World English Bible
43 The king of Babylon has heard the news of them,
and his hands become feeble:
anguish has taken hold of him,
pains as of a woman in labor.
44 Behold, the enemy will come up like a lion
from the pride of the Jordan against the strong habitation;
for I will suddenly make them run away from it.
Whoever is chosen,
I will appoint him over it;
for who is like me?
Who will appoint me a time?
Who is the shepherd who can stand before me?”
45 Therefore hear the counsel of Yahweh,
that he has taken against Babylon;
and his purposes,
that he has purposed against the land of the Chaldeans:
Surely they will drag them away,
even the little ones of the flock.
Surely he will make their habitation desolate over them.
