New International Version
30 Babylon’s warriors(A) have stopped fighting;
they remain in their strongholds.
Their strength is exhausted;
they have become weaklings.(B)
Her dwellings are set on fire;(C)
the bars(D) of her gates are broken.
31 One courier(E) follows another
and messenger follows messenger
to announce to the king of Babylon
that his entire city is captured,(F)
32 the river crossings seized,
the marshes set on fire,(G)
and the soldiers terrified.(H)”
