5 For Israel hath not been forsaken, nor Judah of his God, of the Lord of hosts; though their land was filled with sin against the Holy One of Israel.

7 Babylon hath been a golden cup in the Lord's hand, that made all the earth drunken; the nations have drunken of her wine; therefore the nations are mad.
8 Babylon is suddenly fallen and destroyed; howl for her; take balm for her pain, if so be she may be healed.
9 We would have healed Babylon, but she is not healed; forsake her and let us go everyone into his own country; for her judgment reacheth unto heaven, and is lifted up even to the skies.
10 The Lord hath brought forth our righteousness; come, and let us declare in Zion the work of the Lord our God.
