Jeremiah 50:16-18 Lexham English Bible (LEB)

16 Cut off the sower from Babylon,
    and the one who uses the sickle in the time of harvest.
Because of[a] the sword of the oppressor
    each one will turn to their people,
    and each one will flee to their land.
17 Israel is a sheep scattered,
    lions drove them away.
The first who devoured it was the king of Assyria,
    and now at the end Nebuchadnezzar, the king of Babylon, gnawed its bones.”

18 Therefore[b] thus says Yahweh of hosts, the God of Israel,

“Look, I am going to punish the king of Babylon and his land
    just as I punished the king of Assyria.
