The Message (MSG) New International Version (NIV)
11 The whole landscape will be one vast wasteland. These countries will be in subjection to the king of Babylon for seventy years. 11 This whole country will become a desolate wasteland, and these nations will serve the king of Babylon seventy years.
12 "Once the seventy years is up, I'll punish the king of Babylon and the whole nation of Babylon for their sin. Then they'll be the wasteland. 12 "But when the seventy years are fulfilled, I will punish the king of Babylon and his nation, the land of the Babylonians, for their guilt," declares the LORD, "and will make it desolate forever.
13 Everything that I said I'd do to that country, I'll do - everything that's written in this book, everything Jeremiah preached against all the godless nations. 13 I will bring upon that land all the things I have spoken against it, all that are written in this book and prophesied by Jeremiah against all the nations.
14 Many nations and great kings will make slaves of the Babylonians, paying them back for everything they've done to others. They won't get by with anything." God's Decree. God Puts the Human Race on Trial 14 They themselves will be enslaved by many nations and great kings; I will repay them according to their deeds and the work of their hands."
