(Read Jeremiah 51 Part 1 First)

58 This is what the LORD Almighty says: "The wide walls of Babylon will be leveled to the ground, and her high gates will be burned. The builders from many lands have worked in vain, for their work will be destroyed by fire!"

59 The prophet Jeremiah gave this message to Zedekiah's staff officer, Seraiah son of Neriah and grandson of Mahseiah, when he went to Babylon with King Zedekiah of Judah. This was during the fourth year of Zedekiah's reign.*1

60 Jeremiah had recorded on a scroll all the terrible disasters that would soon come upon Babylon.

61 He said to Seraiah, "When you get to Babylon, read aloud everything on this scroll.

62 Then say, `LORD, you have said that you will destroy Babylon so that neither people nor animals will remain here. She will lie empty and abandoned forever.'

63 Then, when you have finished reading the scroll, tie it to a stone, and throw it into the Euphrates River.

64 Then say, `In this same way Babylon and her people will sink, never again to rise, because of the disasters I will bring upon her.' " This is the end of Jeremiah's messages.
