JER 51:61 And Jeremiah said to Seraiah, When thou comest to Babylon,
and shalt see, and shalt read all these words;
JER 51:62 Then shalt thou say, O LORD, thou hast spoken against this
place, to cut it off, that none shall remain in it, neither man nor
beast, but that it shall be desolate for ever.
JER 51:63 And it shall be, when thou hast made an end of reading this
book, that thou shalt bind a stone to it, and cast it into the midst of
JER 51:64 And thou shalt say, Thus shall Babylon sink, and shall not
rise from the evil that I will bring upon her: and they shall be weary.
Thus far are the words of Jeremiah.
