10 Yahweh has brought forth our vindication.
    Come and let us make known in Zion the work of Yahweh our God.
11 Sharpen the arrows, fill the quivers!
    Yahweh has stirred up the spirit of the kings of the Medes.
Because his plan concerning Babylon is to destroy it,
    for that is the vengeance of Yahweh,
    the vengeance for his temple.
12 Against the walls of Babylon raise a banner;
    post a strong watch,[a] post watchmen, prepare the ambushes,
for Yahweh has both planned as well as performed
    what he has spoken concerning the inhabitants of Babylon.
