Isaiah 21

Isa 21:1 The burden of the desert of the sea: As tempests in the Negeb pass, it comes from the desert from a terrifying land.
Isa 21:2 A harsh vision is revealed to me; the one betraying betrays, and the one ravaging ravages. Go up, O Elam! Besiege, O Media! I have caused all her sighing to cease.
Isa 21:3 Because of this my loins are filled with pain; pangs have taken hold on me like the pangs of a travailing woman. I am bowed from hearing; I am troubled from seeing.
Isa 21:4 My heart wanders; terror overwhelms me; He has made the twilight of my desire into a fear.
Isa 21:5 Arrange the table; watch in the watchtower; eat, drink; rise up, rulers, and anoint the shield.
Isa 21:6 For so the Lord has said to me: Go, set a watchman; he will declare what he sees.
Isa 21:7 And he sees a chariot, a couple of horsemen; a chariot of an ass; a chariot of a camel; and let him bow attentively, very attentively.
Isa 21:8 And he cried, A lion! My lord, I always stand on my watchtower by day; and I am stationed at my post all the nights.
Isa 21:9 And, behold, here comes a chariot of a man, a pair of horses. And he answered and said, Babylon has fallen, has fallen! And He has smashed the graven images of her gods to the earth.
Isa 21:10 Oh my threshing, and the grain of my floor! That which I have heard of Jehovah of Hosts, the God of Israel, I have told to you.
Isa 21:11 The burden of Dumah: He calls to me out of Seir, Watchman, what of the night? Watchman, what of the night?
Isa 21:12 The watchman says, The morning comes, and also night. If you would inquire, inquire. Come! Return!
Isa 21:13 The burden of Arabia: You shall stay in the forest of Arabia, travelers of Dedanites.
Isa 21:14 The people of the land of Tema bring water to him who is thirsty; they went to meet the fugitive with his bread.
Isa 21:15 For they fled from before swords, from the drawn sword, and from the bent bow, and from the press of battle.
Isa 21:16 For so the Lord has said to me, Within a year, as the years of a hireling, all the glory of Kedar shall be ended,
Isa 21:17 and the rest of the number of the archers, the warriors of the sons of Kedar, shall be few. For Jehovah God of Israel has spoken.

On this day...
