He turns the fruitful land into salty wastelands, because of the wickedness of those who live there.
Babylon, the most glorious of kingdoms, the flower of Chaldean pride, will be devastated like Sodom and Gomorrah when God destroyed them.
Let him be destroyed like the cities of old that the LORD overthrew without mercy. Terrify him all day long with battle shouts,
It will be like the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah and their neighboring towns," says the LORD. "No one will live there; no one will inhabit it.
