NASB — Isaiah 13 — KJV

Prophecies about Babylon

1 The Iaoracle concerning bBabylon which cIsaiah the son of Amoz saw.
  2 aLift up a standard on the Ibbare hill,
  Raise your voice to them,
  cWave the hand that they may denter the doors of the nobles.
  3 I have commanded My consecrated ones,
  I have even called My amighty warriors,
  My proudly exulting ones,
  To [execute] My anger.
  4 A asound of tumult on the mountains,
  Like that of many people!
  A sound of the uproar of kingdoms,
  Of nations gathered together!
  The LORD of hosts is mustering the army for battle.
  5 They are coming from a far country,
  From the Iafarthest horizons,
  The LORD and His instruments of bindignation,
  To cdestroy the whole land.

Judgment on the Day of the LORD

  6 Wail, for the aday of the LORD is near!
  It will come as bdestruction from Ithe Almighty.
  7 Therefore aall hands will fall limp,
  And every man’s bheart will melt.
  8 They will be aterrified,
  Pains and anguish will take hold of [them];
  They will bwrithe like a woman in labor,
  They will look at one another in astonishment,
  Their faces aflame.
  9 Behold, athe day of the LORD is coming,
  Cruel, with fury and burning anger,
  To make the land a desolation;
  And He will exterminate its sinners from it.
  10 For the astars of heaven and their constellations
  Will not flash forth their light;
  The bsun will be dark when it rises
  And the moon will not shed its light.
  11 Thus I will apunish the world for its evil
  And the bwicked for their iniquity;
  I will also put an end to the carrogance of the proud
  And abase the dhaughtiness of the Ieruthless.
  12 I will make mortal man Iascarcer than pure gold
  And mankind than the bgold of Ophir.
  13 Therefore I will make the aheavens tremble,
  And bthe earth will be shaken from its place
  At the fury of the LORD of hosts
  In cthe day of His burning anger.
  14 And it will be that like a hunted gazelle,
  Or like asheep with none to gather [them],
  They will each turn to his own people,
  And each one flee to his own land.
  15 Anyone who is found will be athrust through,
  And anyone who is captured will fall by the sword.
  16 Their alittle ones also will be dashed to pieces
  Before their eyes;
  Their houses will be plundered
  And their wives ravished.

Babylon Will Fall to the Medes

  17 ¶ Behold, I am going to astir up the Medes against them,
  Who will not value silver or btake pleasure in gold.
  18 And [their] bows will Imow down the ayoung men,
  They will not even have compassion on the fruit of the womb,
  [Nor] will their beye pity IIchildren.
  19 And aBabylon, the bbeauty of kingdoms, the glory of the Chaldeans’ pride,
  Will be as when God coverthrew Sodom and Gomorrah.
  20 It will anever be inhabited or lived in from generation to generation;
  Nor will the bArab pitch [his] tent there,
  Nor will shepherds make [their flocks] lie down there.
  21 But adesert creatures will lie down there,
  And their houses will be full of Iowls;
  Ostriches also will live there, and IIshaggy goats will frolic there.
  22 IHyenas will howl in their fortified towers
  And jackals in their luxurious apalaces.
  Her [fateful] time also IIwill soon come
  And her days will not be prolonged.

God mustereth the armies of his wrath.

1 ¶ The burden of Babylon, which Isaiah the son of Amoz did see. 2 Lift ye up a banner upon the high mountain, exalt the voice unto them, shake the hand, that they may go into the gates of the nobles. 3 I have commanded my sanctified ones, I have also called my mighty ones for mine anger, [even] them that rejoice in my highness. 4 The noise of a multitude in the mountains, like as of a great people; a tumultuous noise of the kingdoms of nations gathered together: the LORD of hosts mustereth the host of the battle. 5 They come from a far country, from the end of heaven, [even] the LORD, and the weapons of his indignation, to destroy the whole land.

He threateneth to destroy Babylon by the Medes.

6 ¶ Howl ye; for the day of the LORD [is] at hand; it shall come as a destruction from the Almighty. 7 Therefore shall all hands be faint, and every man's heart shall melt: 8 And they shall be afraid: pangs and sorrows shall take hold of them; they shall be in pain as a woman that travaileth: they shall be amazed one at another; their faces [shall be as] flames. 9 Behold, the day of the LORD cometh, cruel both with wrath and fierce anger, to lay the land desolate: and he shall destroy the sinners thereof out of it. 10 For the stars of heaven and the constellations thereof shall not give their light: the sun shall be darkened in his going forth, and the moon shall not cause her light to shine. 11 And I will punish the world for [their] evil, and the wicked for their iniquity; and I will cause the arrogancy of the proud to cease, and will lay low the haughtiness of the terrible. 12 I will make a man more precious than fine gold; even a man than the golden wedge of Ophir. 13 Therefore I will shake the heavens, and the earth shall remove out of her place, in the wrath of the LORD of hosts, and in the day of his fierce anger. 14 And it shall be as the chased roe, and as a sheep that no man taketh up: they shall every man turn to his own people, and flee every one into his own land. 15 Every one that is found shall be thrust through; and every one that is joined [unto them] shall fall by the sword. 16 Their children also shall be dashed to pieces before their eyes; their houses shall be spoiled, and their wives ravished. 17 Behold, I will stir up the Medes against them, which shall not regard silver; and [as for] gold, they shall not delight in it. 18 [Their] bows also shall dash the young men to pieces; and they shall have no pity on the fruit of the womb; their eye shall not spare children.

The desolation of Babylon.

19 ¶ And Babylon, the glory of kingdoms, the beauty of the Chaldees' excellency, shall be as when God overthrew Sodom and Gomorrah. 20 It shall never be inhabited, neither shall it be dwelt in from generation to generation: neither shall the Arabian pitch tent there; neither shall the shepherds make their fold there. 21 But wild beasts of the desert shall lie there; and their houses shall be full of doleful creatures; and owls shall dwell there, and satyrs shall dance there. 22 And the wild beasts of the islands shall cry in their desolate houses, and dragons in [their] pleasant palaces: and her time [is] near to come, and her days shall not be prolonged.
