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
14:22 “I will rise up against them,”
“I will blot out all remembrance of Babylon and destroy all her people, 4
including the offspring she produces,” 5
14:23 “I 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
“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
