Translation Of The Thirteenth And Fourteenth Chapters Of
Isaiah, With Explanatory Notes
XIII. 1. Sentence against Babylon, which Isaiah, son of Amoz, saw.
2. On the mountain bare, lift up the banner!
Raise the voice to them [the Medes]!
Wave the hand;
That they may enter the gates of the tyrants.
3. I have given command to my consecrated ones,
Also I have summoned my mighty ones, to [execute] my
My proud exulters.
4. The voice of a multitude on the mountains,
As of a people great,
The voice of the tumult of kingdoms, nations gathered
Jehovah of hosts mustereth the armies for battle.
5. They come from a country afar,
From the end of the heavens,
Jehovah and the weapons of his indignation,
To destroy the whole land.
BSac 6:24 (Nov 1849) p. 766
6. Howl! for near is the day of Jehovah,
As a destruction from the Almighty it cometh.
7. Therefore all hands are faint,
And every heart of man melteth.
8. And they are confounded;
Throes and writhings take hold of them,
As a woman that travaileth, they are in pangs;
One at another looketh in amazement,
Faces of flames their faces.
9. Lo! the day of Jehovah cometh,
Terrible, with wrath, and the burning of anger,
To make the land a desolation,
And her sinners he shall destroy out of her.
10. For the stars of the heaven and their constellations
Shall not give their light,
Darkened the sun in his going forth,
And the moon shall not cause her light to shine.
11. And I will visit on the world its wickedness,
And on sinners their iniquity;
And I will cause to cease the arrogancy of the proud,
And the haughtiness of the violent, I will lay low;
12. Rarer will I make men than fine gold,
And men than the gold of Ophir.
