Isaiah 21:1-3 Easy-to-Read Version (ERV)

God’s Message About Babylon

21 This is a message[a] about the “desert by the sea”[b]:

It is coming like a storm blowing through the Negev.
    It is coming in from the desert, from a frightening nation.
I was given a vision of the hard times to come.
    I see traitors turning against you.
    I see people taking your wealth.

Elam, go against them!
    Media, surround the city!
    I will put an end to all their moaning.

I saw those terrible things, and now I am afraid.
    My fear makes my stomach hurt like the pain of giving birth.
What I hear frightens me.
    What I see makes me shake with fear.
