57 I will make Babylon’s rulers and wise men drunk.
    I will make her governors, officers and soldiers drunk, too.
Then they will sleep forever and never wake up,” says the King.

58 This is what the Lord of heaven’s armies says:

“Babylon’s thick wall will be pulled down.
    Her high gates will be burned.
The people will work hard, but it won’t help.
    Their work will only become fuel for the flames!”
