A Message Concerning Babylon

6 A perishing flock hath My people been, Their shepherds have caused them to err, To the mountains causing them to go back, From mountain unto hill they have gone, They have forgotten their crouching-place. 7 All finding them have devoured them, And their adversaries have said: We are not guilty, Because that they sinned against Jehovah, The habitation of righteousness, And the hope of their fathers -- Jehovah. 8 Move ye from the midst of Babylon, And from the land of the Chaldeans go out. And be as he-goats before a flock.
