55 The Lord will destroy Babylon.
    He will make the loud sounds of the city become silent.
Enemies will come roaring in like ocean waves.
    People all around will hear that roar.
56 The army will come and destroy Babylon.
    Babylon’s soldiers will be taken captive.
    Their bows will be broken.
This is because the Lord is a God who punishes people for the evil they do.
    He gives them the full punishment they deserve.
57 I will make Babylon’s rulers and wise men drunk.
    I will make her governors, officers and soldiers drunk, too.
Then they will sleep forever and never wake up,” says the King.
    His name is the Lord of heaven’s armies.
