As whirlwinds in the south pass through; so it comes from the desert, from a terrible land. 2A grievous vision is declared to me; the treacherous dealer deals treacherously, and the spoiler spoils. Go up, O Elam: besiege, O Media; all the sighing thereof have I made to cease. 3Therefore are my loins filled with pain: pangs have taken hold on me, as the pangs of a woman that travails: I was bowed down at the hearing of it; I was dismayed at the seeing of it. 4My heart panted, fearfulness affrighted me: the night of my pleasure has he turned into fear to me. 5Prepare the table, watch in the watchtower, eat, drink: arise, you princes, and anoint the shield. 6For thus has the LORD said to me, Go, set a watchman, let him declare what he sees. 7And he saw a chariot with a couple of horsemen, a chariot of asses, and a chariot of camels; and he listened diligently with much heed: 8And he cried, A lion: My lord, I stand continually on the watchtower in the daytime, and I am set in my ward whole nights: 9And, behold, here comes a chariot of men, with a couple of horsemen. And he answered and said, Babylon is fallen, is fallen; and all the graven images of her gods he has broken to the ground. 10O my threshing, and the corn of my floor: that which I have heard of the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel, have I declared to you.
