Complete Jewish Bible (CJB) New International Version (NIV)
1 ADONAI says this: "Against Bavel and those living in Lev-Kamai I will stir up a destructive wind. 1 This is what the LORD says: "See, I will stir up the spirit of a destroyer against Babylon and the people of Leb Kamai.
2 Against Bavel I will send foreigners to winnow her and leave her land empty. They will besiege her from every side on the day of disaster. 2 I will send foreigners to Babylon to winnow her and to devastate her land; they will oppose her on every side in the day of her disaster.
3 Let the archer draw his bow, let him flaunt his coat of mail; do not spare her young men, completely destroy her whole army. 3 Let not the archer string his bow, nor let him put on his armor. Do not spare her young men; completely destroy her army.
4 In the land of the Kasdim the slain will fall, those thrust through [by the sword] in her streets. 4 They will fall down slain in Babylon, fatally wounded in her streets.
5 Isra'el and Y'hudah are not left widowed of their God, ADONAI-Tzva'ot; but the land of [the Kasdim] is full of guilt before the Holy One of Isra'el." 5 For Israel and Judah have not been forsaken by their God, the LORD Almighty, though their land is full of guilt before the Holy One of Israel.
6 Flee from Bavel, let each one save his life! Don't perish because of her guilt. For the time has come for the vengeance of ADONAI; he will repay her what she deserves. 6 "Flee from Babylon! Run for your lives! Do not be destroyed because of her sins. It is time for the LORD's vengeance; he will pay her what she deserves.
