Bible: Jeremiah 25:8-12

25:8Therefore, the Lord who rules over all 1  says, ‘You have not listened to what I said. 2  25:9 So I, the Lord, affirm that 3  I will send for all the peoples of the north 4  and my servant, 5  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 6  this land, its inhabitants, and all the nations that surround it 7  and make them everlasting ruins. 8  I will make them objects of horror and hissing scorn. 9  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. 10  I will put an end to the sound of people grinding meal. I will put an end to lamps shining in their houses. 11  25:11 This whole area 12  will become a desolate wasteland. These nations will be subject to the king of Babylon for seventy years.’ 13 

25:12‘But when the seventy years are over, I will punish the king of Babylon and his nation 14  for their sins. I will make the land of Babylon 15  an everlasting ruin. 16  I, the Lord, affirm it! 17
