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.

King James w/Strong’s #s

Isaiah 13 (KJVS)

[1] The burden H4853 of Babylon H894, which Isaiah H3470 the son H1121 of Amoz H531 did see H2372 (8804).
[2] Lift ye up H5375 (8798) a banner H5251 upon the high H8192 (8737) mountain H2022, exalt H7311 (8685) the voice H6963 unto them, shake H5130 (8685) the hand H3027, that they may go H935 (8799) into the gates H6607 of the nobles H5081.
[3] I have commanded H6680 (8765) my sanctified ones H6942 (8794), I have also called H7121 (8804) my mighty ones H1368 for mine anger H639, [even] them that rejoice H5947 in my highness H1346.
[4] The noise H6963 of a multitude H1995 in the mountains H2022, like as H1823 of a great H7227 people H5971; a tumultuous H7588 noise H6963 of the kingdoms H4467 of nations H1471 gathered together H622 (8737): the LORD H3068 of hosts H6635 mustereth H6485 (8764) the host H6635 of the battle H4421.
[5] They come H935 (8802) from a far H4801 country H776, from the end H7097 of heaven H8064, [even] the LORD H3068, and the weapons H3627 of his indignation H2195, to destroy H2254 (8763) the whole land H776.
[6] Howl H3213 (8685) ye; for the day H3117 of the LORD H3068 [is] at hand H7138; it shall come H935 (8799) as a destruction H7701 from the Almighty H7706.
[7] Therefore shall all hands H3027 be faint H7503 (8799), and every man’s H582 heart H3824 shall melt H4549 (8735):
[8] And they shall be afraid H926 (8738): pangs H6735 and sorrows H2256 shall take hold H270 (8799) of them; they shall be in pain H2342 (8799) as a woman that travaileth H3205 (8802): they shall be amazed H8539 (8799) one H376 at another H7453; their faces H6440 [shall be as] flames H3851.
[9] Behold, the day H3117 of the LORD H3068 cometh H935 (8804), cruel H394 both with wrath H5678 and fierce H2740 anger H639, to lay H7760 (8800) the land H776 desolate H8047: and he shall destroy H8045 (8686) the sinners H2400 thereof out of it.
[10] For the stars H3556 of heaven H8064 and the constellations H3685 thereof shall not give H1984 (8686) their light H216: the sun H8121 shall be darkened H2821 (8804) in his going forth H3318 (8800), and the moon H3394 shall not cause her light H216 to shine H5050 (8686).
[11] And I will punish H6485 (8804) the world H8398 for [their] evil H7451, and the wicked H7563 for their iniquity H5771; and I will cause the arrogancy H1347 of the proud H2086 to cease H7673 (8689), and will lay low H8213 (8686) the haughtiness H1346 of the terrible H6184.
[12] I will make a man H582 more precious H3365 (8686) than fine gold H6337; even a man H120 than the golden wedge H3800 of Ophir H211.
[13] Therefore I will shake H7264 (8686) the heavens H8064, and the earth H776 shall remove H7493 (8799) out of her place H4725, in the wrath H5678 of the LORD H3068 of hosts H6635, and in the day H3117 of his fierce H2740 anger H639.
[14] And it shall be as the chased H5080 (8716) roe H6643, and as a sheep H6629 that no man taketh up H6908 (8764): they shall every man H376 turn H6437 (8799) to his own people H5971, and flee H5127 (8799) every one H376 into his own land H776.
[15] Every one that is found H4672 (8737) shall be thrust through H1856 (8735); and every one that is joined H5595 (8737) [unto them] shall fall H5307 (8799) by the sword H2719.
[16] Their children H5768 also shall be dashed to pieces H7376 (8792) before their eyes H5869; their houses H1004 shall be spoiled H8155 (8735), and their wives H802 ravished H7901 (8735) (8675) H7693 (8735).
[17] Behold, I will stir up H5782 (8688) the Medes H4074 against them, which shall not regard H2803 (8799) silver H3701; and [as for] gold H2091, they shall not delight H2654 (8799) in it.
[18] [Their] bows H7198 also shall dash H7376 the young men H5288 to pieces H7376 (8762); and they shall have no pity H7355 (8762) on the fruit H6529 of the womb H990; their eye H5869 shall not spare H2347 (8799) children H1121.
[19] And Babylon H894, the glory H6643 of kingdoms H4467, the beauty H8597 of the Chaldees H3778’ excellency H1347, shall be as when God H430 overthrew H4114 Sodom H5467 and Gomorrah H6017.
[20] It shall never H5331 be inhabited H3427 (8799), neither shall it be dwelt H7931 (8799) in from generation H1755 to generation H1755: neither shall the Arabian H6163 pitch tent H167 (8762) there; neither shall the shepherds H7462 (8802) make their fold H7257 (8686) there.
[21] But wild beasts of the desert H6728 shall lie H7257 (8804) there; and their houses H1004 shall be full H4390 (8804) of doleful creatures H255; and owls H1323 H3284 shall dwell H7931 (8804) there, and satyrs H8163 shall dance H7540 (8762) there.
[22] And the wild beasts of the islands H338 shall cry H6030 (8804) in their desolate houses H490, and dragons H8577 in [their] pleasant H6027 palaces H1964: and her time H6256 [is] near H7138 to come H935 (8800), and her days H3117 shall not be prolonged H4900 (8735).

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!
