HaShem commands medes to take Bavel

21:1 The burden of the desert of the sea. As whirlwinds in the south pass through; [so] it comes from the desert, from a terrible land.

21:2 A grievous vision is declared to me; the treacherous dealer dealeth treacherously, and the spoiler spoileth. Go up, O Elam: besiege, O Media; all the sighing thereof have I made to cease.

21:3 Therefore are my loins filled with pain: pangs have taken hold upon me, as the pangs of a woman that travaileth: I was bowed down at the hearing [of it]; I was dismayed at the seeing [of it].

21:4 My heart panted, fearfulness affrighted me: the night of my pleasure has he turned into fear to me.

21:5 Prepare the table, watch in the watchtower, eat, drink: arise, ye princes, [and] anoint the shield.

21:6 For thus has Adonai said to me:

"Go, set a watchman, let him declare what he seeth.

21:7 And he saw a chariot [with] a couple of horsemen, a chariot of asses, [and] a chariot of camels; and he hearkened diligently with much heed:

21:8 And he cried, A lion: Adoni (אדני), I stand continually upon the watchtower in the daytime, and I am set in my ward whole nights:

21:9 And, behold, here comes a chariot of men, [with] a couple of horsemen. And he answered and said, Bavel is fallen, is fallen; and all the graven images of her gods he has broken to the ground.

21:10 O my threshing, and the corn of my floor: that which I have heard of ADONAI (יהוה) Tzva'ot (צבא), the EL (אל) of Yisrael, have I declared to you.

21:11 The burden of Dumah. He calls to me out of Seir, Watchman, what of the night? Watchman, what of the night?

21:12 The watchman said, The morning comes, and also the night: if ye will enquire, enquire ye: return, come.

21:13 The burden upon Arabia. In the forest in Arabia shall ye lodge, O ye travelling companies of Dedanim.

21:14 The inhabitants of the land of Tema brought water to him that was thirsty, they prevented with their bread him that fled.

21:15 For they fled from the swords, from the drawn sword, and from the bent bow, and from the grievousness of war.

21:16 For thus has Adonai said to me, Within a year, according to the years of an hireling, and all the glory of Kedar shall fail:

21:17 And the residue of the number of archers, the mighty men of the Benai Kedar, shall be diminished: for ADONAI (יהוה) EL (אל) of Yisrael has spoken [it].
