Holman Christian Standard Bible
6 For the Lord has said to me,
“Go, post a lookout;
let him report what he sees.
7 When he sees riders—
pairs of horsemen,
riders on donkeys,
riders on camels—
he must pay close attention.”
8 Then the lookout[a] reported,
“Lord, I stand on the watchtower all day,(A)
and I stay at my post all night.
9 Look, riders come—
horsemen in pairs.”
And he answered, saying,
“Babylon has fallen,(B) has fallen.
All the images of her gods
have been shattered on the ground.”(C)
