Jeremiah 51:11-12 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)
11 Sharpen the arrows,
fill the quivers;
The Lord has stirred up the spirit of the kings of the Medes,
for his resolve is Babylon’s destruction.
Yes, it is retribution from the Lord,
retribution for his temple.
12 Over the walls of Babylon raise a signal,
reinforce the watch;
For the Lord has both planned and carried out
what he spoke against the inhabitants of Babylon.
