Jeremiah 50:43-45 Common English Bible (CEB)

43 The king of Babylon has heard reports of them
    and is panic-stricken;
    distress overwhelms him,
        pain like that of a woman in labor.

44 Like a lion coming up from
        the jungle of the Jordan
    to a well-watered meadow,[a]
        so I will suddenly chase down Babylon
        and single out its choicest of rams.
Who is like me?
    Who can direct me?
    What shepherd can withstand me?
45 Therefore, listen to the counsel
    that the Lord has for Babylon
    and the plans he’s devised
        against the land of Babylon:
    The little ones of the flock
        will be dragged off,
        as their pasture watches
        in utter disbelief.[b]
