Babylon Judged for Sins against Israel

1 Thus says the LORD: "Behold, I am going to arouse against Babylon And against the inhabitants of aLeb-kamai bThe 1spirit of a destroyer. 2 "I will dispatch cforeigners to Babylon that they may 2winnow her And may devastate her land; For on every side they will be opposed to her In the day of her calamity. 3 "dLet not ehim who f3bends his bow gbend it, hNor let him rise up in his 4scale-armor; So do not spare her young men; Devote all her army to destruction. 4 "They will fall down islain in the land of the Chaldeans, And 5pierced through in their streets." 5 For 6neither Israel nor Judah has been jforsaken By his God, the LORD of hosts, Although their land is 7full of guilt kBefore the Holy One of Israel. 6 8Flee from the midst of Babylon, And each of you save his life! Do not be l9destroyed in her mpunishment, For this is the 10LORD'S time of vengeance; He is going to 11render recompense to her.
