|The Message (MSG)
||New International Version (NIV)
4 you can amuse yourselves by taking up this satire, a taunt against the king of Babylon: Can you believe it? The tyrant is gone! The tyranny is over!
4 you will take up this taunt against the king of Babylon: How the oppressor has come to an end! How his fury has ended!
