“But now listen! Do you hear it? A cry out of Babylon!
An unearthly wail out of Chaldea!
GOD is taking his wrecking bar to Babylon.
We’ll be hearing the last of her noise—
Death throes like the crashing of waves,
death rattles like the roar of cataracts.
The avenging destroyer is about to enter Babylon:
Her soldiers are taken, her weapons are trashed.
Indeed, GOD is a God who evens things out.
All end up with their just deserts.
