A Message Concerning Babylon

10 And Chaldea shall be a prey. All who prey upon her shall be satisfied, says LORD. 11 Because ye are glad, because ye rejoice, O ye who plunder my heritage, because ye are wanton as a heifer that treads out [the grain], and neigh as strong horses, 12 your mother shall be utterly put to shame. She who bore you shall be confounded. Behold, she shall be the hindermost of the nations, a wilderness, a dry land, and a desert.
