Lexham English Bible
12 your mother will be very ashamed.
She who gave birth to you will be humiliated.[a]
Look, she will be the least of the nations,
a desert,[b] dry land, and wilderness.[c]
13 Because of the anger of Yahweh she will not be inhabited,
but she will be a wasteland, all of her.
Everyone who passes by Babylon will be appalled
and will hiss because of all her wounds.
14 Draw up a battle formation at Babylon all around,
all those who bend the bow, shoot at her.
You must not spare arrows,[d]
for she has sinned against Yahweh.
