The fugitives from Babylon (Jer 50:28-50:28)

“Listen!

The fugitives,

The refugees

From the land

Of Babylon,

Are coming

To declare in Zion

The vengeance

Of Yahweh,

Our God,

Vengeance

For his temple.”

As the people return from Babylon to Jerusalem, Zion, they are happy that God had brought his vengeance against the Babylonians. After all, the Babylonians had destroyed their Temple. Now the vengeance of Yahweh was destroying the Babylonian temples.
