of Hazor, and of Elam.

rezzar king of Babylon shall smite, thus
saith the Lord ; Arise ye, go up to Kedar,
and spoil 'the men of the east.

29 Theiments and their flocks shall they
take away: they shall take to themselves
their curtains, and all their vessels, and their
camels; and they shall cry unto them, 'Fear
is on every side.

30 IT " Flee, t get you far oflf, dwell deep,

ye inhabitants of Hazor, saith the Lord ;
for Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon hath
taken counsel against you, and hath con-
ceived a purpose against you.

31 Arise, get you up unto ='the || wealthy
nation, that dwelleth without care, saith the
Lord, which have neither gates nor bars,
which y dwell alone.

32 And their camels shall be a booty, and
the multitude of their cattle a spoil : and

1 will ^scatter into all winds "them that are
t in the utmost corners ; and I will bring
their calamity from all sides thereof, saith
the Lord.

33 And Hazor ''shall be a dwelling for
dragons, and a desolation for ever : •= there
shall no man abide there, nor any son of
man dwell in it.

34 IT The word of the Lord that came
to Jeremiah the prophet against ^ Elam in
the beginning of the reign of Zedekiah
king of Judah, saying,

35 Thus saith the Lord of hosts; Behold,
I will break «the bow of Elam, the chief of
their might.

36 And upon Elam will I bring the four
winds from the four quarters of heaven, and
fwill scatter them toward all those winds ;
and there shall be no nation whither the
outcasts of Elam shall not come.

37 For I will cause Elam to be dismayed
before their enemies, and before them that
seek their life : and I will bring evil upon
them, even my fierce anger, saith the Lord ;
? and I will send the sword after them, till I
have consumed them:

38 And I will >■ set my throne in Elam,
and will destroy from thence the king and
the princes, saith the Lord.

39 IT But it shall come to pass ' in the
latter days, that I will bring again the cap-
tivity of Elam, saith the Lord.

Babylon and against the land of the
Chaldeans tby Jeremiah the prophet.

publish, and tset up a standard; publish,
^ 675



The judgment of Babylon,

and conceal not : say, Babylon is taken,
t" Bel is confounded, Merodach is broken in
pieces ; " her idols are confounded, her images
are broken in pieces.

3 '' For out of the north there cometh up
«a nation against her, which shall make her
land desolate, and none shall dwell therein :
they shall remove, they shall depart, both
man and beast.

4 H In those days, and in that time, saith
the Lord, the children of Israel shall come,
'tkey and the children of Judah together,
s going and weeping : they shall go, >■ and
seek the Lord their God.

5 They shall ask the way to Zion with
their faces thitherward, sayings Come and
let us join ourselves to the Lord in 'a
perpetual covenant that shall not be for-
gotten.

6 My people hath been ■'lost sheep : their
shepherds have caused them to go astray,
they have turned them away on ' the moun-
tains : they have gone from mountain to hill,
they have forgotten their f resting-place.

7 All that found them have ""devoured
them : and " their adversaries said, ° We
offend not, because they have sinned against
the Lord, p the habitation of justice, even
the Lord, ithe hope of their fathers.

8 - Remove out of the midst of Babylon,
and go forth out of the land of the Chalde-
ans, and be as the he-goats before the flocks,

9 II = For lo, I will raise and cause to
come up against Babylon an assembly of
great nations from the north country : and
they shall * set themselves in array against
her; from thence she shall be taken: their
arrows shall be as of a mighty || expert man;
"none shall return in vain.

10 And Chaldea shall be a spoil : ^all that
spoil her shall be satisfied, saith the Lord.

11 y Because ye were glad, because ye
rejoiced, O ye destroyers of mine heritage,
because ye are grown ffat ^as the heifer at
grass, and || bellow as bulls;

12 Your mother shall be sore confounded;
she that bare you shall be ashamed : behold,
the hindermost of the nations shall be a
wilderness, a dry land, and a desert.

13 Because of the wrath of the Lord it
shall not be inhabited, ''but it shall be wholly
desolate : '' every one that goeth by Babylon
shall be astonished, and hiss at all her
plagues.

14 " Put yourselves in array against Baby-
lon round about: all ye •'that bend the bow,
shoot at her, spare no arrows : for she hath
sinned against the Lord.

