Jeremiah 50:41-43 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)
41 See, a people comes from the north,
a great nation, and mighty kings
rising from the ends of the earth.
42 Bow and javelin they wield,
cruel and pitiless are they;
They sound like the roaring sea,
as they ride forth on horses,
Each in place for battle
against you, daughter Babylon.
43 The king of Babylon hears news of them,
and his hands hang helpless;
Anguish takes hold of him,
like the pangs of a woman giving birth.
