New International Version - UK
9 Look, here comes a man in a chariot
with a team of horses.
And he gives back the answer:
“Babylon has fallen, has fallen!
All the images of its gods
lie shattered on the ground!”’
10 My people who are crushed on the threshing-floor,
I tell you what I have heard
from the Lord Almighty,
from the God of Israel.
A prophecy against Edom
11 A prophecy against Dumah:[a]
Someone calls to me from Seir,
‘Watchman, what is left of the night?
Watchman, what is left of the night?’
- Isaiah 21:11 Dumah, a word play on Edom, means silence or stillness.
