The power of King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon (Jer 27:6-27:7)

“Now I have given

All these lands

Into the hand of

King Nebuchadnezzar,

Of Babylon,

My servant.

I have given him

Even the wild animals

Of the field

To serve him.

All the nations

Shall serve him.

They shall serve his son.

They shall serve his grandson,

Until the time

Of his own land comes.

Then many nations

With great kings

Shall make him their slave.”

The all powerful God of Israel says that he has given all these lands into the hands of King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon (605-562 BCE). In fact, Yahweh calls him his servant, as if he was similar to a prophet of Yahweh. He even gave him the wild animals to serve him. All the countries would serve him, his son, and his grandson, until the time comes when many countries will make the Babylonians slaves in the third generation.
