Jeremiah 50

The judgment of Babylon.

Jeremiah 50:1 The word which Yahweh spake, Against Babylon, Against the land of the Chaldeans, through Jeremiah the prophet: Jeremiah 50:2 Tell ye among the nations, And let it be heard, And lift ye up a standard, Let it be heard, do not conceal: Say ye—Captured, is Babylon, Confounded, is Bel, Broken in pieces, is Merodach, Confounded, are her images, Broken down, her manufactured gods; Jeremiah 50:3 For there hath come up against her—a nation out of the North, The same, shall make her land an astonishment, And there shall be none to dwell therein,—Both man and beast, have removed—have gone!

The redemption of Israel.

Jeremiah 50:4 In those days, and at that time, Declareth Yahweh, Shall the sons of Israel come in, They, and the sons of Judah, together: Weeping as they travel, so shall they journey on, And, Yahweh their God, shall they seek; Jeremiah 50:5 To Zion, shall they ask the way, Hitherward, their faces, Come and let us join ourselves unto Yahweh, In a covenant age-abiding, which shall not be forgotten. Jeremiah 50:6 Wandering sheep, have, my people, been, Their own shepherds, led them astray, On the mountains, they seduced them, From mountain to hill, have they gone, They have forgotten their couching-place. Jeremiah 50:7 All who found them, devoured them, And, their adversaries, said—We shall not be guilty,—Because they have sinned, Against, Yahweh, the pasturage of righteousness, Yea, the hope of their fathers—Yahweh. Jeremiah 50:8 Remove ye out of the midst of Babylon, And, out of the land of the Chaldeans, come ye forth,—And become ye like he-goats before the flock;

The judgment of Babylon.

Jeremiah 50:9 For lo! I, am rousing and bringing up against Babylon, a gathered host of great nations, out of the land of the North, And they shall array themselves against her, From thence, shall she be captured,—His arrows, are as of a hero making childless, None shall return, empty. Jeremiah 50:10 So shall the Chaldeans become a spoil,—All her spoilers, shall be satisfied, Declareth Yahweh; Jeremiah 50:11 Because they used to be glad, Because they used to be uproarious, When plundering mine inheritance,—Because they used to caper about as a heifer at grass, And bellow like bulls. Jeremiah 50:12 Your mother, hath turned very pale, She that bare you, hath turned red,—Lo! the last of nations, is—A desert, A parched land, and, A waste plain. Jeremiah 50:13 Because of the vexation of Yahweh, she shall not be inhabited, But shall become a complete, desolation,—Every one passing by Babylon, shall be astonished and hiss, over all her plagues. Jeremiah 50:14 Set yourselves in array against Babylon round about, All ye who tread the bow, Shoot at her, do not spare so much as an arrow,—For, against Yahweh, hath she sinned. Jeremiah 50:15 Raise a shout against her round about, She hath stretched forth her hand, Fallen, are her buttresses, Torn down, are her walls,—Because, the avenging of Yahweh, it is, Take ye vengeance upon her, As she hath done, do ye, unto her. Jeremiah 50:16 Cut ye off the sower from Babylon, And him that graspeth the sickle, in the time of harvest. From the face of the sword of the oppressor, Each, to his own people, will they turn, and, Each, to his own land, will they flee.

The redemption of Israel.

Jeremiah 50:17 A sheep all alone, is Israel, Lions, have driven him away,—At the first, the king of Assyria, devoured him, And, here, at the last, Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon, hath broken his bones! Jeremiah 50:18 Therefore, Thus, saith Yahweh of hosts, God of Israel, Behold me! bringing punishment against the king of Babylon, and against his land,—Just as I brought punishment against the king of Assyria. Jeremiah 50:19 So will I bring back Israel unto his own pasture, And he shall feed upon Carmel and Bashan; And, in the hill country of Ephraim and Gilead, shall, his soul, be satisfied. Jeremiah 50:20 In those days, and in that time, Declareth Yahweh, The iniquity of Israel, shall be sought, and, there shall be, none, And the sins of Judah, and they shall not be found; For I will grant pardon to them whom I suffer to remain.

The judgment of Babylon.

