A Message About Kedar and Hazor

28 Concerning Kedar(A) and the kingdoms of Hazor,(B) which Nebuchadnezzar(C) king of Babylon attacked:

This is what the Lord says:

“Arise, and attack Kedar
    and destroy the people of the East.(D)
29 Their tents and their flocks(E) will be taken;
    their shelters will be carried off
    with all their goods and camels.
People will shout to them,
    ‘Terror(F) on every side!’

30 “Flee quickly away!
    Stay in deep caves,(G) you who live in Hazor,(H)
declares the Lord.
“Nebuchadnezzar(I) king of Babylon has plotted against you;
    he has devised a plan against you.

31 “Arise and attack a nation at ease,
    which lives in confidence,”
declares the Lord,
“a nation that has neither gates nor bars;(J)
    its people live far from danger.
32 Their camels(K) will become plunder,
    and their large herds(L) will be spoils of war.
I will scatter to the winds(M) those who are in distant places[a](N)
    and will bring disaster on them from every side,”
declares the Lord.
33 “Hazor(O) will become a haunt of jackals,(P)
    a desolate(Q) place forever.
No one will live there;
    no people will dwell(R) in it.”
