Bible: Jer 25:9-14

25:9 So I, the Lord, affirm that 1  I will send for all the peoples of the north 2  and my servant, 3  King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon. I will bring them against this land and its inhabitants and all the nations that surround it. I will utterly destroy 4  this land, its inhabitants, and all the nations that surround it 5  and make them everlasting ruins. 6  I will make them objects of horror and hissing scorn. 7  25:10 I will put an end to the sounds of joy and gladness, to the glad celebration of brides and grooms in these lands. 8  I will put an end to the sound of people grinding meal. I will put an end to lamps shining in their houses. 9  25:11 This whole area 10  will become a desolate wasteland. These nations will be subject to the king of Babylon for seventy years.’ 11 

25:12‘But when the seventy years are over, I will punish the king of Babylon and his nation 12  for their sins. I will make the land of Babylon 13  an everlasting ruin. 14  I, the Lord, affirm it! 15  25:13 I will bring on that land everything that I said I would. I will bring on it everything that is written in this book. I will bring on it everything that Jeremiah has prophesied against all the nations. 16  25:14 For many nations and great kings will make slaves of the king of Babylon and his nation 17  too. I will repay them for all they have done!’ 18
