10 The Lord hath brought forth our [a]righteousness: come and let us declare in Zion the work of the Lord our God.

11 Make bright the arrows: [b]gather the shields: the Lord hath raised up the spirit of the King of the Medes: for his purpose is against Babel to destroy it, because it is the [c]vengeance of the Lord, and the vengeance of his Temple.

12 Set up the standard upon the walls of Babel, make the watch strong: set up the watchmen: prepare the scouts: for the Lord hath both devised, and done that which he spake against the inhabitants of Babel.