Jeremiah 50:21 Against the land of Merathaim, go thou up against her, And against the inhabitants of Pekod,—Lay waste and devote to destruction after them, Declareth Yahweh, And do according to all which I have commanded thee. Jeremiah 50:22 The, sound of battle, is in the earth,—And a great destruction. Jeremiah 50:23 How, is cut and broken, the hammer of all the earth! How hath, Babylon, become an astonishment, among the nations! Jeremiah 50:24 I laid a snare for thee, yea, and thou wast captured, O Babylon, when, thou, wast not aware,—Thou wast found out, yea and taken, For, with Yahweh, hadst thou contended. Jeremiah 50:25 Yahweh opened, his armoury, and brought out his weapons of indignation,—For, a work, it is, pertaining to My Lord, Yahweh of hosts, in the land of the Chaldeans. Jeremiah 50:26 Come ye against her from farthest parts, Throw open her granaries, Cast her up as heaps, and devote her to destruction,—Do not let her have, a remnant. Jeremiah 50:27 Cut up all her bullocks, Let them go down to the slaughter,—Alas for them! For their day, hath come, Their time for punishment. Jeremiah 50:28 The voice, Of them who are in flight, and, Of such as are escaping, out of the land of Babylon,—To tell in Zion, The avenging of Yahweh our God, The avenging of his temple. Jeremiah 50:29 Publish against Babylon, ye chiefs of all who tread the bow—Encamp against her round about, Let there be none to escape, Recompense to her according to her work, According to all which she did, do ye to her,—For, Against Yahweh, hath she acted presumptuously, Against the Holy One of Israel. Jeremiah 50:30 Therefore, shall her young men fall in her broadways,—And, all her men of war, be silenced in that day, Declareth Yahweh. Jeremiah 50:31 Behold me! against thee, most insolent one, Declareth My Lord, Yahweh of hosts; For thy day, hath come, Thy time for punishment; Jeremiah 50:32 So shall the most insolent one stumble, and fall, And he shall have none, to lift him up,—And I will kindle a fire in his cities, which shall devour all who are round about him.

The redemption of Israel.

Jeremiah 50:33 Thus, saith Yahweh of hosts—Oppressed, were the sons of Israel and the sons of Judah, together,—And, all who took them captive, Held them fast, Refused to let them go:— Jeremiah 50:34 Their Redeemer, can hold fast, Yahweh of hosts, is his name, He will, thoroughly plead, their plea,—That he may quiet the earth, And disquiet the inhabitants of Babylon.

The judgment of Babylon.

Jeremiah 50:35 A sword, is over the Chaldeans, Declareth Yahweh,—And against the inhabitants of Babylon, And against her princes, And against her wise men: Jeremiah 50:36 A sword, is against the praters, And they shall be shewn to be foolish, A sword, is against her heroes, And they shall be dismayed: Jeremiah 50:37 A sword, is against his horses and against his chariots, and against all the rabble that are in her midst, And they shall become women,—A sword, is against her treasures, And they shall be made a prey: Jeremiah 50:38 A drought, is against her waters, And they shall be dried up,—For, a land of images, it is, And, with their shocking things, they act as men who are mad: Jeremiah 50:39 Therefore, shall the criers, dwell with, the howlers, Yea ostriches, shall dwell therein,—So shall it be dwelt in no more for ever, Neither shall it be inhabited, unto generation after generation. Jeremiah 50:40 Like the divine overthrow of Sodom and Gomorrah and her neighbours, Declareth Yahweh,—There shall not dwell there—a man, Nor sojourn therein—a son of the earth-born. Jeremiah 50:41 Lo! a people coming in from the North,—Yea, a great nation, and many kings, shall be roused up out of the remote parts of the earth: Jeremiah 50:42 Bow and javelin, shall they grasp, Cruel, are they, and will not have compassion, Their voice, like the sea, will roar, And, on horses, will they ride,—Set in array, as one man, for battle, Against thee, O daughter of Babylon! Jeremiah 50:43 The king of Babylon hath heard, the report of them, And unnerved, are his hands,—Anguish, hath seized him, Writhing pain, as a woman in child-birth. Jeremiah 50:44 Lo! as a lion, shall he come up from the majesty of the Jordan, Unto the pasture perennial, But I will wink—I will make them run away therefrom, Who, then shall be the Chosen One whom, against it, I may set in charge? For who, shall be like unto, me? And who, shall appoint, me, a, time? And who, is, the Shepherd that shall stand before, me? Jeremiah 50:45 Therefore, hear ye, The counsel of Yahweh, which he hath counselled against Babylon, And his devices which he hath devised against the land of the Chaldeans,—Surely the little ones of the flock, shall drag them away, Surely he will cause the pasture to be astounded over them. Jeremiah 50:46 At the noise of the taking of Babylon, the earth, trembled,—And, the outcry, among the nations, was heard.
