Chapter 51. Thus says the Lord Behold I will raise up against Babylon Against those who dwell in lebkamai a Destroying wind And I will send winnowers to Babylon who Shall winnow her and empty her land For in the day of Doom they shall be Against her all around Against her let the Archer Bend his bow And lift himself up against her in his Armor Do not spare her young men utterly Destroy all her Army Thus the slain shall fall in the land of The Chaldeans and those thrust through In her streets For Israel is not forsaken nor Judah by His God the Lord of hosts though their Land was filled with sin against the Holy One of Israel Flee from the midst of Babylon And everyone safe is life Do not be cut off in her iniquity For this is the time of the Lord's Vengeance He shall recompense her Babylon was a golden cup in the Lord's Hand that made all the Earth drunk The Nations drank her wine Therefore the nations are deranged Babylon has suddenly fallen and been Destroyed Wail for her take a balm for her pain

Perhaps she may be healed We would have healed Babylon but she is Not healed Forsake her and let us go everyone to His own country For her judgment reaches to heaven and Is lifted up to the skies The Lord has revealed our righteousness Come and let us declare in Zion the work Of the Lord our God Make the arrows bright Gather the shields The Lord has raised up the spirit of the Kings of the medes For his plan is against Babylon to Destroy it because it is the Vengeance Of the Lord the Vengeance for his Temple Set up the standard on the walls of Babylon make the guard strong set up the Watchmen prepare the ambushes For the Lord has both devised and done What he spoke against the inhabitants of Babylon O you who dwell by many Waters abundant In Treasures Your end has come The measure of your covetousness The Lord of hosts has sworn by himself Surely I will fill you with men as with Locusts and they shall lift up a shout Against you He has made the Earth by his power He has established the World by his Wisdom and stretched out the Heaven by

His understanding When he utters his voice there is a Multitude of waters in the heavens He causes the vapors to ascend from the Ends of the Earth He makes Lightnings for the rain he Brings the wind out of his treasuries Everyone is dull-hearted without Knowledge Every metalsmith is put to shame by the Carved image For his molded image is falsehood and There is no breath in them They are futile a work of errors In the time of their punishment they Shall Perish The portion of Jacob is not like them For he is the maker of all things And Israel is the tribe of his Inheritance The Lord of hosts is his name You are my battle acts and weapons of War For with you I will break the nation in Pieces with you I will destroy kingdoms With you I will break in pieces the Horse and its Rider with you I will Break in pieces The Chariot and its Rider With you also I will break in pieces man And woman With you I will break in pieces old and Young With you I will break in pieces the

Young man and the Maiden with you also I Will break in pieces the shepherd and His flock With you I will break in pieces the Farmer and his yoke of oxen and with you I will break in pieces Governors and Rulers And I will repay Babylon and all the Inhabitants of chaldea for all the evil They have done in Zion in your sight Says the Lord Behold I am against you o destroying Mountain who destroys all the Earth says The Lord And I will stretch out my hand against You roll you down from the rocks and Make you a burnt Mountain They shall not take from you a stone for A corner nor a stone for a foundation But you shall be desolate forever says The Lord Set up a banner in the land Blow the trumpet among the Nations Prepare the nations against her call the Kingdoms together against her Ararat minai and ashkenaz A pointer General against her Caused the horses to come up like the Bristling locusts Prepare against her the nations with the Kings of the medes its Governors and all Its rulers all the land of his Dominion And the land will tremble and sorrow For every purpose of the Lord shall be

Performed against Babylon To make the land of Babylon a desolation Without inhabitant The Mighty Men of Babylon have ceased Fighting They have remained in their strongholds Their might has failed they became like Women They have burned her Dwelling Places the Bars of her gate are broken One Runner will run to meet another and One Messenger to meet another to show The king of Babylon that his city is Taken on all sides the passages are Blocked the Reeds they have burned with Fire and the men of War are terrified For thus says the Lord of hosts the god Of Israel The daughter of Babylon is like a Threshing floor When it is time to thresh her Yet a little while and the time of her Harvest will come Nebuchadnezzar the king of Babylon has Devoured me He has crushed me he has made me an Empty vessel he has swallowed me up like A monster He has filled his stomach with my Delicacies he has spit me out Let the violence done to me and my flesh Be upon Babylon The inhabitant of Zion will say And my blood be upon the inhabitants of

Chaldea Jerusalem will say Therefore thus says the Lord Behold I will plead your case and take Vengeance for you I will dry up her sea and make her Springs dry Babylon shall become a heap a dwelling Place for jackals an astonishment and a Hissing without an inhabitant They shall Roar together like lions they Shall growl like lions whelps In their excitement I will prepare their Feasts I will make them drunk but they May rejoice and sleep a Perpetual sleep And not awake says the Lord I will bring them down like Lambs to the Slaughter like Rams with male goats Oh how shisha is taken oh how the praise Of the whole earth is seized How Babylon has become desolate among The Nations The sea has come up over Babylon She is covered with the multitude of its Waves Her cities are a desolation A dry land and a wilderness A land where no one dwells through which No son of man passes I will punish Belle in Babylon and I Will bring out of his mouth what he has Swallowed And the Nations shall not stream to him Anymore

Yes the wall of Babylon shall fall My people go out of the midst of her And let everyone deliver himself from The fierce anger of the Lord And lest your heart faint and you fear For the rumor that will be heard in the Land A rumor will come one year and after That in another year a rumor will come And violence in the land ruler against Ruler Therefore behold the days are coming That I will bring judgment on the carved Images of Babylon Her whole land shall be ashamed and all Her slain shall fall in her midst Then the heavens and the Earth and all That is in them shall sing joyously over Babylon For the plunderers shall come to her From the north says the Lord As Babylon has caused the slain of Israel to fall So it's Babylon the slain of all the Earth shall fall You who have escaped the sword get away Do not stand still Remember the Lord are far off and let Jerusalem come to your mind We are ashamed because we have heard Reproach Shame has covered our faces For strangers have come into the Sanctuaries of the Lord's House

Therefore behold the days are coming Says the Lord that I will bring judgment On her carved images And throughout all her land the wounded Shall groan Though Babylon were to mount up to Heaven and though she were to fortify The height of her strength Yet from me plunderers would come to her Says the Lord The sound of a cry comes from Babylon And great destruction from the land of The Chaldeans Because the Lord is plundering Babylon And silencing her loud voice Though her waves roar like Great Waters And the noise of their voice is uttered Because the plunderer comes against her Against Babylon and her mighty men are Taken Every one of their bows is broken For the Lord is the god of recompense He will surely repay And I will make drunk her princes and Wise men her Governors her deputies and Her Mighty Men And they shall sleep a Perpetual sleep And not awake says the king whose name Is the Lord of hosts Thus says the Lord of hosts The broad walls of Babylon shall be Utterly broken and her High Gates shall Be burned with fire The people will labor in vain and the

Nations because of the fire And they shall be weary The word which Jeremiah the prophet Commanded Syria the son of naraya the Son of Marcia when he went with zedekiah The king of Judah to Babylon in the Fourth year of his reign And Syria was the Quartermaster So Jeremiah wrote in a book all the evil That would come upon Babylon all these Words that are written against Babylon And Jeremiah said to Syria When you arrive in Babylon and see it And read all these words Then you shall say Oh Lord you have spoken against this Place to cut it off So that none shall remain in it neither Man nor beast but it shall be desolate Forever Now it shall be when you have finished Reading this book that you shall tie a Stone to it and throw it out into the Euphrates Then you shall say Thus Babylon shall sink and not rise From the catastrophe that I will bring Upon her and they shall be weary Thus far are the words of Jeremiah