15 Shout against her round about: she
hath « given her hand: her foundations are

and redemption of Israel.

fallen, *" her walls are thrown down : for ? it
is the vengeance of the Lord : take ven-
geance upon her; ''as she hath done, do unto
her.

16 Cut off the sower from Babylon, and
him that handleth the || sickle in the time
of harvest : for fear of the oppressing sword
'they shall turn every one to his people,
and they shall flee every one to his own
land.

17 IT Israel is ''a scattered sheep; 'the lions
have driven him away: first ""the king of
Assyria hath deA'oured him: and last this
" Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon hath bro-
ken his bones.

18 Therefore thus saith the Lord of hosts,
the God of Israel ; Behold, I will punish the
king of Babylon and his land, as I have
punished the king of Assyria.

19 °And I will bring Israel again to his
habitation, and he shall feed on Carmel
and Bashan, and his soul shall be satisfied
upon mount Ephraim and Gilead.

20 In those days, and in that time, saith
the Lord, Pthe iniquity of Israel shall be
sought for, and there shall be none; and the
sins of Judah, and they shall not be found :
for I will pardon them iwhom I reserve.

21 H Go up against the land || of Mera-
thaim, even against it, and against the in-
habitants of ■■ II Pekod : waste and utterly
destroy after them, saith the Lord, and
do ' according to all that I have commanded
thee.

22 'A sound of battle is in the land, and
of great destruction.

23 How is "the hammer of the whole
earth cut asunder and broken ! how is
Babylon become a desolation among the
nations !

24 I have laid a snare for thee, and thou
art also taken, O Babylon, ^and thou wast
not aware : thou art found, and also caught,
because thou hast striven against the Lord.

25 The Lord hath opened his armoury,
and hath brought forth y the weapons of
his indignation : for this is the work of the
Lord God of hosts in the land of the Chal-
deans.

26 Come against her ffrom the utmost
border, open her storehouses : || cast her up
as heaps, and destroy her utterly : let nothing
of her be left.

27 Slayall her ^bullocks; letthem go down
to the slaughter : wo unto them ! for their
day is come, the time of "their visitation.

28 The voice of them that flee, and escape
out of the land of Babylon, ''to declare in
Zion the vengeance of the Lord our God,
the vengeance of his temple.
680



The judgment of Babylon,

29 Call together the archers against
Babylon : 'all ye that bend the bow, camp
against it round about; let none thereof
escape: "^recompense her according to her
work ; according to all that she hath done,
do unto her : * for she hath been proud
against the Lord, against the Holy One of
Israel.

30 f Therefore shall her young men fall
in the streets, and all her men of war shall
be cut off in that day, saith the Lord.

31 Behold, I am against thee, O thou
t most proud, saith the Lord God of hosts :
for sthy day is come, the time that I will
visit thee.

32 And t the most proud shall stumble
and fall, and none shall raise him up : and
•■I will kindle a fire in his cities, and it shall
devour all round about him.

33 H Thus saith the Lord of hosts ; The
children of Israel and the children of Judah
were oppressed together : and all that took
them captives held them fast ; they refused
to let them go.

34 'Their Redeemer is strong ; ^the Lord
of hosts is his name : he shall thoroughly
plead their cause, that he may give rest to
the land, and disquiet the inhabitants of
Babylon.

35 If A sword is upon the Chaldeans, saith
the Lord, and upon the inhabitants of
Babylon, and 'upon her princes, and upon
"her wise men.

36 A sword is "upon the || t liars ; and they
shall dote : a sword is upon her mighty men ;
and they shall be dismayed.

37 A sword is upon their horses, and
upon their chariots, and upon aJl "the
mingled people that are in the midst of
her ; and Pthey shall become as women : a
sword is upon her treasures ; and they shall
be robbed.

38 9 A drought is upon her waters ; and
they shall be dried up : for it is the land of
'graven images, and they are mad upon their
idols.

39 'Therefore the wild beasts of the desert
with the wild beasts of the islands shall dwell
there, and the owls shall dwell therein : 'and
it shall be no more inhabited for ever;
neither shall it be dwelt in from generation
to generation.

40 "As God overthrew Sodom and Go-
morrah and the neighbour cities thereof, saith
the Lord ; so shall no man abide there,
neither shall any son of man dwell therein.

