43 The king of Babylon has heard reports about them, and he loses courage.
    Anguish will grip him as pain grips a woman in labor.
44 I will suddenly chase them from their places
    like a lion coming out of the jungle
        along the Jordan River into pastureland.
            I will appoint over Babylon whomever I choose.
                Who is like me? Who can challenge me?
                    Is there any leader who can stand up to me?
45 Listen to the plans that the Lord is making against Babylon
    and the things he intends to do to the land of the Babylonians.
        He will surely drag away the little ones of the flock.
        He will surely destroy the pasture because of the Babylonians.
