12 Lift up a banner against the walls of Babylon!
    Bring more guards.
Put the watchmen in their places.
    Get ready for a secret attack!
The Lord will do what he has planned.
    He will do what he said he would do against the people of Babylon.
13 People of Babylon, you live near much water.
    You are rich with treasures.
But your end as a nation has come.
    It is time for you to be destroyed.
14 The Lord of heaven’s armies has promised in his own name:
    ‘Babylon, I will surely fill you with so many enemy soldiers they will be like a swarm of locusts.
    They will stand over you and shout their victory.’
