and thou shalt say, Thus shall Babylon sink, and shall not rise again because of the evil that I will bring upon her; and they shall be weary. Thus far are the words of Jeremiah. (ASV)
This is one of numerous verses in which Jeremiah falsely prophesies the imminent capture and permanent destruction of Babylon (which surrendered to the Persians without a fight and was left intact). See the Jeremiah 51:11 entry for further details. --Robert Stevens 10:25, 27 Jul 2006 (CDT)
