20 Go forth from Babylon. Flee from the Chaldeans. With a voice of singing declare and tell this, utter it even to the end of the earth; say, "The LORD has redeemed his servant Jacob."
5 "Look at the heathen and see! Be utterly amazed! For I will work a work in your days which you will not believe even if you were told.
6 For lo, I raise up the Chaldeans, that bitter and impetuous nation, which shall march through the breadth of the land to possess the dwelling places that are not their's.
7 They are terrible and dreadful; their judgment and their dignity proceeds from themselves.
1 "Come down, and sit in the dust, O virgin daughter of Babylon; sit on the ground without a throne, O daughter of the Chaldeans. For you shall no more be called tender and delicate.
|Revelation 18:4 |
4 And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, "Come out of her, my people, so that you do not share in her sins, and so you will not receive her plagues.2 [Some of God's people are still in Christendom Babylon; God is pleading with his elect to leave the false church. Arise and depart, for this is not the rest. Because it is defiled, it shall destroy you, even with a grievous destruction. Micah 2:10]
