13 aBecause of the wrath of the Lord she shall not be inhabited
but shall be an utter desolation;
beveryone who passes by Babylon shall be appalled,
band hiss because of all her wounds.
23 zHow the hammer of the whole earth
is cut down and broken!
aHow Babylon bhas become
a horror among the nations!
29 nThe land trembles and writhes in pain,
ofor the Lord's purposes against Babylon stand,
to make the land of Babylon a desolation,
