CHAP. 1 THE ORACLE CONCERNING THE DESERT OF THE SEA. XXI.
LIKE the southern tempests violently rushing along, From the desert he cometh, from the terrible country. 2 A dreadful vision! it is revealed unto me : The plunderer is plundered, and the destroyer is destroyed!
Go up, O Elam; form the siege, O Media !
I have put an end to all her vexations : 3 Therefore are my loins filled with pain; Anguish hath seized me, as the anguish of a woman in
travail. I am convulsed, so that I cannot hear; I am astonished,
so that I cannot see: 4 My heart is bewildered; terrors have scared me: The evening, for which I longed, hath he turned into
horror. 5 The table is prepared, the watch is set; they eat, they
drink : Rise, O ye princes ; anoint the shield; 6 For thus hath the Lord said unto me:
Go, set a watchman on his station;
Whatever he shall see, let him report unto thee. 9 And he saw a chariot with two riders;
A rider on an ass, a rider on a camel :
And he observed diligently with extreme diligence. 8 And he that looked out on the watch cried aloud :
O my Lord, I keep my station all the day long ;
And on my ward have I continued every night. 9 And behold, here cometh a man, one of the two riders : And he answereth, and sayeth, Babylon is fallen, is
fallen; And all the graven idols of her gods are broken to the
ground. 10 O my threshing, and the corn of my floor! What I have heard from JEHOVAH God of Hosts, the
God of Israel,
A voice crieth unto me from Seir: Watchman, what from the night?
Watchman, what from the night ? 12 The watchman replieth:
The morning cometh, and also the night.

CHAP. ] THE ORACLE CONCERNING THE VALLEY OF VISION. XXII.
WHAT aileth thee now, that all thine inhabitants are
gone up to the house-tops?
A tumultuous city, a joyous city!
gone far away. 4 Wherefore I said: Turn away from me; I will weep
bitterly: Strive not to comfort me for the desolation of the daugh
ter of my people: 5 For it is a day of trouble, and of treading down, and of
perplexity; The day of the Lord JEHOVAH God of Hosts in the
valley of vision:
Breaking down the wall, and crying to the mountain. 6 And Elam beareth the quiver; - With chariots cometh the Syrian, and with horsemen;
And Kir uncovereth the shield. 7 And thy choicest valleys shall be filled with chariots ; And the horsemen shall set themselves in array against
the gate; 8 And the barrier of Judah shall be laid open; Then thou shalt look towards the arsenal of the house
of the forest. 9 And the breaches of the city of David, ye shall see that
they are many; And ye shall collect the waters of the lower pool; 10 And the houses of Jerusalem ye shall number; And ye shall break down the houses to fortify the ram
To receive the waters of the old pool.
And him, that formed it of old, ye regard not. 12 And the Lord JEHOVAH God of Hosts called in that
