one The prophecy of Babylon that Isaiah the son of Amos spoke.
2 Raise the banner on the open mountain, raise your voice; wave their hand to go to the gates of the lords.
3 I commanded my chosen ones and called for [my] wrath my mighty ones who triumph in my greatness.
4 A big noise on the mountains, as if from a crowded people, a rebellious noise of kingdoms and peoples gathered together: the Lord of hosts is observing a military army.
5 Coming from a distant land, from the edge of heaven, the Lord and the instruments of His wrath to crush the whole earth.

6 Howl, for the day of the Lord is at hand, coming as a destructive power from the Almighty.
7 That is why the hands of all fell, and the heart of each person melted.
eight Terrified, cramps and pain seized them; tormented, like giving birth, look at each other in amazement, their faces flared up.
nine Behold, the day of the Lord comes fierce, with anger and burning fury, to make the earth a desert and destroy its sinners from it.
ten Stars of the heavens and bodies do not give light from themselves; the sun fades when it rises, and the moon does not shine with its light.
eleven I will punish the world for evil, and the wicked for their iniquity, and put an end to the arrogance of the proud, and destroy the arrogance of the oppressors;
12 I’ll make people more expensive than pure gold, and men more expensive than Ophir’s gold.
thirteen For this, heaven will shake, and the earth will move from its place with the fury of the Lord of hosts, on the day of His burning anger.
fourteen Then everyone, like a chased chamois and like abandoned sheep, will turn to his people, and everyone will flee to his land.
fifteen But whoever gets caught will be pierced, and whoever is caught will fall from the sword.
sixteen And their babies will be broken before their eyes; their houses will be plundered and their wives dishonored.
17 Now, I will raise against them the Medes, who do not value silver and are not addicted to gold.
18 Their bows will smite the youths and not spare the fetus of the womb: their eye will not take pity on the children.

19 And Babylon, the beauty of the kingdoms, the pride of the Chaldeans, will be overthrown by God, like Sodom and Gomorrah,
twenty never settled, and in childbirth there will be no inhabitants in it; the Arabian does not throw his tent, and the shepherds with herds will not rest there.
21 But desert animals will dwell in it, and houses will be filled with eagle owls; and ostriches will settle, and shaggy will ride there.
22 Jackals will howl in their chambers, and hyenas in pleasure houses.
