The king of Babylon beat people in anger.
    He beat them again and again.
He ruled the people in anger.
    He kept on doing terrible things to the people.
But now, the whole land rests and is quiet.
    Now the people begin to sing.
Even the pine trees are happy.
    And the cedar trees of Lebanon rejoice.
They say, “The king has fallen.
    No one will ever cut us down again.”

    gloat over you and say,
“Now that you have been laid low,
    no one comes to cut us down.”(G)
