An Oracle Against Babylon

17 Behold me! stirring up against them the Medes, - Who of silver, shall take no account, And as for gold, they shall not delight in it; 18 And, bows, shall dash the young to pieces, - And on the fruit of the womb, will they have no pity, Over children, will their eye throw no shield. 19 Thus shall Babylon - The most lovely of kingdoms, The majestic beauty of the Chaldees - Become as in the divine overthrow of Sodom and Gomorrah.
