Listen to the Lord when He made battle plans against Babylon,
Make the arrows bright!
Gather the shields!
The Lord has raised up the spirit of the kings of the Medes.
For His plan is against Babylon to destroy it,
Because it is the vengeance of the Lord,
The vengeance for His temple.
Set up the standard on the walls of Babylon;
Make the guard strong…
For the Lord has both devised and done
What He spoke against the inhabitants of Babylon.
Although they could only see the Medes attacking, yet, Jeremiah revealed that the Lord brought on the whole thing, because of the sins of Babylon.
We may not see with the eye the Lord doing things, but He works behind the scenes.
