023:021:001
The burden of the desert of the sea.
As whirlwinds in the south pass through;
so it cometh from the desert,
from a terrible land.


023:021:002
A grievous vision is declared unto me;
the treacherous dealer dealeth treacherously,
and the spoiler spoileth.
Go up,
O Elam:
besiege,
O Media;
all the sighing thereof have I made to cease.


023:021:003
Therefore are my loins filled with pain:
pangs have taken hold upon me,
as the pangs of a woman that travaileth:
I was bowed down at the hearing of it;
I was dismayed at the seeing of it.


023:021:004
My heart panted,
fearfulness affrighted me:
the night of my pleasure hath he turned into fear unto me.


023:021:005
Prepare the table,
watch in the watchtower,
eat,
drink:
arise,
ye princes,
and anoint the shield.


023:021:006
For thus hath the LORD said unto me,
Go,
set a watchman,
let him declare what he seeth.


023:021:007
And he saw a chariot with a couple of horsemen,
a chariot of asses,
and a chariot of camels;
and he hearkened diligently with much heed:


023:021:008
And he cried,
A lion:
My lord,
I stand continually upon the watchtower in the daytime,
and I am set in my ward whole nights:


023:021:009
And,
behold,
here cometh a chariot of men,
with a couple of horsemen.
And he answered and said,
Babylon is fallen,
is fallen;
and all the graven images of her gods he hath broken unto the ground.


023:021:010
O my threshing,
and the corn of my floor:
that which I have heard of the LORD of hosts,
the God of Israel,
have I declared unto you.


023:021:011
The burden of Dumah.
He calleth to me out of Seir,
Watchman,
what of the night?
Watchman,
what of the night?


023:021:012
The watchman said,
The morning cometh,
and also the night:
if ye will enquire,
enquire ye:
return,
come.


023:021:013
The burden upon Arabia.
In the forest in Arabia shall ye lodge,
O ye travelling companies of Dedanim.


023:021:014
The inhabitants of the land of Tema brought water to him that was thirsty,
they prevented with their bread him that fled.


023:021:015
For they fled from the swords,
from the drawn sword,
and from the bent bow,
and from the grievousness of war.


023:021:016
For thus hath the LORD said unto me,
Within a year,
according to the years of an hireling,
and all the glory of Kedar shall fail:


023:021:017
And the residue of the number of archers,
the mighty men of the children of Kedar,
shall be diminished:
for the LORD God of Israel hath spoken it.
