International Standard Version
30 The warriors of Babylon have stopped fighting.
They stay in their strongholds;
their strength is dried up;
they have become like women.
Her buildings are set on fire;
the bars of her gates are broken.
31 One runner runs to meet another runner,[a]
and one messenger to meet another messenger,[b]
to tell the king of Babylon that his city has been seized
from one end to the other.[c]
32 The fords have been captured,
and the marshes burned with fire.
The soldiers are terrified.
