51:1 Thus saith [H559] the LORD [H3068] ; Behold, I will raise up [H5782] against Babylon [H894] , and against them that dwell [H3427] in the midst [H3820] of them that rise up [H6965] against me, a destroying [H7843] wind [H7307] ;(midst: Heb. heart)

51:2 And will send [H7971] unto Babylon [H894] fanners [H2114] , that shall fan [H2219] her, and shall empty [H1238] her land [H776] : for in the day [H3117] of trouble [H7451] they shall be against her round about [H5439] .

51:3 Against [him that] bendeth [H1869] let the archer [H1869] bend [H1869] his bow [H7198] , and against [him that] lifteth himself up [H5927] in his brigandine [H5630] : and spare [H2550] ye not her young men [H970] ; destroy ye utterly [H2763] all her host [H6635] .

51:4 Thus the slain [H2491] shall fall [H5307] in the land [H776] of the Chaldeans [H3778] , and [they that are] thrust through [H1856] in her streets [H2351] .

51:5 For Israel [H3478] [hath] not [been] forsaken [H488] , nor Judah [H3063] of his God [H430] , of the LORD [H3068] of hosts [H6635] ; though their land [H776] was filled [H4390] with sin [H817] against the Holy One [H6918] of Israel [H3478] .

51:6 Flee out [H5127] of the midst [H8432] of Babylon [H894] , and deliver [H4422] every man [H376] his soul [H5315] : be not cut off [H1826] in her iniquity [H5771] ; for this [is] the time [H6256] of the LORD'S [H3068] vengeance [H5360] ; he will render [H7999] unto her a recompence [H1576] .

51:7 Babylon [H894] [hath been] a golden [H2091] cup [H3563] in the LORD'S [H3068] hand [H3027] , that made all the earth [H776] drunken [H7937] : the nations [H1471] have drunken [H8354] of her wine [H3196] ; therefore the nations [H1471] are mad [H1984] .

51:8 Babylon [H894] is suddenly [H6597] fallen [H5307] and destroyed [H7665] : howl [H3213] for her; take [H3947] balm [H6875] for her pain [H4341] , if so be she may be healed [H7495] .

51:9 We would have healed [H7495] Babylon [H894] , but she is not healed [H7495] : forsake [H5800] her, and let us go [H3212] every one [H376] into his own country [H776] : for her judgment [H4941] reacheth [H5060] unto heaven [H8064] , and is lifted up [H5375] [even] to the skies [H7834] .

51:10 The LORD [H3068] hath brought forth [H3318] our righteousness [H6666] : come [H935] , and let us declare [H5608] in Zion [H6726] the work [H4639] of the LORD [H3068] our God [H430] .

51:11 Make bright [H1305] the arrows [H2671] ; gather [H4390] the shields [H7982] : the LORD [H3068] hath raised up [H5782] the spirit [H7307] of the kings [H4428] of the Medes [H4074] : for his device [H4209] [is] against Babylon [H894] , to destroy [H7843] it; because it [is] the vengeance [H5360] of the LORD [H3068] , the vengeance [H5360] of his temple [H1964] .(bright: Heb. pure)

51:12 Set up [H5375] the standard [H5251] upon the walls [H2346] of Babylon [H894] , make the watch [H4929] strong [H2388] , set up [H6965] the watchmen [H8104] , prepare [H3559] the ambushes [H693] : for the LORD [H3068] hath both devised [H2161] and done [H6213] that which he spake [H1696] against the inhabitants [H3427] of Babylon [H894] .(ambushes: Heb. liers in wait)

51:13 O thou that dwellest [H7931] [H7931] upon many [H7227] waters [H4325] , abundant [H7227] in treasures [H214] , thine end [H7093] is come [H935] , [and] the measure [H520] of thy covetousness [H1215] .

51:14 The LORD [H3068] of hosts [H6635] hath sworn [H7650] by himself [H5315] , [saying], Surely I will fill [H4390] thee with men [H120] , as with caterpillers [H3218] ; and they shall lift up [H6030] a shout [H1959] against thee.(by himself: Heb. by his soul)(lift up: Heb. utter)

51:15 He hath made [H6213] the earth [H776] by his power [H3581] , he hath established [H3559] the world [H8398] by his wisdom [H2451] , and hath stretched out [H5186] the heaven [H8064] by his understanding [H8394] .

