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

She who bore you shall be ashamed.
Behold, the least of the nations shall be a (A)wilderness,
A dry land and a desert.
13 Because of the wrath of the Lord
She shall not be inhabited,
(B)But she shall be wholly desolate.
(C)Everyone who goes by Babylon shall be horrified
And hiss at all her plagues.
14 “Put(D) yourselves in array against Babylon all around,
All you who bend the bow;
Shoot at her, spare no arrows,
For she has sinned against the Lord.
