(A)Lift up a standard on the [a](B)bare hill,
Raise your voice to them,
(C)Wave the hand that they may (D)enter the doors of the nobles.
I have commanded My consecrated ones,
I have even called My (E)mighty warriors,
My proudly exulting ones,
To execute My anger.
A (F)sound of tumult on the mountains,
Like that of many people!
A sound of the uproar of kingdoms,
Of nations gathered together!
The Lord of hosts is mustering the army for battle.
They are coming from a far country,
From the [b](G)farthest horizons,
The Lord and His instruments of (H)indignation,
To (I)destroy the whole land.

For a nation has come up against her out of the (A)north; it will make her land (B)an object of horror, and there will be (C)no inhabitant in it. Both man and beast have wandered off, they have gone away!

“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

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.

The kings of the Medes,
