Isaiah 13 (WEBP)

[1] The burden of Babylon, which Isaiah the son of Amoz saw.
[2] Set up a banner on the bare mountain! Lift up your voice to them! Wave your hand, that they may go into the gates of the nobles.
[3] I have commanded my consecrated ones; yes, I have called my mighty men for my anger, even my proudly exulting ones.
[4] The noise of a multitude is in the mountains, as of a great people; the noise of an uproar of the kingdoms of the nations gathered together! Yahweh of Armies is mustering the army for the battle.
[5] They come from a far country, from the uttermost part of heaven, even Yahweh, and the weapons of his indignation, to destroy the whole land.
[6] Wail, for Yahweh’s day is at hand! It will come as destruction from the Almighty.
[7] Therefore all hands will be feeble, and everyone’s heart will melt.
[8] They will be dismayed. Pangs and sorrows will seize them. They will be in pain like a woman in labor. They will look in amazement one at another. Their faces will be faces of flame.
[9] Behold, the day of Yahweh comes, cruel, with wrath and fierce anger; to make the land a desolation, and to destroy its sinners out of it.
[10] For the stars of the sky and its constellations will not give their light. The sun will be darkened in its going out, and the moon will not cause its light to shine.
[11] I will punish the world for their evil, and the wicked for their iniquity. I will cause the arrogance of the proud to cease, and will humble the arrogance of the terrible.
[12] I will make people more rare than fine gold, even a person than the pure gold of Ophir.
[13] Therefore I will make the heavens tremble, and the earth will be shaken out of its place in Yahweh of Armies’ wrath, and in the day of his fierce anger.
[14] It will happen that like a hunted gazelle and like sheep that no one gathers, they will each turn to their own people, and will each flee to their own land.
[15] Everyone who is found will be thrust through. Everyone who is captured will fall by the sword.
[16] Their infants also will be dashed in pieces before their eyes. Their houses will be ransacked, and their wives raped.
[17] Behold, I will stir up the Medes against them, who will not value silver, and as for gold, they will not delight in it.
[18] Their bows will dash the young men in pieces; and they shall have no pity on the fruit of the womb. Their eyes will not spare children.
[19] Babylon, the glory of kingdoms, the beauty of the Chaldeans’ pride, will be like when God overthrew Sodom and Gomorrah.
[20] It will never be inhabited, neither will it be lived in from generation to generation. The Arabian will not pitch a tent there, neither will shepherds make their flocks lie down there.
[21] But wild animals of the desert will lie there, and their houses will be full of jackals. Ostriches will dwell there, and wild goats will frolic there.
[22] Hyenas will cry in their fortresses, and jackals in the pleasant palaces. Her time is near to come, and her days will not be prolonged.

Young’s Literal Translation

Isaiah 13 (YLT)

[1] The burden of Babylon that Isaiah son of Amoz hath seen:
[2] ‘On a high mountain lift ye up an ensign, Raise the voice to them, wave the hand, And they go in to the openings of nobles.
[3] I have given charge to My sanctified ones, Also I have called My mighty ones for Mine anger, Those rejoicing at Mine excellency.’
[4] A voice of a multitude in the mountains, A likeness of a numerous people, A voice of noise from the kingdoms of nations who are gathered, Jehovah of Hosts inspecting a host of battle!
[5] They are coming in from a land afar off, From the end of the heavens, Jehovah and the instruments of His indignation, To destroy all the land.
[6] Howl ye, for near is the day of Jehovah, As destruction from the Mighty it cometh.
[7] Therefore, all hands do fail, And every heart of man doth melt.
[8] And they have been troubled, Pains and pangs they take, As a travailing woman they are pained, A man at his friend they marvel, The appearance of flames-their faces!
[9] Lo, the day of Jehovah doth come, Fierce, with wrath, and heat of anger, To make the land become a desolation, Yea, its sinning ones He destroyeth from it.
[10] For the stars of the heavens, and their constellations, Cause not their light to shine, Darkened hath been the sun in its going out, And the moon causeth not its light to come forth.
[11] And I have appointed on the world evil, And on the wicked their iniquity, And have caused to cease the excellency of the proud, And the excellency of the terrible I make low.
[12] I make man more rare than fine gold, And a common man than pure gold of Ophir.
[13] Therefore the heavens I cause to tremble, And the earth doth shake from its place, In the wrath of Jehovah of Hosts, And in a day of the heat of his anger.
[14] And it hath been, as a roe driven away, And as a flock that hath no gatherer, Each unto his people-they turn, And each unto his land-they flee.
[15] Every one who is found is thrust through, And every one who is added falleth by sword.
[16] And their sucklings are dashed to pieces before their eyes, Spoiled are their houses, and their wives lain with.
[17] Lo, I am stirring up against them the Medes, Who silver esteem not, And gold-they delight not in it.
[18] And bows dash young men to pieces, And the fruit of the womb they pity not, On sons their eye hath no pity.
[19] And Babylon, the beauty of kingdoms, The glory, the excellency of the Chaldeans, Hath been as overthrown by God, With Sodom and with Gomorrah.
[20] She doth not sit for ever, Nor continueth unto many generations, Nor doth Arab pitch tent there, And shepherds lie not down there.
[21] And Ziim have lain down there, And full have been their houses of howlings, And dwelt there have daughters of an ostrich, And goats do skip there.
[22] And Aiim have responded in his forsaken habitations, And dragons in palaces of delight, And near to come is her time, And her days are not drawn out!