51:16 When he uttereth [H5414] [his] voice [H6963] , [there is] a multitude [H1995] of waters [H4325] in the heavens [H8064] ; and he causeth the vapours [H5387] to ascend [H5927] from the ends [H7097] of the earth [H776] : he maketh [H6213] lightnings [H1300] with rain [H4306] , and bringeth forth [H3318] the wind [H7307] out of his treasures [H214] .(multitude: or, noise)

51:17 Every man [H120] is brutish [H1197] by [his] knowledge [H1847] ; every founder [H6884] is confounded [H3001] by the graven image [H6459] : for his molten image [H5262] [is] falsehood [H8267] , and [there is] no breath [H7307] in them.(is brutish: or, is more brutish than to know)

51:18 They [are] vanity [H1892] , the work [H4639] of errors [H8595] : in the time [H6256] of their visitation [H6486] they shall perish [H6] .

51:19 The portion [H2506] of Jacob [H3290] [is] not like them; for he [is] the former [H3335] of all things: and [Israel is] the rod [H7626] of his inheritance [H5159] : the LORD [H3068] of hosts [H6635] [is] his name [H8034] .

51:20 Thou [art] my battle axe [H4661] [and] weapons [H3627] of war [H4421] : for with thee will I break in pieces [H5310] the nations [H1471] , and with thee will I destroy [H7843] kingdoms [H4467] ;(with thee: or, in thee, or, by thee)

51:21 And with thee will I break in pieces [H5310] the horse [H5483] and his rider [H7392] ; and with thee will I break in pieces [H5310] the chariot [H7393] and his rider [H7392] ;

51:22 With thee also will I break in pieces [H5310] man [H376] and woman [H802] ; and with thee will I break in pieces [H5310] old [H2205] and young [H5288] ; and with thee will I break in pieces [H5310] the young man [H970] and the maid [H1330] ;

51:23 I will also break in pieces [H5310] with thee the shepherd [H7462] and his flock [H5739] ; and with thee will I break in pieces [H5310] the husbandman [H406] and his yoke of oxen [H6776] ; and with thee will I break in pieces [H5310] captains [H6346] and rulers [H5461] .

51:24 And I will render [H7999] unto Babylon [H894] and to all the inhabitants [H3427] of Chaldea [H3778] all their evil [H7451] that they have done [H6213] in Zion [H6726] in your sight [H5869] , saith [H5002] the LORD [H3068] .

51:25 Behold, I [am] against thee, O destroying [H4889] mountain [H2022] , saith [H5002] the LORD [H3068] , which destroyest [H7843] all the earth [H776] : and I will stretch out [H5186] mine hand [H3027] upon thee, and roll thee down [H1556] from the rocks [H5553] , and will make [H5414] thee a burnt [H8316] mountain [H2022] .

51:26 And they shall not take [H3947] of thee a stone [H68] for a corner [H6438] , nor a stone [H68] for foundations [H4146] ; but thou shalt be desolate [H8077] for ever [H5769] , saith [H5002] the LORD [H3068] .(desolate: Heb. everlasting desolations)

51:27 Set ye up [H5375] a standard [H5251] in the land [H776] , blow [H8628] the trumpet [H7782] among the nations [H1471] , prepare [H6942] the nations [H1471] against her, call together [H8085] against her the kingdoms [H4467] of Ararat [H780] , Minni [H4508] , and Ashchenaz [H813] ; appoint [H6485] a captain [H2951] against her; cause the horses [H5483] to come up [H5927] as the rough [H5569] caterpillers [H3218] .

51:28 Prepare [H6942] against her the nations [H1471] with the kings [H4428] of the Medes [H4074] , the captains [H6346] thereof, and all the rulers [H5461] thereof, and all the land [H776] of his dominion [H4475] .

51:29 And the land [H776] shall tremble [H7493] and sorrow [H2342] : for every purpose [H4284] of the LORD [H3068] shall be performed [H6965] against Babylon [H894] , to make [H7760] the land [H776] of Babylon [H894] a desolation [H8047] without an inhabitant [H3427] .

51:30 The mighty men [H1368] of Babylon [H894] have forborn [H2308] to fight [H3898] , they have remained [H3427] in [their] holds [H4679] : their might [H1369] hath failed [H5405] ; they became as women [H802] : they have burned [H3341] her dwellingplaces [H4908] ; her bars [H1280] are broken [H7665] .

51:31 One post [H7323] shall run [H7323] to meet [H7125] another [H7323] , and one messenger [H5046] to meet [H7125] another [H5046] , to shew [H5046] the king [H4428] of Babylon [H894] that his city [H5892] is taken [H3920] at [one] end [H7097] ,

51:32 And that the passages [H4569] are stopped [H8610] , and the reeds [H98] they have burned [H8313] with fire [H784] , and the men [H582] of war [H4421] are affrighted [H926] .

