    “Fallen, fallen is Babylon;
and all the images of her gods
    he has shattered to the ground.”

    what I have heard from the Lord of hosts,
    the God of Israel, I announce to you.

11 The oracle concerning Dumah.
One is calling to me from Se′ir,
    “Watchman, what of the night?
    Watchman, what of the night?”
