And thou tookest up this parable against the king of Babel, and thou saidst, How did he oppressing, cease! oppression ceased. Jehovah broke in pieces the rod of the unjust, the rod of the rulers. Striking the peoples in wrath a blow not removed, bringing down the nations in anger; pursuing, not sparing. read more.
All the earth rested, having quiet: they broke forth a rejoicing. Also the cypresses rejoiced at thee, the cedars of Lebanon: From that time thou wert laid down, he cutting off will not come up against us. Hades from beneath was moved for thee to meet thy coming: it roused the shades for thee, all the leaders of the earth: it raised up from their thrones all the kings of the nations. All they will answer and say to thee, Also thou wert weak as we; thou wert made like to us. Thy grandeur was brought down to hades, the sound of thy harps: the worm was spread under thee, and worms covering thee. How thou fallest from the heavens, brilliant star, son of the morning! thou wert cut off to the earth, overthrowing upon the nations! And thou saidst in thy heart, I will go up to the heavens; from above to the stars of God I will lift up my throne, and I will sit upon the mountain of appointment in the thighs of the north. I will go up upon the heights of the cloud: I will become like the Most High. But to hades shalt thou come down, to the thighs of the pit They seeing thee shall look upon thee, they shall attend to thee. This the man moving the earth, shaking kingdoms: Setting the habitable globe as a desert, and destroying its cities: for his bound opening not the house. All the kings of the nations, all of them, lay down in honor, a man in his house. And thou wert east out of thy grave as a sprout abhorred, a garment of the slain thrust through with the sword, and going down to the stones of the pit as a corpse trodden down. Thou shalt not be united with them in the grave, for thou destroyedst thy land, and didst slay thy people: the seed of those doing evil shall not be called forever. Prepare slaughter for his sons, for the iniquity of their fathers; they shall not rise and possess the land, and fill the face of the habitable globe with cities. And I rose against them, said Jehovah of armies, and I cut off to Babel the name and remainder, offspring and progeny, says Jehovah.

The burden of the desert of the sea. As whirlwinds in the south for passing through, from the desert it came, from a fearful land. A hard vision was announced to me: The spoiler spoiled, and he laying waste, laid waste. Go up, O Elam: press, O Media; all her sighing I caused to cease. For this, my loins were filled with pain: distress took hold of me as the pains of her bringing forth: I was shaken from hearing; I trembled from seeing read more.
My heart wandered; trembling made me afraid: the evening twilight of my desire he put to me for fear. Set in order the table; view the watch-tower; eat, drink: arise ye chiefs, anoint the shield. For thus said Jehovah to me, Go set up a watchman, he shall announce what he shall see. He will see a chariot, a pair of horse men, the rider of an ass, the rider of a camel; and listening, he listened with much attention. And he will call, A lion: on the watch-tower my lord, I stand continually in the day, and upon my watch I stand all the night And behold, here came a chariot, a man, a pair of horsemen. And he will answer and say, She fell, Babel fell; and the carved images of her god he brake in pieces to the earth. O my threshing, and the son of my threshing-floor, what I heard from Jehovah of armies the God of Israel, I announced to you.

And it was when seventy years were filled up, I will review over the king of Babel and upon this nation, says Jehovah, their iniquity, and upon the land of the Chaldeans, and I set it for eternal desolations

Pharsin; Thy kingdom was divided, and it shall be given to the Medes and to Persia.

And I in the one year to Darius the Mede, standing to make firm and to strengthen for him. And now I will announce the truth to thee. Behold, yet three kings standing up to Persia; and the fourth shall be rich of great riches above all: and in his becoming strong in his riches he shall rouse up all against the kingdoms of Grecia. And a strong king stood up, and he ruled from much dominion, and he did according to his will. read more.
And in his standing up his kingdom shall be broken, and shall be divided to the four winds of the heavens; and not to his latter state, and not according to his dominion which he ruled: for his kingdom shall be plucked up, and for others from besides these

