Jeremiah 50:16-18 Common English Bible (CEB)

16 Cut Babylon off from those who plant
    and those who harvest the crops,
        because of its ruthless sword.[a]
Now return, all of you, to your people;
    flee to your homeland!

17 Israelites are scattered sheep,
    driven away by lions.
First the king of Assyria devoured them,
    and now Babylon’s King Nebuchadnezzar has ravaged them.[b]

18 Therefore, the Lord of heavenly forces, the God of Israel, proclaims:

I’m going to punish the king of Babylon and his land,
    just as I punished the king of Assyria.
