21 1 Of the destruction of Babylon by the Persians and Medes. 11 The ruin of Idumea, 13 and of Arabia.
1 The burden of the [a]desert sea. As the whirlwinds in the South used to pass from the wilderness, so shall it [b]come from the horrible land.
2 A grievous vision was showed unto me, The [c]Transgressor against a transgressor, and the destroyer against a destroyer. Go up [d]Elam, besiege Media: I have caused all the mourning [e]thereof to cease.
3 Therefore are my [f]loins filled with sorrow: sorrows have taken me as the sorrows of a woman that travaileth: I was bowed down when I heard it, and I was amazed when I saw it.
