Isaiah 21:1-3 The Passion Translation (TPT)
A Prophecy concerning Babylon
21 Here is a prophecy concerning Babylon, the Desert by the Sea:
As whirlwinds rushing in from the southland,
an invader comes in from the desert, from a land to be feared.
2 A terrifying revelation has been given to me:
The betrayer betrays; the destroyer destroys.
Arise, you Elamites! Lay siege you Medes!
I will put an end
to all the grief she brought to the nations.
3 There’s a churning deep inside me,
like labor pains of a woman about to give birth.
I’m too anguished by what I hear
and too frightened by what I see.