41 ^Behold, a people shall come from the
north, and a great nation, and many kings
shall be raised up from the coasts of the
earth.

and redemption of Israel,

42 yThey shall hold the bow and the
lance : ''they are cruel, and will not shew
mercy : "their voice shall roar like the sea,
and they shall ride upon horses, every one
put in array, like a man to the battle,
against thee, O daughter of Babylon.

43 The king of Babylon hath heard the
report of them, and his hands waxed feeble :
•" anguish took hold of him, and pangs as of
a woman in travail.

44 «= Behold, he shall come up like a lion
from the swelling of Jordan unto the habi-
tation of the strong : but I will make them
suddenly run away from her : and who is
a chosen man, that I may appoint over her ?
for who is like me ? and who will || appoint
me the time? and ^who is that shepherd
that will stand before me ?

45 Therefore hear ye ^the counsel of the
Lord, that he hath taken against Babylon ;
and his purposes, that he hath purposed
against the land of the Chaldeans : surely
the least of the flock shall draw them out :
surely he shall make their habitation desolate
with them.

46 ^ At the noise of the taking of Babylon
the earth is moved, and the cry is heard
among the nations.

CHAP. LL

1 The severe judgment of God against Babylon in re-
venge of Israel. 59 Jeremiah delivereth the book of
this prophecy to Seraiah, to be cast into Euphrates, in
token of the perpetual sinking of Babylon.

THUS saith the Lord; Behold, I will
raise up against Babylon, and against
them that dwell in the f midst of them that
rise up against me, * a destroying wind ;

2 And will send unto Babylon, •• fanners
that shall fan her, and shall empty her land :

for in the day of trouble they shall be against
her round about.

3 Against him that bendeth ^let the archer
bend his bow, and against him that lifteth
himself up in his brigandine : and spare ye
not her young men ; « destroy ye utterly all
her host.

4 Thus the slain shall fall in the land of
the Chaldeans, ''and they that are thrust
through in her streets.

5 For Israel hath not heen forsaken, nor
Judah of his God, of the Lord of hosts ;
though their land was filled with sin against
the Holy One of Israel.

6 eFIee out of the midst of Babylon, and
deliver every man his soul : be not cut off
in her iniquity; for "this is the time of the
Lord's vengeance ; 'he will render unto her
a recompense.

7 •'Babylon hath heen a golden cup m

God's severe judgment against Babylon JEREMIAH.



the Lord's hand, that made all the earth
druBken : 'the nations have drunken of her
wine ; therefore the nations "are mad.

8 Babylon is suddenly "fallen and de-
stroyed : "howl for her ; Ptake balm for her
pain, if so be she may be healed.

9 We would have healed Babylon, but she
is not healed : forsake her, and i let us go
every one into his own country: "'for her
judgment reacheth unto heaven, and is lifted
up even to the skies.

10 The Lord hath ^brought forth our
righteousness : come, and let us 'declare in
Zion the work of the Lord our God.

11 " Make t bright the arrows; gather the
shields : ^the Lord hath raised up the spirit
of the kings of the Medes : y for his device is
against Babylon, to destroy it ; because it is
'the vengeance of the Lord, the vengeance
of his templa.

12 ^Set up the standard upon the walls
of Babylon, make the watch strong, set up
the watchmen, prepare the f ambushes : for
the Lord hath both devised and done that
which he spake against the inhabitants of
Babylon.

13 ''O thou that dwellest upon many
waters, abundant in treasures, thine end is
come, and the measure of thy covetousness.

14 "The Lord of hosts .hath sworn t by
himself, saying, Surely I will fill thee with
men, ^ as with caterpillars ; and they shall
t lift ^up a shout against thee.

15 ""He hath made the earth by his power,
he hath established the world by his wisdom,
and 8 hath stretched out the heaven by his
understanding.

16 ^ When he uttereth his voice, there is
a II multitude of waters in the heavens ; and
'he causeth the vapours to ascend from the
ends of the earth : he maketh lightnings
with rain, and bringeth forth the wind out
of his treasures.

17 '' Every man || is brutish by his know-
ledge ; every founder is confounded by the
graven image : ' for his molten image is false-
hood, and there is no breath in them.

18 ■" They are vanity, the work of errors :
in the time of their visitation they shall
perish.

19 " The portion of Jacob is not like them ;
for he is the former of all things : and Israel
is the rod of his inheritance : the Lord of
hosts is his name.

