IS 21:2 A grievous vision is declared to me; the treacherous dealer dealeth treacherously, and the spoiler plundereth. Go up, O Elam: besiege, O Media; all her sighing have I made to cease.

IS 21:3 Therefore are my loins filled with pain: pangs have taken hold upon me, as the pangs of a woman that travaileth: I was bowed down at the hearing of it; I was dismayed at the seeing of it.

IS 21:5 Prepare the table, watch in the watch-tower, eat, drink: arise, ye princes, and anoint the shield.

IS 21:6 For thus hath the Lord said to me, Go, set a watchman, let him declare what he seeth.

IS 21:8 And he cried, a lion: My lord, I stand continually upon the watch-tower in the day time, and I am set in my ward whole nights.

IS 21:9 And behold, here cometh a chariot of men, with a couple of horsemen. And he answered and said, Babylon is fallen, is fallen; and all the graven images of her gods he hath broken to the ground.

IS 21:10 O my threshing, and the corn of my floor; that which I have heard from the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel, have I declared to you.

IS 21:11 The burden of Dumah. He calleth to me out of Seir, Watchman, what of the night? Watchman, what of the night?

IS 21:12 The watchman said, The morning cometh, and also the night: if ye will inquire, inquire ye: return, come.

IS 21:13 The burden upon Arabia. In the forest in Arabia shall ye lodge, O ye traveling companies of Dedanim.

IS 21:14 The inhabitants of the land of Tema brought water to him that was thirsty, they met with their bread him that fled.

IS 21:15 For they fled from the swords, from the drawn sword, and from the bent bow, and from the grievousness of war.

IS 21:16 For thus hath the Lord said to me, Within a year, according to the years of a hireling, and all the glory of Kedar shall fail:

IS 21:17 And the residue of the number of archers, the mighty men of the children of Kedar, shall be diminished: for the LORD God of Israel hath spoken it.
