55 The Lord is destroying Babylon
    and silencing her outcry,
        whose roar is like the crushing waves,
        a deafening crash.
56 He certainly comes against her;
    the destroyer comes against Babylon.
Her warriors are captured;
    their bows are broken.
The Lord is an exacting God
    who repays in full.
57 I’ll make her leaders and sages drunk,
    her governors, officials, and warriors as well.
They will sleep forever, never to get up,
    declares the king,
        whose name is the Lord of heavenly forces.
