Jeremiah 50:16-18 Living Bible (TLB)
16 Let the farmhands all depart. Let them rush back to their own lands as the enemies advance.
17 The Israelites are like sheep the lions chase. First the king of Assyria ate them up; then Nebuchadnezzar, the king of Babylon, crunched their bones. 18 Therefore the Lord, the God of Israel, says: Now I will punish the king of Babylon and his land as I punished the king of Assyria.
