New International Version
12 Lift up a banner(A) against the walls of Babylon!
Reinforce the guard,
station the watchmen,(B)
prepare an ambush!(C)
The Lord will carry out his purpose,(D)
his decree against the people of Babylon.
13 You who live by many waters(E)
and are rich in treasures,(F)
your end has come,
the time for you to be destroyed.(G)
14 The Lord Almighty has sworn by himself:(H)
I will surely fill you with troops, as with a swarm of locusts,(I)
and they will shout(J) in triumph over you.