Thou, O king, wert seeing, and behold, one great image. This image vast, and its brightness excellent; it stood before thee, and its aspect terrible. This image, its head of good gold, the breasts and arms of silver, and the bowels and thighs of brass: The legs of iron, the feet part of iron, and part of burnt clay. read more.
Thou wert seeing even till a stone was cut out not with hands, and striking against the image upon the feet of iron and burnt clay, and breaking them in pieces. At that time were beaten small at once, the iron, the burnt clay, the brass, the silver and the gold, and they were as the chaff of the threshing-floor of summer; and the wind lifted them up and all place was not found for them: and the stone striking against the image was for a great rock, and filled all the earth. This the dream, and we will tell its interpretation before the king. Thou, O king, a king of kings: for the God of the heavens gave to thee a kingdom strong and powerful, and splendid. And in all that the sons of men dwelt, the beasts of the open field and the birds of the heavens he gave into thine hand, and gave thee power over them all Thou this head of gold. And after thee shall arise another kingdom lower than thee, and another third kingdom of brass, that shall have power over all the earth. And the fourth kingdom shall be strong as iron, because that iron beats small, and makes thin all: and as iron breaks all these, it shall beat small and break. And that thou sawest the feet and toes, part of burnt clay of the potter, and part of iron, the kingdom shall be divided; and from the firmness of iron to be in it, for which cause that thou sawest iron mingled with earthen-ware. And the toes of the feet, part of iron, and part of burnt clay, from the end of the kingdom shall be strong, and part shall be cut asunder. That thou sawest the iron mingled with the earthen-ware, mingling for themselves with the seed of men: and not cleaving to them this with this, so as iron not mingling with burnt clay. And in their days that they are kings, the God of the heavens shall set up a kingdom that shall not be destroyed forever: and its kingdom shall be left to another people; it shall beat small and destroy all these kingdoms, and this shall stand forever. Because that thou sawest that the stone being cut from the rock not with hands, and it beat small the iron, the brass, the burnt clay, the silver and the gold: the great God made known to the king what to be after this: and the dream certain, and its interpretation faithful.

Persia, Cush and Phut with them, all of them with shield and helmet

Behold me rousing up the Modes against them, who shall not reckon silver; and gold they shall not delight in it

The word of Jehovah which was to Jeremiah the prophet against Elam in the beginning of the kingdom of Zedekiah king of Judah, saying, Thus said Jehovah of armies, Behold me breaking the bow of Elam the beginning of their strength. And I brought upon Elam the four winds from the four ends of the heavens, and I scattered them to all these winds; and there shall not be a nation where the outcasts of Elam shall not come there. read more.
And I confounded Elam before their enemies, and before them seeking their soul: and I brought evil upon them, the burning of mine anger, says Jehovah; and I sent after them the sword even till I finished them. And I set my throne in Elam, and I destroyed from thence the king and the chiefs, says Jehovah. And it was in the last days I will turn back the captivity of Elam, says Jehovah.

