Bible: Isaiah 14:21-26

14:21 Prepare to execute 1  his sons

for the sins their ancestors have committed. 2 

They must not rise up and take possession of the earth,

or fill the surface of the world with cities.” 3 

14:22I will rise up against them,”

says the Lord who commands armies.

I will blot out all remembrance of Babylon and destroy all her people, 4 

including the offspring she produces,” 5 

says the Lord.

14:23I will turn her into a place that is overrun with wild animals 6 

and covered with pools of stagnant water.

I will get rid of her, just as one sweeps away dirt with a broom,” 7 

says the Lord who commands armies.

14:24 8 

The Lord who commands armies makes this solemn vow:

“Be sure of this:

Just as I have intended, so it will be;

just as I have planned, it will happen.

14:25 I will break Assyria 9  in my land,

I will trample them 10  underfoot on my hills.

Their yoke will be removed from my people,

the burden will be lifted from their shoulders. 11 

14:26 This is the plan I have devised for the whole earth;

my hand is ready to strike all the nations.” 12
