Jeremiah 50:38

38 A drought against her waters, that they may be dried up! For it is a land of images, and they go mad over idols.

Jeremiah 50:38 In-Context

36 A sword against the diviners, so that they may become fools! A sword against her warriors, so that they may be destroyed!
37 A sword against her horses and against her chariots, and against all the foreign troops in her midst, so that they may become women! A sword against all her treasures, that they may be plundered!
38 A drought against her waters, that they may be dried up! For it is a land of images, and they go mad over idols.
39 Therefore wild animals shall live with hyenas in Babylon, and ostriches shall inhabit her; she shall never again be peopled, or inhabited for all generations.
40 As when God overthrew Sodom and Gomorrah and their neighbors, says the Lord, so no one shall live there, nor shall anyone settle in her.