Polish the arrows; fill the quivers: Jehovah roused up the spirit of the kings of the Males: for his purpose is against Babel, to destroy her; for it is the vengeance of Jehovah, the vengeance of his temple. Lift ye up a signal against the walls of Babel, strengthen the watch, set up the watchers, prepare the ambushes: for Jehovah also purposed and also did what he spake to the inhabitants of Babel. Dwelling upon many waters, abundant in treasures, thine end came, the measure of thy plunder. read more.
Jehovah of armies sware by his soul: That if I filled thee with men as with locusts, and they struck up a shout against thee. He made the earth by his power, he prepared the habitable globe by his wisdom, and by his understanding he stretched forth the heavens. For a voice he gives a multitude of waters in the heavens; and he will bring up the clouds, from the extremity of the earth, making lightnings to the rain, and he will bring forth the wind from his treasures. Every man was brutish from knowledge; every founder was ashamed from his carved image: for his founding is a falsehood, and no spirit in them. They are vanity, the work of delusions: in the time of reviewing they shall perish. Not as these the portions of Jacob; for he the former of all: and the rod of his inheritance: Jehovah of armies his name. Thou a mallet to me, a weapon of war: and I broke the nations in pieces with thee, and I destroyed kingdoms with thee; And I broke in pieces with thee the horse and his rider; and I broke in pieces with thee the chariot and its charioteer; And I broke in pieces with thee man and woman; and I broke in pieces with thee the old man and the boy; and I broke in pieces with thee the young man and the virgin; And I broke in pieces with thee the shepherd and his flock; and I broke in pieces with thee the husbandman and his yoke; and I broke in pieces with thee the prefects and the rulers. And I recompensed to Babel and to all the inhabitants of Chaldea all their evil which they did in Zion before your eyes, says Jehovah. Behold me against thee, thou destroying mountain, says Jehovah, destroying all the earth: and I stretched out my hand upon thee, and I rolled thee from the rocks, and I gave thee for a burnt mountain. And they shall not take from thee a stone for a corner, and a stone for foundations; for thou shalt be desolations forever, says Jehovah. Lift up a signal in the earth, strike ye the trumpet in the nations, consecrate the nations against her, cause ye to be heard against her the kingdoms of Ararat, Minni, and Ashchenaz; appoint over her a satrap; bring up the horse as the bristling locust Consecrate against her the nations, with the kings of the Medes, her prefects and all her rulers, and all the land of his dominion. And the earth shall shake and be wearied; for the purpose of Jehovah was set up against Babel, to set the land of Babel for a desolation from not being inhabited. The strong ones of Babel ceased to fight; they dwelt in fastnesses; their strength failed; they were for women: they burned her dwellings; her bars were broken. A runner shall run to meet a runner, and he announcing, to meet him announcing, to announce to the king of Babel that his city was taken from the extremity. And the passages were taken, and they burnt the ropes in fire, and the men of war trembled. For thus said Jehovah of armies, God of Israel: the daughter of Babel is as a threshing-floor, the time of her treading; yet a little while and the time of harvest coming to her. Nebuchadnezzar king of Babel consumed us, he destroyed us, he set us an empty vessel, he swallowed us down as a dragon, he filled his belly with my delicacies, he thrust us away. My violence and my remainder upon Babel, shall she dwelling in Zion say; and my blood to the inhabitants of Chaldea, shall Jerusalem say. For this, thus said Jehovah: Behold me pleading thy cause, and I took vengeance with thy vengeance; and I dried up her sea, and made her fountains dry. And Babel was for heaps, a habitation of jackals, an astonishment and a hissing, from none inhabiting. Together as lions shall they roar: they shook themselves as the lion's whelps. In their heat I will set their drinkings, and I made them drunken so that they shall exult, and sleep an eternal sleep, and they shall not rouse up, says Jehovah. I will bring them down as lambs for the slaughter, as rams with he goats. How was Sheshach taken and the praise of all the earth will be seized; how was Babel for a desolation among the nations! The sea came up against Babel: with the multitude of rolling waves was she covered. Her cities were for a desolation, a land of dryness and a sterile region, a land not a man dwells in them, and not the son of man shall pass through them. And I reviewed over Bel in Babel, and brought forth his swallowing from his mouth: and the nations shall no more flow to him: also the wall of Babel fell. Go ye out from her midst, my people, and save ye each his soul from the burning of the anger of Jehovah. And lest your heart shall be faint and ye be afraid for the report being heard in the land; and a report came in a year, and after it in a year a report, and violence in the land, dominion against dominion. For this, behold, the days coming and I reviewed upon the carved images of Babel: and all her land shall be ashamed, and all her wounded shall fall in her midst And the heavens and the earth shouted against Babel, and all which is in them: for those laying waste shall come against her from the north, says Jehovah. Also Babel for the falling of the wounded of Israel, also for Babel fell the wounded of all the earth. Being saved from the sword, go: ye shall not stand: remember from far off Jehovah, and Jerusalem shall come up upon your heart We were ashamed for we heard reproach: shame covered our faces, for strangers came to the holy places of the house of Jehovah. For this, behold, the days coming, says Jehovah, and I reviewed upon her carved images: and in all her land the wounded shall groan. If Babel shall go up to the heavens, and if she shall fortify the height of her strength, from me shall they laying waste come to her, says Jehovah. The voice of a cry from Babel, and a great breaking from the land of the Chaldeans: For Jehovah laid Babel waste, and he destroyed from her the great voice: and the billows roared as many waters, and a noise of their voice was given. For he spoiling came upon her, upon Babel, and her strong ones were taken, their bow was broken: for the God of recompenses, Jehovah requiting will requite. And I made drunk her chiefs and her wise, her prefects and her rulers, and her strong ones: and they shall sleep an eternal sleep, and they shall not rise up, says the King, Jehovah of armies his name. Thus said Jehovah of armies: The broad walls of Babel being demolished, shall be demolished, and her high gates shall be burnt in fire; the peoples shall labor in vain, the nations for the fire, and they shall be weary. The word which Jeremiah the prophet commanded Seraiah, son of Neriah, son of Maaseiah, in his going with Zedekiah king of Judah to Babel, in the fourth year to his reigning. And Seraiah was chief of the resting place. And Jeremiah will write all the evil which shall come to Babel, in one book, all these words being written against Babel And Jeremiah will say to Seraiah, When thou comest to Babel, and thou sawest, and didst read all these words, And thou saidst, O Jehovah, thou spakest against this place, to cut it off, for none to be dwelling in it, to man and even to beast, for it shall be desolations forever. And it was as thou finishedst to read this book, thou shalt bind upon it a stone and cast it into the midst of Phrath And thou saidst, Thus shall Babel sink, and shall not rise from the face of the evil which I bring upon her: and they shall be weary. Even to this the words of Jeremiah.

