Woe to them because their day has come,
the time of their punishment.(A)

The Humiliation of Babylon

28 There is a voice of fugitives and refugees
from the land of Babylon.

the vengeance for his temple.(B)
29 Summon the archers to Babylon,
all who string the bow;

Repay her according to her deeds;(C)
just as she has done, do the same to her,
for she has acted arrogantly against the Lord,
against the Holy One of Israel.(D)
