This whole land will be left in ruins and will be a shocking sight, and the neighboring nations will serve the king of Babylonia for seventy years. 1
After that I will punish Babylonia and its king for their sin. I will destroy that country and leave it in ruins forever.
I will punish Babylonia with all the disasters that I threatened to bring on the nations when I spoke through Jeremiah - all the disasters recorded in this book.
I will pay the Babylonians back for what they have done, and many nations and great kings will make slaves of them.' "
