Another country has hit Babylon (Jer 50:3-50:3)

“Out of the north,

A nation has come up

Against her.

It shall make her land

A desolation.

No one shall live in it.

Both human beings

As well as animals

Shall flee away.”

As usual, the attacker is from the north. However, Persia was east of Babylon, not north of it, when it attacked Babylon in 539 BCE. As per usual, the land will be devastated, so that no one would want to live there. All the humans and animals would want to leave this desolate land.
