Holman Christian Standard Bible
29 The earth quakes(A) and trembles
because the Lord’s intentions against Babylon stand:
to make the land of Babylon an uninhabited desolation.
30 Babylon’s warriors have stopped fighting;(B)
they sit in their strongholds.
Their might is exhausted;
they have become like women.
Babylon’s homes have been set ablaze,
her gate bars are shattered.(C)
31 Messenger races to meet messenger,(D)
and herald to meet herald,
to announce to the king of Babylon
that his city has been captured
from end to end.
