Jeremiah 50:16-18 International Standard Version (ISV)

16 Eliminate from Babylon the one who plants seeds
    and the one who uses the sickle at harvest time.
Because of the oppressor’s sword, let each one turn
    toward his own people and flee to his own land.”

Hope for Israel

17 “Israel is a scattered flock, driven out by lions. The first to devour him was the king of Assyria, and then afterward[a] King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon gnawed[b] his bones. 18 Therefore this is what the Lord of the Heavenly Armies, the God of Israel, says: ‘Look, I’m about to judge the king of Babylon and his land, just as I’ve judged the king of Assyria.
