A Message Concerning Babylon

43 “Her cities have become an object of horror,
A parched land and a desert,
A land in which no man lives
And through which no son of man passes.
44 I will punish Bel in Babylon,
And I will make what he has swallowed come out of his mouth;
And the nations will no longer stream to him.
Even the wall of Babylon has fallen down!
45 Come forth from her midst, My people,
And each of you save yourselves
From the fierce anger of the Lord.
