19 Babylon,(A) the jewel of kingdoms,(B)
    the pride and glory(C) of the Babylonians,[a]
will be overthrown(D) by God
    like Sodom and Gomorrah.(E)
20 She will never be inhabited(F)
    or lived in through all generations;
there no nomads(G) will pitch their tents,
    there no shepherds will rest their flocks.
21 But desert creatures(H) will lie there,
    jackals(I) will fill her houses;
there the owls(J) will dwell,
    and there the wild goats(K) will leap about.
22 Hyenas(L) will inhabit her strongholds,(M)
    jackals(N) her luxurious palaces.
Her time is at hand,(O)
    and her days will not be prolonged.(P)
