Christian Standard Bible
The Conquest of Babylon
41 Look! A people comes from the north.(A)
A great nation and many kings will be stirred up
from the remote regions of the earth.(B)
42 They grasp bow and javelin.
They are cruel and show no mercy.
Their voice roars like the sea,(C)
and they ride on horses,
lined up like men in battle formation
against you, Daughter Babylon.
43 The king of Babylon has heard about them;
his hands have become weak.
Distress has seized him—
pain, like a woman in labor.(D)
