40 “I will lead them off to be slaughtered
like lambs, rams, and male goats.”#tn Heb “I will bring them down like lambs to be slaughtered, like rams and he goats.”sn This statement is highly ironic in light of the fact that the Babylonians were compared to lions and lion cubs (v. 38). Here they are like lambs, rams, and male goats which are to be lead off to be slaughtered.
