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.
