A Message about Babylon

21This message came to me concerning Babylon - the desert by the sea. Disaster is roaring down on you from the desert, like a whirlwind sweeping in from the Negev.H4853H4057H3220H5492H5045H2498H935H4057H3372H776 2I see a terrifying vision. I see the betrayer betraying, the destroyer destroying. Go ahead, you Elamites and Medes, attack and lay siege. I will make an end to all the groaning Babylon caused.H7186H2380H5046H898H898H7703H7703H5927H5867H6696H4074H585H7673 3My stomach aches and burns with pain. Sharp pangs of anguish are upon me, like those of a woman in labor. I grow faint when I hear what God is planning; I am too afraid to look.H4975H4390H2479H6735H270H6735H3205H5753H8085H926H7200 4My mind reels and my heart races. I longed for evening to come, but now I am terrified of the dark.H3824H8582H6427H1204H5399H2837H7760H2731 5Look! They are preparing a great feast. They are spreading rugs for people to sit on. Everyone is eating and drinking. But quick! Grab your shields and prepare for battle. You are being attacked!H6186H7979H6822H6844H398H8354H6965H8269H4886H4043 6Meanwhile, the Lord said to me, “Put a watchman on the city wall. Let him shout out what he sees.H136H559H3212H5975H6822H5046H7200 7He should look for chariots drawn by pairs of horses, and for riders on donkeys and camels. Let the watchman be fully alert.”H7200H7393H6776H6571H7393H2543H7393H1581H7181H7182H7227H7182 8Then the watchman called out, “Day after day I have stood on the watchtower, my lord. Night after night I have remained at my post.H7121H738H136H5975H8548H4707H3119H5324H4931H3915 9Now at last - look! Here comes a man in a chariot with a pair of horses!” Then the watchman said, “Babylon is fallen, fallen! All the idols of Babylon lie broken on the ground!”H935H7393H376H6776H6571H6030H559H894H5307H5307H6456H430H7665H776 10O my people, threshed and winnowed, I have told you everything the Lord of Heaven’s Armies has said, everything the God of Israel has told me.H4098H1121H1637H8085H3068H6635H430H3478H5046

A Message about Edom

11This message came to me concerning Edom. Someone from Edom keeps calling to me, “Watchman, how much longer until morning? When will the night be over?”H4853H1746H7121H8165H8104H3915H8104H3915 12The watchman replies, “Morning is coming, but night will soon return. If you wish to ask again, then come back and ask.”H8104H559H1242H857H3915H1158H1158H7725H857

A Message about Arabia

13This message came to me concerning Arabia. O caravans from Dedan, hide in the deserts of Arabia.H4853H6152H3293H6152H3885H736H1720 14O people of Tema, bring water to these thirsty people, food to these weary refugees.H3427H776H8485H857H4325H7125H6771H6923H3899H5074 15They have fled from the sword, from the drawn sword, from the bent bow and the terrors of battle.H5074H6440H2719H6440H5203H2719H6440H1869H7198H6440H3514H4421 16The Lord said to me, “Within a year, counting each day, all the glory of Kedar will come to an end.H136H559H8141H8141H7916H3519H6938H3615 17Only a few of its courageous archers will survive. I, the Lord, the God of Israel, have spoken!”H7605H4557H7198H1368H1121H6938H4591H3068H430H3478H1696
