A Pronouncement against Babylon

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 13:1 -

A pronouncement concerning Babylon that Isaiah son of Amoz saw:

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 13:2 -

Lift up a banner on a barren mountain.

Call out to them.

Signal with your hand, and they will go

through the gates of the nobles.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 13:3 -

I have commanded my consecrated ones;

yes, I have called my warriors,

who celebrate my triumph,

to execute my wrath.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 13:4 -

Listen, a commotion on the mountains,

like that of a mighty people!

Listen, an uproar among the kingdoms,

like nations being gathered together!

The LORD of Armies is mobilizing an army for war.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 13:5 -

They are coming from a distant land,

from the farthest horizon —

the LORD and the weapons of his wrath —

to destroy the whole country.[fn]

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 13:6 -

Wail! For the day of the LORD is near.

It will come as destruction from the Almighty.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 13:7 -

Therefore everyone’s hands will become weak,

and every man will lose heart.[fn]

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 13:8 -

They will be horrified;

pain and agony will seize them;

they will be in anguish like a woman in labor.

They will look at each other,

their faces flushed with fear.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 13:9 -

Look, the day of the LORD is coming —

cruel, with rage and burning anger —

to make the earth a desolation

and to destroy its sinners.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 13:10 -

Indeed, the stars of the sky and its constellations[fn]

will not give their light.

The sun will be dark when it rises,

and the moon will not shine.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 13:11 -

I will punish the world for its evil,

and wicked people for their iniquities.

I will put an end to the pride of the arrogant

and humiliate the insolence of tyrants.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 13:12 -

I will make a human more scarce than fine gold,

and mankind more rare than the gold of Ophir.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 13:13 -

Therefore I will make the heavens tremble,

and the earth will shake from its foundations

at the wrath of the LORD of Armies,

on the day of his burning anger.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 13:14 -

Like wandering gazelles

and like sheep without a shepherd,

each one will turn to his own people,

each one will flee to his own land.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 13:15 -

Whoever is found will be stabbed,

and whoever is caught will die by the sword.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 13:16 -

Their children will be dashed to pieces before their eyes;

their houses will be looted,

and their wives raped.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 13:17 -

Look! I am stirring up the Medes against them,

who cannot be bought off with[fn] silver

and who have no desire for gold.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 13:18 -

Their bows will cut young men to pieces.

They will have no compassion on offspring;

they will not look with pity on children.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 13:19 -

And Babylon, the jewel of the kingdoms,

the glory of the pride of the Chaldeans,

will be like Sodom and Gomorrah

when God overthrew them.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 13:20 -

It will never be inhabited

or lived in from generation to generation;

a nomad will not pitch his tent there,

and shepherds will not let their flocks rest there.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 13:21 -

But desert creatures will lie down there,

and owls will fill the houses.

Ostriches will dwell there,

and wild goats will leap about.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 13:22 -

Hyenas will howl in the fortresses,

and jackals, in the luxurious palaces.

Babylon’s time is almost up;

her days are almost over.
