A Message Concerning Babylon

10 "Chaldea will become plunder; All who plunder her will have enough," declares the LORD. 11 "Because you are glad, because you are jubilant, O you who pillage My heritage, Because you skip about like a threshing heifer And neigh like stallions, 12 Your mother will be greatly ashamed, She who gave you birth will be humiliated Behold, she will be the least of the nations, A wilderness, a parched land and a desert.
