New International Version
6 I am raising up the Babylonians,[a](A)
that ruthless and impetuous people,
who sweep across the whole earth(B)
to seize dwellings not their own.(C)
7 They are a feared and dreaded people;(D)
they are a law to themselves
and promote their own honor.
8 Their horses are swifter(E) than leopards,
fiercer than wolves(F) at dusk.
Their cavalry gallops headlong;
their horsemen come from afar.
They fly like an eagle swooping to devour;
