International Standard Version
41 “Look, people are coming from the north.
A great nation and many kings will be stirred up
from the ends of the earth.
42 They grab bow and spear.
They’re cruel and show no mercy.
Their sound roars like the sea,
as they ride on horses
deployed like men ready for battle
against you, daughter of Babylon.
43 The king of Babylon has heard the news about them,
and his hands hang limp.
Distress has seized him,
like a woman in labor.
