Context Readings

The Downfall Of The King Of Babylon

18 All the kings of the nations lie in state, each in his own tomb. 19 But you are cast away from your grave, like a repulsive branch, your clothing is the slain, those pierced by the sword; those who go down to the Pit. Like a dead body trampled underfoot, 20 you will not be united with them in burial, for you have destroyed your land, you have slain your people. People will never mention the descendants of those who practice evil again!
