New International Reader's Version
5 They come from lands far away.
They come from the farthest places on earth.
The Lord and those weapons of his anger
are coming to destroy the whole country of Babylon.
6 Cry out! The day of the Lord is near.
The Mighty One is coming to destroy the Babylonians.
7 Their hands won’t be able to help them.
Everyone’s heart will melt away in fear.
