10 The Lord has vindicated us.
    Come, let us announce in Jerusalem[a]
    everything the Lord our God has done.

11 Sharpen the arrows!
    Lift up the shields![b]
For the Lord has inspired the kings of the Medes
    to march against Babylon and destroy her.
This is his vengeance against those
    who desecrated his Temple.
12 Raise the battle flag against Babylon!
    Reinforce the guard and station the watchmen.
Prepare an ambush,
    for the Lord will fulfill all his plans against Babylon.
