55 For the Lord is laying Babylon waste,
    and stilling her mighty voice.
Their waves roar like many waters,
    the noise of their voice is raised;

    upon Babylon;
her warriors are taken,
    their bows are broken in pieces;

    her governors, her commanders, and her warriors;
they shall sleep a perpetual sleep and not wake,
    says the King, whose name is the Lord of hosts.