51:33 For thus saith [H559] the LORD [H3068] of hosts [H6635] , the God [H430] of Israel [H3478] ; The daughter [H1323] of Babylon [H894] [is] like a threshingfloor [H1637] , [it is] time [H6256] to thresh [H1869] her: yet a little while [H4592] , and the time [H6256] of her harvest [H7105] shall come [H935] .(it is: or, in the time that he thresheth her)

51:34 Nebuchadrezzar [H5019] the king [H4428] of Babylon [H894] hath devoured [H398] me, he hath crushed [H2000] me, he hath made [H3322] me an empty [H7385] vessel [H3627] , he hath swallowed me up [H1104] like a dragon [H8577] , he hath filled [H4390] his belly [H3770] with my delicates [H5730] , he hath cast me out [H1740] .

51:35 The violence [H2555] done to me and to my flesh [H7607] [be] upon Babylon [H894] , shall the inhabitant [H3427] of Zion [H6726] say [H559] ; and my blood [H1818] upon the inhabitants [H3427] of Chaldea [H3778] , shall Jerusalem [H3389] say [H559] .(The violence: Heb. My violence)(flesh: or, remainder)(inhabitant: Heb. inhabitress)

51:36 Therefore thus saith [H559] the LORD [H3068] ; Behold, I will plead [H7378] thy cause [H7379] , and take vengeance [H5358] for thee [H5360] ; and I will dry up [H2717] her sea [H3220] , and make her springs [H4726] dry [H3001] .

51:37 And Babylon [H894] shall become heaps [H1530] , a dwellingplace [H4583] for dragons [H8577] , an astonishment [H8047] , and an hissing [H8322] , without an inhabitant [H3427] .

51:38 They shall roar [H7580] together [H3162] like lions [H3715] : they shall yell [H5286] as lions' [H738] whelps [H1484] .(yell: or, shake themselves)

51:39 In their heat [H2527] I will make [H7896] their feasts [H4960] , and I will make them drunken [H7937] , that they may rejoice [H5937] , and sleep [H3462] a perpetual [H5769] sleep [H8142] , and not wake [H6974] , saith [H5002] the LORD [H3068] .

51:40 I will bring them down [H3381] like lambs [H3733] to the slaughter [H2873] , like rams [H352] with he goats [H6260] .

51:41 How is Sheshach [H8347] taken [H3920] ! and how is the praise [H8416] of the whole earth [H776] surprised [H8610] ! how is Babylon [H894] become an astonishment [H8047] among the nations [H1471] !

51:42 The sea [H3220] is come up [H5927] upon Babylon [H894] : she is covered [H3680] with the multitude [H1995] of the waves [H1530] thereof.

51:43 Her cities [H5892] are a desolation [H8047] , a dry [H6723] land [H776] , and a wilderness [H6160] , a land [H776] wherein no man [H376] dwelleth [H3427] , neither doth [any] son [H1121] of man [H120] pass [H5674] thereby [H2004] .

51:44 And I will punish [H6485] Bel [H1078] in Babylon [H894] , and I will bring forth [H3318] out of his mouth [H6310] that which he hath swallowed up [H1105] : and the nations [H1471] shall not flow together [H5102] any more unto him: yea, the wall [H2346] of Babylon [H894] shall fall [H5307] .

51:45 My people [H5971] , go ye out [H3318] of the midst [H8432] of her, and deliver [H4422] ye every man [H376] his soul [H5315] from the fierce [H2740] anger [H639] of the LORD [H3068] .

51:46 And lest your heart [H3824] faint [H7401] , and ye fear [H3372] for the rumour [H8052] that shall be heard [H8085] in the land [H776] ; a rumour [H8052] shall both come [H935] [one] year [H8141] , and after [H310] that in [another] year [H8141] [shall come] a rumour [H8052] , and violence [H2555] in the land [H776] , ruler [H4910] against ruler [H4910] .(lest: or, let not)

51:47 Therefore, behold, the days [H3117] come [H935] , that I will do judgment [H6485] upon the graven images [H6456] of Babylon [H894] : and her whole land [H776] shall be confounded [H954] , and all her slain [H2491] shall fall [H5307] in the midst [H8432] of her.(do: Heb. visit upon)

51:48 Then the heaven [H8064] and the earth [H776] , and all that [is] therein, shall sing [H7442] for Babylon [H894] : for the spoilers [H7703] shall come [H935] unto her from the north [H6828] , saith [H5002] the LORD [H3068] .

