Jeremiah 51:59-64New American Standard Bible (NASB)
59 The [a]message which Jeremiah the prophet commanded Seraiah the son of Neriah, the grandson of Mahseiah, when he went with Zedekiah the king of Judah to Babylon in the fourth year of his reign. (Now Seraiah was quartermaster.)60 So Jeremiah wrote in a single [b]scroll all the calamity which would come upon Babylon, that is, all these words which have been written concerning Babylon.61 Then Jeremiah said to Seraiah, “As soon as you come to Babylon, then see that you read all these words aloud,62 and say, ‘You, O Lord, have [c]promised concerning this place to cut it off, so that there will be nothing dwelling in it, [d]whether man or beast, but it will be a perpetual desolation.’63 And as soon as you finish reading this [e]scroll, you will tie a stone to it and throw it into the middle of the Euphrates,64 and say, ‘Just so shall Babylon sink down and not rise again because of the calamity that I am going to bring upon her; and they will become exhausted.’” Thus far are the words of Jeremiah.
