The Lord breaks the scepter of evil rulers;
    he takes away their power.
In anger, the king of Babylon beat the people.
    He never stopped beating them.
He was an evil ruler who ruled in anger.
    He never stopped hurting people.
But now, the whole country rests and is quiet.
    Now the people begin to celebrate.