51:49 As [H1571] Babylon [H894] [hath caused] the slain [H2491] of Israel [H3478] to fall [H5307] , so at Babylon [H894] shall fall [H5307] the slain [H2491] of all the earth [H776] .(As: or, Both Babylon is to fall, O ye slain of Israel, and with Babylon, etc)(the earth: or, the country)

51:50 Ye that have escaped [H6405] the sword [H2719] , go away [H1980] , stand not still [H5975] : remember [H2142] the LORD [H3068] afar off [H7350] , and let Jerusalem [H3389] come [H5927] into your mind [H3824] .

51:51 We are confounded [H954] , because we have heard [H8085] reproach [H2781] : shame [H3639] hath covered [H3680] our faces [H6440] : for strangers [H2114] are come [H935] into the sanctuaries [H4720] of the LORD'S [H3068] house [H1004] .

51:52 Wherefore, behold, the days [H3117] come [H935] , saith [H5002] the LORD [H3068] , that I will do judgment [H6485] upon her graven images [H6456] : and through all her land [H776] the wounded [H2491] shall groan [H602] .

51:53 Though Babylon [H894] should mount up [H5927] to heaven [H8064] , and though she should fortify [H1219] the height [H4791] of her strength [H5797] , [yet] [H227] from me shall spoilers [H7703] come [H935] unto her, saith [H5002] the LORD [H3068] .

51:54 A sound [H6963] of a cry [H2201] [cometh] from Babylon [H894] , and great [H1419] destruction [H7667] from the land [H776] of the Chaldeans [H3778] :

51:55 Because the LORD [H3068] hath spoiled [H7703] Babylon [H894] , and destroyed [H6] out of her the great [H1419] voice [H6963] ; when her waves [H1530] do roar [H1993] like great [H7227] waters [H4325] , a noise [H7588] of their voice [H6963] is uttered [H5414] :

51:56 Because the spoiler [H7703] is come [H935] upon her, [even] upon Babylon [H894] , and her mighty men [H1368] are taken [H3920] , every one of their bows [H7198] is broken [H2865] : for the LORD [H3068] God [H410] of recompences [H1578] shall surely [H7999] requite [H7999] .

51:57 And I will make drunk [H7937] her princes [H8269] , and her wise [H2450] [men], her captains [H6346] , and her rulers [H5461] , and her mighty men [H1368] : and they shall sleep [H3462] a perpetual [H5769] sleep [H8142] , and not wake [H6974] , saith [H5002] the King [H4428] , whose name [H8034] [is] the LORD [H3068] of hosts [H6635] .

51:58 Thus saith [H559] the LORD [H3068] of hosts [H6635] ; The broad [H7342] walls [H2346] of Babylon [H894] shall be utterly [H6209] broken [H6209] , and her high [H1364] gates [H8179] shall be burned [H3341] with fire [H784] ; and the people [H5971] shall labour [H3021] in vain [H7385] , and the folk [H3816] in [H1767] the fire [H784] , and they shall be weary [H3286] .(The broad: or, The walls of broad Babylon)(broken: or, made naked)

51:59 The word [H1697] which Jeremiah [H3414] the prophet [H5030] commanded [H6680] Seraiah [H8304] the son [H1121] of Neriah [H5374] , the son [H1121] of Maaseiah [H4271] , when he went [H3212] with Zedekiah [H6667] the king [H4428] of Judah [H3063] into Babylon [H894] in the fourth [H7243] year [H8141] of his reign [H4427] . And [this] Seraiah [H8304] [was] a quiet [H4496] prince [H8269] .(with: or, on the behalf of)(quiet: or, prince of Menucha, or, chief chamberlain)

51:60 So Jeremiah [H3414] wrote [H3789] in a [H259] book [H5612] all the evil [H7451] that should come [H935] upon Babylon [H894] , [even] all these words [H1697] that are written [H3789] against Babylon [H894] .

51:61 And Jeremiah [H3414] said [H559] to Seraiah [H8304] , When thou comest [H935] to Babylon [H894] , and shalt see [H7200] , and shalt read [H7121] all these words [H1697] ;

51:62 Then shalt thou say [H559] , O LORD [H3068] , thou hast spoken [H1696] against this place [H4725] , to cut it off [H3772] , that none shall remain [H3427] in it, neither man [H120] nor beast [H929] , but that it shall be desolate [H8077] for ever [H5769] .(desolate: Heb. desolations)

51:63 And it shall be, when thou hast made an end [H3615] of reading [H7121] this book [H5612] , [that] thou shalt bind [H7194] a stone [H68] to it, and cast [H7993] it into the midst [H8432] of Euphrates [H6578] :

51:64 And thou shalt say [H559] , Thus shall Babylon [H894] sink [H8257] , and shall not rise [H6965] from [H6440] the evil [H7451] that I will bring [H935] upon her: and they shall be weary [H3286] . Thus far [are] the words [H1697] of Jeremiah [H3414] .
