Your carriages were heavily loaded,
(B)A burden to the weary beast.

“Declare among the nations,
Proclaim, and [a]set up a standard;
Proclaim—do not conceal it
Say, ‘Babylon is (A)taken, (B)Bel is shamed.
[b]Merodach is broken in pieces;
(C)Her idols are humiliated,
Her images are broken in pieces.’
