Isaiah 13:20-22 The Passion Translation (TPT)

20 Babylon will never rise again,
    nor will it be inhabited for many generations.
    Bedouins will not even pitch their tents there,
    and shepherds will refuse to rest their flocks there.
21 Wild animals will roam there,
    and their vacant houses will be overrun by eerie creatures[a]
    nothing but owls[b] and goat-shaped demons[c] dancing!
22 Hyenas will howl in her houses,
    and jackals will make their dens in her palaces.
    Babylon’s time is up, and her days are numbered!
