Jeremiah 50:16-18 New International Reader's Version (NIRV)

16 Do not leave anyone in Babylon to plant the fields.
    Do not leave anyone to harvest the grain.
Let each of them return to their own people.
    Let them run away to their own land.
    If they don’t, their enemy’s sword will bring them great harm.

17 “Israel is like a scattered flock
    that lions have chased away.
The first lion that ate them up
    was the king of Assyria.
The last one that broke their bones
    was Nebuchadnezzar, the king of Babylon.”

18 The Lord who rules over all is the God of Israel. He says,

“I punished the king of Assyria.
    In the same way, I will punish
    the king of Babylon and his land.
