Isaiah 21:9-11 Easy-to-Read Version (ERV)

Look! I see a man in a chariot
    with a team of horses.[a]

The messenger said,
    “Babylon has been defeated!
    It has fallen to the ground!
All the statues of her false gods
    were thrown to the ground and broken to pieces.”

10 My people, you will be like the grain crushed on my threshing floor. I have told you everything I heard from the Lord All-Powerful, the God of Israel.
