Holman Christian Standard Bible
54 The sound of a cry from Babylon!(A)
The sound of great destruction
from the land of the Chaldeans!
55 For the Lord is going to devastate Babylon;
He will silence her mighty voice.
Their waves roar like abundant waters;
the tumult of their voice resounds,
56 for a destroyer is coming against her,
Her warriors will be captured,
their bows shattered,
for the Lord is a God of retribution;
He will certainly repay.
