Then say, ‘In the same way Babylon will sink and will not rise again because of the ·terrible [disastrous; evil] things I will make happen here. Her people will fall.’” ·The words of Jeremiah end here [Thus far are the words of Jeremiah].
“When you’ve finished reading the page, tie a stone to it, throw it into the River Euphrates, and watch it sink. Then say, ‘That’s how Babylon will sink to the bottom and stay there after the disaster I’m going to bring upon her.’”
Then say, ‘In the same way, Babylon will sink down. It will never rise again. That is because I will bring such horrible trouble on it. And its people will fall along with it.’ ” The words of Jeremiah end here.
Then say loud enough for others to hear, “Just as this stone and scroll sink, so will Babylon and her people sink, never to rise again, for they shall be tired after the disaster I, the Lord, am bringing to her.” The messages of Jeremiah end here.
and thou shalt say, So Babylon shall be drowned, and it shall not rise from the face of torment, which I (shall) bring [up]on it, and it shall be destroyed. Hitherto be the words of Jeremy (Heretofore be the words of Jeremiah).