20 » Thou art my battle-axe, and weapons
of war : for || with thee will I break in pieces
the nations, and with thee will I destroy
kingdoms ;

21 And with thee will I break in pieces
the horse and his rider; and with thee

22 With thee also will I break in pieces
man and woman ; and with thee will I break
in pieces p old and young ; and with thee
will I break in pieces the young man and
the maid ;

23 I will also break in pieces with thee
the shepherd and his flock ; and with thee
will I break in pieces the husbandman and
his yoke of oxen ; and with thee will I break
in pieces captains and rulers.

24 lAnd I will render unto Babylon and
to all the inhabitants of Chaldea all their
evil that they have done in Zion in your
sight, saith the Lord.

25 Behold, I am against thee, 'O destroy-
ing mountain, saith the Lord, which de-
stroyest all the earth : and I will stretch out
my hand upon thee, and roll thee down
from the rocks, =and will make thee a burnt
mountain.

26 And they shall not take of thee a stone
for a corner, nor a stone for foundations ;
' but thou shalt be t desolate for ever, saith
the Lord.

27 " Set ye up a standard in the land, blow
the trumpet among the nations, ^prepare
the nations against her, call together against
her ythe kingdoms of Ararat, Minni, and
Ashchenaz ; appoint a captain against her ;
cause the horses to come up as the rough
caterpillars.

28 Prepare against her the nations with
^the kings of the Medes, the captains thereof,
and all the rulers thereof, and all the land of
his dominion.

29 And the land shall tremble and sor-
row ; for every purpose of the Lord shall
be performed against Babylon, ^io make
the land of Babylon a desolation without
an inhabitant.

30 The mighty men of Babylon have for-
borne to fight, they have remained in their
holds: their might hath failed; ''they became
as women : they have burned her dwelling-
places ; "her bars are broken.

31 ''One post shall run to meet another,
and one messenger to meet another, to shew
the king of Babylon that his city is taken at
one end,

32 And that "the passages are stopped,
and the reeds they have burned with fire,
and the men of war are affrighted.

33 For thus saith the Lord of hosts, the
God of Israel ; The daughter of Babylon is
Hike a threshing-floor, efia'stime to thresh
her: yet a little while, •> and the time of her
harvest shall come.

God's severe judgment against Babylon CHAP. LI.



hath ' devoured me, he hath crushed me, he
hath made me an empty vessel, he hath
swallowed me up like a dragon, he hath
filled his belly with my delicates, he hath
cast me out.

35 tThe violence done to me and to my
II flesh he upon Babylon, shall the f inha-
bitant of Zion say; and, My blood upon
the inhabitants of Chaldea, shall Jerusalem
say.

36 Therefore thus saith the Lord; Be-
hold, ''I will plead thy cause, and take
vengeance for thee; 'and I vyill dry up her
sea, and make her springs dry.

37 ""And Babylon shall become heaps, a
dweUing-place for dragons, " an astonishment,
and an hissing, without an inhabitant.

38 They shall roar together like lions:
they shall || yell as lions' whelps.

39 In their heat I will make their feasts,
and "I will make them drunken, that they
may rejoice, and sleep a perpetual sleep, and
not wake, saith the Lord.

40 I will bring them .down like lambs to
the slaughter, like rams with he-goats.

41 How is P Sheshach taken ! and how is
5 the praise of the whole earth surprised!
how is Babylon become an astonishment
among the nations!

42 "^The sea is come up upon Babylon:
she IS covered with the multitude of the
waves thereof.

43 ^Her cities are a desolation, a dry land,
and a wilderness, a land wherein no man
dwelleth, neither doth any son of man pass
thereby.

44 *And I will punish Bel in Babylon,
and I will bring forth out of his mouth that
which he hath swallowed up : and the na-
tions shall not flow together any more unto
him: yea, "the wall of Babylon shall fall.

45 ^ My people, go ye out of the midst of
her, and deliver ye every man his soul from
the fierce anger of the Lord.

46 And II lest your heart faint, and ye fear
y for the rumour that shall be heard in the
land; a rumour shall both come one year,
and after that in another year shall come
a rumour, and violence in the land, ruler
against ruler.

47 Therefore behold, the days come, that
*I will tdo judgment upon the graven images
of Babylon : and her whole land shall be
confounded, and all her slain shall fall in
the midst of her.

48 Then "the heaven and the earth, and
all that is therein, shall sing for Babylon :
■•for the spoilers shall come unto her from
the north, saith the Lord.
