“Declare among the nations,
Proclaim, and [a]set up a standard;
Proclaim—do not conceal it
Say, ‘Babylon is (A)taken, (B)Bel is shamed.
[b]Merodach is broken in pieces;
(C)Her idols are humiliated,
Her images are broken in pieces.’
(D)For out of the north (E)a nation comes up against her,
Which shall make her land desolate,
And no one shall dwell therein.
They shall [c]move, they shall depart,
Both man and beast.

“In those days and in that time,” says the Lord,
“The children of Israel shall come,
(F)They and the children of Judah together;
(G)With continual weeping they shall come,
(H)And seek the Lord their God.
They shall ask the way to Zion,
With their faces toward it, saying,
‘Come and let us join ourselves to the Lord
In (I)a perpetual covenant
That will not be forgotten.’
