Yahweh’s plan for Babylon (Jer 51:29-51:29)

“The land trembles.

The land writhes

In pain.

This is Yahweh’s purposes

Against Babylon,

To make the land

Of Babylon

A desolation,

Without inhabitants.”

This simple and clear plan of Yahweh was to make the Babylonian land tremble and struggle in pain. Yahweh wanted to make Babylon a desolate place without anybody living there.
