey ewill come that they may join themselves to the LORD in an 14everlasting covenant that will not be forgotten. 6 "My people have become 15lost sheep; 16Their shepherds have led them astray. They have made them turn aside on the 17mountains; They have gone along from mountain to hill And have forgotten their 18resting place.
