023:013:001
The burden of Babylon,
which Isaiah the son of Amoz did see.


023:013:002
Lift ye up a banner upon the high mountain,
exalt the voice unto them,
shake the hand,
that they may go into the gates of the nobles.


023:013:003
I have commanded my sanctified ones,
I have also called my mighty ones for mine anger,
even them that rejoice in my highness.


023:013:004
The noise of a multitude in the mountains,
like as of a great people;
a tumultuous noise of the kingdoms of nations gathered together:
the LORD of hosts mustereth the host of the battle.


023:013:005
They come from a far country,
from the end of heaven,
even the LORD,
and the weapons of his indignation,
to destroy the whole land.


023:013:006
Howl ye;
for the day of the LORD is at hand;
it shall come as a destruction from the Almighty.


023:013:007
Therefore shall all hands be faint,
and every man's heart shall melt:


023:013:008
And they shall be afraid:
pangs and sorrows shall take hold of them;
they shall be in pain as a woman that travaileth:
they shall be amazed one at another;
their faces shall be as flames.


023:013:009
Behold,
the day of the LORD cometh,
cruel both with wrath and fierce anger,
to lay the land desolate:
and he shall destroy the sinners thereof out of it.


023:013:010
For the stars of heaven and the constellations thereof shall not give their light:
the sun shall be darkened in his going forth,
and the moon shall not cause her light to shine.


023:013:011
And I will punish the world for their evil,
and the wicked for their iniquity;
and I will cause the arrogancy of the proud to cease,
and will lay low the haughtiness of the terrible.


023:013:012
I will make a man more precious than fine gold;
even a man than the golden wedge of Ophir.


023:013:013
Therefore I will shake the heavens,
and the earth shall remove out of her place,
in the wrath of the LORD of hosts,
and in the day of his fierce anger.


023:013:014
And it shall be as the chased roe,
and as a sheep that no man taketh up:
they shall every man turn to his own people,
and flee every one into his own land.


023:013:015
Every one that is found shall be thrust through;
and every one that is joined unto them shall fall by the sword.


023:013:016
Their children also shall be dashed to pieces before their eyes;
their houses shall be spoiled,
and their wives ravished.


023:013:017
Behold,
I will stir up the Medes against them,
which shall not regard silver;
and as for gold,
they shall not delight in it.


023:013:018
Their bows also shall dash the young men to pieces;
and they shall have no pity on the fruit of the womb;
their eyes shall not spare children.


023:013:019
And Babylon,
the glory of kingdoms,
the beauty of the Chaldees' excellency,
shall be as when God overthrew Sodom and Gomorrah.


023:013:020
It shall never be inhabited,
neither shall it be dwelt in from generation to generation:
neither shall the Arabian pitch tent there;
neither shall the shepherds make their fold there.


023:013:021
But wild beasts of the desert shall lie there;
and their houses shall be full of doleful creatures;
and owls shall dwell there,
and satyrs shall dance there.


023:013:022
And the wild beasts of the islands shall cry in their desolate houses,
and dragons in their pleasant palaces:
and her time is near to come,
and her days shall not be prolonged.
