Jeremiah 50:43-45 Easy-to-Read Version (ERV)

43 The king of Babylon heard about those armies,
    and he is paralyzed with fear.
He is overcome with fear and pain,
    like a woman giving birth.

44 “Sometimes a lion will come
    from the thick bushes near the Jordan River.
It will walk into the fields
    where people have their animals.
I will be like that lion;
    I will chase Babylon from its land.
Who should I choose to do this?
    There is no one like me.
    There is no one who can challenge me.
No shepherd will come to chase me away.
    I will chase away the Babylonians.”

45 Listen to what the Lord has planned
    to do to Babylon.
Listen to what he has decided
    to do to the Babylonians.
“I promise that an enemy will drag away the young kids of Babylon’s flock,
    and Babylon will become an empty pasture.
