“For behold, I am going to (A)arouse and bring up against Babylon
A horde of great nations from the land of the north,
And they will draw up their battle lines against her;
From there she will be taken captive.
Their arrows will be like [a]an expert warrior
Who does not return empty-handed.

  1. Jeremiah 50:9 So some mss and versions; M.T. reads a warrior who makes childless

11 (A)Sharpen the arrows, fill the quivers!
The Lord has aroused the spirit of the kings of the Medes,
Because His purpose is against Babylon to destroy it;
For it is the (B)vengeance of the Lord, vengeance for His temple.

27 (A)Lift up a [a]signal in the land,
Blow a trumpet among the nations!
Consecrate the nations against her,
Summon against her the (B)kingdoms of (C)Ararat, Minni and (D)Ashkenaz;
Appoint a marshal against her,
Bring up the (E)horses like bristly locusts.
