Judgment on Kedar and Hazor

28 Concerning (A)Kedar and the kingdoms of Hazor that Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon struck down.

Thus says the Lord:
(B)“Rise up, advance against (C)Kedar!
    Destroy (D)the people of the east!
29 (E)Their tents and their flocks shall be taken,
    their (F)curtains and all their goods;
their camels shall be led away from them,
    and men shall cry to them: (G)‘Terror on every side!’
30 (H)Flee, wander far away, dwell in the depths,
    O inhabitants of Hazor!
declares the Lord.
For Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon
    has made a plan against you
    and formed a purpose against you.

31 (I)“Rise up, advance against a nation (J)at ease,
    (K)that dwells securely,
declares the Lord,
(L)that has no gates or bars,
    that dwells alone.
32 (M)Their camels shall become plunder,
    their herds of livestock a spoil.
(N)I will scatter to every wind
    (O)those who cut the corners of their hair,
and I will bring their calamity
    from every side of them,
declares the Lord.
33 Hazor shall become (P)a haunt of jackals,
    an everlasting waste;
(Q)no man shall dwell there;
    (R)no man shall sojourn in her.”