There Elam and all her multitude round about her grave, all of them wounded, fallen by the sword, who went down uncircumcised to the earth underneath, who gave their terror in the land of the living; and they will bear their shame with those going down to the pit In the midst of the wounded they gave a bed to her with all her multitude: her graves round about him; all of them uncircumcised, wounded of the sword: for their terror was given in the land of the living, and they shall bear their shame with those going down to the pit: he was given into the midst of the wounded.


For thus said Jehovah of armies, God of Israel: the daughter of Babel is as a threshing-floor, the time of her treading; yet a little while and the time of harvest coming to her.


O my threshing, and the son of my threshing-floor, what I heard from Jehovah of armies the God of Israel, I announced to you.


Behold me putting a fleece of wool in the threshing-floor, and if the dew shall be upon the fleece only, and upon all the earth dryness, and I knew that thou wilt save Israel by my hand. as thou spakest

O my threshing, and the son of my threshing-floor, what I heard from Jehovah of armies the God of Israel, I announced to you.


For there is a day they watching upon mount Ephraim called, Arise ye, and we will go up to Zion to Jehovah our God.

And he watching stood. upon the tower in Jezreel, and he will see the multitude of Jehu in his coming, and he will say, I see a multitude. And Jehoram will say, Take a horseman and send to meet them, and he shall say, Is it peace?

And Judah came upon the watchtower to the desert, and they will look towards the multitude, and behold them corpses falling to the earth, and none escaping.

Set in order the table; view the watch-tower; eat, drink: arise ye chiefs, anoint the shield. For thus said Jehovah to me, Go set up a watchman, he shall announce what he shall see. He will see a chariot, a pair of horse men, the rider of an ass, the rider of a camel; and listening, he listened with much attention. read more.
And he will call, A lion: on the watch-tower my lord, I stand continually in the day, and upon my watch I stand all the night And behold, here came a chariot, a man, a pair of horsemen. And he will answer and say, She fell, Babel fell; and the carved images of her god he brake in pieces to the earth. O my threshing, and the son of my threshing-floor, what I heard from Jehovah of armies the God of Israel, I announced to you. The burden of Dumah. He called to me from Seir, Watch, what of the night? watch, what of the night? The watch said, I will mark out morning, and also night; if ye will seek, seek ye: turn back, come.
