Arrange your battle lines against Babylon on every side,
All you who bend the bow;
Shoot at her, do not be sparing with your arrows,
For she has sinned against Yahweh. 15
Raise a loud shout against her on every side!
She has given herself up, her pillars have fallen,
Her walls have been pulled down.
For this is the vengeance of Yahweh:
Take vengeance on her;
As she has done to others, so do to her. 16
Cut off the sower from Babylon
And the one who seizes the sickle at the time of harvest;
From before the sword of the oppressor
They will each turn back to his own people,
And they will each flee to his own land.
