Isaiah - Chapter 13
1 Proclamation about Babylon, seen by Isaiah son of Amoz.
5 They come from a distant country, from the far horizons, Yahweh and the instruments of his fury to lay the whole country waste.
6 Howl! For the Day of Yahweh is near, coming like devastation from Shaddai.
8 they are panic-stricken, seized with pains and convulsions; they writhe like a woman in labour, they look at one another appalled, with feverish faces.
11 I am going to punish the world for its wickedness and the wicked for their guilt, and put an end to the pride of the arrogant and humble the haughtiness of despots.
12 I shall make people scarcer than pure gold, human life scarcer than the gold of Ophir.

The New Jerusalem Bible (NJB) is a Catholic translation of the Bible published in 1985. The New Jerusalem Bible (NJB) has become the most widely used Roman Catholic Bible outside of the United States. It has the imprimatur of Cardinal George Basil Hume.
Like its predecessor, the Jerusalem Bible, the New Jerusalem Bible (NJB) version is translated "directly from the Hebrew, Greek or Aramaic." The 1973 French translation, the Bible de Jerusalem, is followed only "where the text admits to more than one interpretation." Introductions and notes, with some modifications, are taken from the Bible de Jerusalem.
