New International Version
55 The Lord will destroy Babylon;
he will silence(A) her noisy din.
Waves(B) of enemies will rage like great waters;
the roar of their voices will resound.
56 A destroyer(C) will come against Babylon;
her warriors will be captured,
and their bows will be broken.(D)
For the Lord is a God of retribution;
he will repay(E) in full.
57 I will make her officials(F) and wise(G) men drunk,(H)
her governors, officers and warriors as well;
they will sleep(I) forever and not awake,”
declares the King,(J) whose name is the Lord Almighty.
