Babylon will be a heap of ruins, a haunt of jackals, an object of horror and scorn, a place where no-one lives.
"Babylon will become a heap of ruins, a haunt of jackals, An object of horror and hissing, without inhabitants.
and Babylon will become a heap of rubble, haunted by jackals. It will be an object of horror and contempt, without a single person living there.
Babylon will be a pile of rubble, scavenged by stray dogs and cats, A dumping ground for garbage, a godforsaken ghost town.'
And Babylon will become a mass of broken walls, a hole for jackals, a cause of wonder and surprise, without a living man in it.
and Babylon shall become a heap of ruins, a den of jackals, an object of horror and of hissing, without inhabitant.
Babylon shall become a heap, A dwelling place for jackals, An astonishment and a hissing, Without an inhabitant.
