New International Version
45 “Come out(D) of her, my people!
Run(E) for your lives!
Run from the fierce anger(F) of the Lord.
46 Do not lose heart(G) or be afraid(H)
when rumors(I) are heard in the land;
one rumor comes this year, another the next,
rumors of violence in the land
and of ruler against ruler.
47 For the time will surely come
when I will punish the idols(J) of Babylon;
her whole land will be disgraced(K)
and her slain will all lie fallen within her.(L)
48 Then heaven and earth and all that is in them
will shout(M) for joy over Babylon,
for out of the north(N)
destroyers(O) will attack her,”
declares the Lord.
49 “Babylon must fall because of Israel’s slain,
just as the slain in all the earth
have fallen because of Babylon.(P)
50 You who have escaped the sword,
leave(Q) and do not linger!
Remember(R) the Lord in a distant land,(S)
and call to mind Jerusalem.”
