The punishment for Babylon (Jer 51:24-51:24)

“‘I will repay


With all the inhabitants

Of Chaldea,

Before your very eyes,

For all the wrong

That they have done

In Zion.’

Says Yahweh.”

Yahweh was simple and direct in this oracle about Babylon. He was going to repay Babylon with the all the Chaldeans for the wrongs that they had done to Zion, Jerusalem. This was going to happen before their very eyes.
