54 The (A)sound of an outcry from Babylon,
And of great destruction from the land of the Chaldeans!
55 For the Lord is going to destroy Babylon,
And He will make her loud [a]noise vanish from her.
And their (B)waves will roar like many waters;
The clamor of their voices [b]sounds forth.
56 For the (C)destroyer is coming against her, against Babylon,
And her warriors will be captured,
Their (D)bows shattered;
For the Lord is a God of (E)retribution,
He will fully repay.
