The Vision of the Wilderness
The vision of the wilderness. As a blast [2
a wilderness 1
might go], from out of the
wilderness coming from land;
so a fearful [3
hard] was announced to me; the one disregarding disregards; the one acting lawlessly acts lawlessly. [3are
Elamites], and the ambassadors of the Persians [2
come]. Now I shall moan and shall comfort myself.
Because of this [2
was filled 1
my loin] with feebleness, and pangs took me as the one giving birth. I transgressed to not hear, I hurried to not see.
My heart wanders, and lawlessness immerses me; my soul attends to fear.
Prepare the table! Eat! Drink! Rising up are the rulers. Pull up shields!
For thus said the LORD
to me, Proceeding, [2
stand] as watchman, and whatever you should behold announce!
And I saw riders -- [2
two], a rider of a donkey, and a rider of a camel. Listen [2
And call Uriah to the watchtower of the LORD
! And he said, I stood always by day, and over the camp I stood all the night.
Babylon is Fallen
And behold, he comes -- a rider of a double chariot; and responding he said, Has fallen, has fallen, Babylon and all her statues; and her handmade idols
were broken unto the ground.
Hear! O ones being left behind, and, O ones grieving. Hear what I heard from the LORD
of Hosts! what
the God of Israel announced to you.
The Vision of Edom
The vision of Edom. [2
He called] from Seir. Guard the
I guard in the morning, and the night; if you should seek, seek; and [2
In the forest by evening you shall bed down in the way of Dedan;
for meeting with the
one thirsting [2
bring]! O ones dwelling in the
place of Tema. [2
with bread loaves 1
Meet] the ones fleeing!
because of the multitude of the ones being slain, and because of the multitude of the ones wandering, and because of the multitude of the swords, and because of the multitude of the bows of the ones being extended, and because of the multitude of the ones fallen in the battle.
For thus [2
to me 1the LORD
], Yet a year, as the
year of a hireling, [4
shall fail 1
And the remnant of the [2
strong] of the
sons of Kedar will be few. For the LORD
God of Israel spoke.
