Isaiah 13, a prophecy against Babylon.

Chapter 13 through 24 are a series of prophesies of disasters for all kinds of places and Peoples.  Babylon will take Israel into captivity.

Today is no different. This time people are fleeing the area. Hostilities are again increasing.

The city of Babylon was not very big, but it controlled a large territory.

The Day of the LORD as described in Matthew 24

Same account according to St. Mark in the old Wycliffe translation from around 1390 modified into modern language.

 

The ruins of Babylon are being restored, before the Mid-east War Saddam Hussein wanted to make it a historical Disneyland. The four pictures below show Baghdad today. The upper left picture shows one of Saddam Hussein’s many palaces overlooking the old ruin City of Babylon.
