New International Version
12 your mother will be greatly ashamed;
she who gave you birth will be disgraced.(A)
She will be the least of the nations—
a wilderness, a dry land, a desert.(B)
13 Because of the Lord’s anger she will not be inhabited
but will be completely desolate.(C)
All who pass Babylon will be appalled;(D)
they will scoff(E) because of all her wounds.(F)
King James Version
12 Your mother shall be sore confounded; she that bare you shall be ashamed: behold, the hindermost of the nations shall be a wilderness, a dry land, and a desert.
13 Because of the wrath of the Lord it shall not be inhabited, but it shall be wholly desolate: every one that goeth by Babylon shall be astonished, and hiss at all her plagues.
14 Put yourselves in array against Babylon round about: all ye that bend the bow, shoot at her, spare no arrows: for she hath sinned against the Lord.Read full chapter
