Isaiah 21

 south pass through; [so] it cometh from the desert, from a
 terrible land.
21:2 A grievous vision is declared to me; the treacherous dealer
 dealeth treacherously, and the spoiler plundereth. Go up, O
 Elam: besiege, O Media; all her sighing have I made to cease.
21:3 Therefore are my loins filled with pain: pangs have taken
 hold upon me, as the pangs of a woman that travaileth: I was
 bowed down at the hearing [of it]; I was dismayed at the seeing
 [of it].
21:4 My heart panted, fearfulness affrighted me: the night of my
 pleasure hath he turned into fear to me.
21:5 Prepare the table, watch in the watch-tower, eat, drink:
 arise, ye princes, [and] anoint the shield.
21:6 For thus hath the LORD said to me, Go, set a watchman, let
 him declare what he seeth.
21:7 And he saw a chariot [with] a couple of horsemen, a chariot
 of asses, [and] a chariot of camels; and he hearkened
 diligently with much heed:
21:8 And he cried, a lion: My lord, I stand continually upon the
 watch-tower in the day time, and I am set in my ward whole
21:9 And behold, here cometh 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 hath broken to
 the ground.
21:10 O my threshing, and the corn of my floor; that which I
 have heard from the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel, have I
 declared to you.
21:11 The burden of Dumah. He calleth to me out of Seir,
 Watchman, what of the night? Watchman, what of the night?
21:12 The watchman said, The morning cometh, and also the night:
 if ye will inquire, inquire ye: return, come.
21:13 The burden upon Arabia. In the forest in Arabia shall ye
 lodge, O ye traveling companies of Dedanim.
21:14 The inhabitants of the land of Tema brought water to him
 that was thirsty, they met with their bread him that fled.
21:15 For they fled from the swords, from the drawn sword, and
 from the bent bow, and from the grievousness of war.
21:16 For thus hath the LORD said to me, Within a year,
 according to the years of a hireling, and all the glory of
 Kedar shall fail:
21:17 And the residue of the number of archers, the mighty men
 of the children of Kedar, shall be diminished: for the LORD God
 of Israel hath spoken [it].
