Jeremiah 51:12-14 Common English Bible (CEB)
12 Set up a flag on the walls of Babylon,
fortify the guards,
prepare an ambush,
because the Lord has a plan
against the inhabitants of Babylon.
He will accomplish it,
just as he said he would.
13 You live beside a great river,
and you are rich in treasures.
But your time has come;
your cruelty has caught up with you.
14 The Lord of heavenly forces has sworn by his own name:
I’m going to fill your cities
with soldiers like a swarm of locusts;
they will celebrate their victory over you.
