God’s Message to Babylon

21 This is a message about the Desert by the Sea:[a]

Disaster is coming from the desert
    like wind blowing in the south.
    It is coming from a terrible country.
I have seen a terrible vision.
    I see traitors turning against you
    and people taking your wealth.

Elam, attack the people!
    Media, surround the city and attack it!
    I will bring an end to the pain the city causes.

I saw those terrible things, and now I am in pain;
    my pains are like the pains of giving birth.
What I hear makes me very afraid;
    what I see causes me to shake with fear.
