17 Behold, I am going to stir up the Medes against them, Who will not value silver or take pleasure in gold. 18 And their bows will [a]mow down the young men, They will not even have compassion on the fruit of the womb, Nor will their eye pity [b]children. 19 And Babylon, the beauty of kingdoms, the glory of the Chaldeans’ pride, Will be as when God overthrew Sodom and Gomorrah. 20 It will never be inhabited or lived in from generation to generation; Nor will the Arab pitch his tent there, Nor will shepherds make their flocks lie down there. 21 But desert creatures will lie down there, And their houses will be full of [c]owls; Ostriches also will live there, and [d]shaggy goats will frolic there. 22 [e]Hyenas will howl in their fortified towers And jackals in their luxurious palaces. Her fateful time also [f]will soon come And her days will not be prolonged.
