This entire land will become a desolate wasteland. Israel and her neighboring lands will serve the king of Babylon for seventy years.
“Then, after the seventy years of captivity are over, I will punish the king of Babylon and his people for their sins,” says the LORD . “I will make the country of the Babylonians a wasteland forever.
I will bring upon them all the terrors I have promised in this book—all the penalties announced by Jeremiah against the nations.
Many nations and great kings will enslave the Babylonians, just as they enslaved my people. I will punish them in proportion to the suffering they cause my people.”
