30 Babylon’s warriors have ceased to fight,
    they remain in their strongholds;
Dried up is their strength,
    they have become women.
Burned down are their homes,
    broken their gates.
31 One runner meets another,
    herald meets herald,
Telling the king of Babylon
    that his entire city has been taken.(A)
32 The fords have been seized,
    marshes set on fire,
    warriors panic.
