27 Kill all the young men in Babylon.
    Let them be killed.
The time has come for their defeat.
    How terrible it will be for them!
    It is time for them to be punished.
28 Listen to the people running from the country of Babylon!
    They are telling Jerusalem
how the Lord our God is punishing Babylon as it deserves.
    This is because Babylon destroyed his Temple.

29 “Call for the men who shoot arrows
    to come against Babylon.
Tell them to surround the city.
    Don’t let anyone escape.
Pay her back for the bad things she has done.
    Do to her what she has done to other nations.
Babylon acted with pride against the Lord,
    the Holy One of Israel.
