Isaiah 13


13:1 The burden of Babylon, which Isaiah the son of Amoz saw.
13:2 Lift ye up a banner upon the high mountain, exalt the voice
 to them, shake the hand, that they may go into the gates of the
 nobles.
13:3 I have commanded my sanctified ones, I have also called my
 mighty ones for my anger, [even] them that rejoice in my
 highness.
13:4 The noise of a multitude in the mountains, as of a great
 people; a tumultuous noise of the kingdoms of nations
 assembled: the LORD of hosts mustereth the host of the battle.
13:5 They come from a far country, from the end of heaven,
 [even] the LORD, and the weapons of his indignation, to destroy
 the whole land.
13:6 Howl ye; for the day of the LORD [is] at hand; it shall
 come as a destruction from the Almighty.
13:7 Therefore shall all hands be faint, and every man's heart
 shall melt:
13:8 And they shall be afraid: pangs and sorrows shall take hold
 of them; they shall be in pain as a woman that travaileth: they
 shall be amazed one at another; their faces [shall be as]
 flames.
13:9 Behold, the day of the LORD cometh, cruel both with wrath
 and fierce anger, to lay the land desolate: and he will destroy
 its sinners out of it.
13:10 For the stars of heaven and its constellations shall not
 give their light: the sun shall be darkened in his going forth,
 and the moon shall not cause her light to shine.
13:11 And I will punish the world for [their] evil, and the
 wicked for their iniquity; and I will cause the arrogance of
 the proud to cease, and will lay low the haughtiness of the
 terrible.
13:12 I will make a man more precious than fine gold; even a man
 than the golden wedge of Ophir.
13:13 Therefore I will shake the heavens, and the earth shall
 remove out of her place, in the wrath of the LORD of hosts, and
 in the day of his fierce anger.
13:14 And it shall be as the chased roe, and as a sheep that no
 man taketh up: they shall every man turn to his own people, and
 flee every one to his own land.
13:15 Every one that is found shall be thrust through; and every
 one that is joined [to them] shall fall by the sword.
13:16 Their children also shall be dashed to pieces before their
 eyes; their houses shall be plundered, and their wives
 ravished.
13:17 Behold, I will stir up the Medes against them, who shall
 not regard silver; and [as for] gold, they shall not delight in
 it.
13:18 [Their] bows also shall dash the young men to pieces; and
 they shall have no pity on the fruit of the womb; their eye
 shall not spare children.
13:19 And Babylon, the glory of kingdoms, the beauty of the
 Chaldees' excellence, shall be as when God overthrew Sodom and
 Gomorrah.
13:20 It shall never be inhabited, neither shall it be dwelt in
 from generation to generation: neither shall the Arabian pitch
 tent there; neither shall the shepherds make their fold there.
13:21 But wild beasts of the desert shall lie there; and their
 houses shall be full of doleful creatures; and owls shall dwell
 there, and satyrs shall dance there.
13:22 And the wild beasts of the isles shall cry in their
 desolate houses, and dragons in [their] pleasant palaces: and
 her time [is] near to come, and her days shall not be
 prolonged.
