Fallen, Fallen Is Babylon

21 The (A)oracle concerning the wilderness of (B)the sea.

(C)As whirlwinds in the Negeb sweep on,
    it comes from the wilderness,
    from a terrible land.
A stern vision is told to me;
    (D)the traitor betrays,
    and the destroyer destroys.
Go up, O (E)Elam;
    lay siege, O (F)Media;
all the (G)sighing she has caused
    I bring to an end.

    (H)pangs have seized me,
    like the pangs of a woman in labour;

    I am dismayed so that I cannot see.
