"Babylon Has Fallen!"

10 Tevet 5775

We have lived to see the day foretold by the Prophet Jeremiah (chapter 50) ...
...so said the Lord of Hosts, the God of Israel; Behold I visit retribution upon the king of Babylon and upon his land,... The Lord has opened his treasury and has taken out the weapons of His fury, for the Lord God has work in the land of the Chaldeans. ...Hearken to those fleeing and escaping from the land of Babylon to tell in Zion the vengeance of the Lord our God, the vengeance of His Temple. Gather archers against Babylon, all those who bend the bow, encamp against her all around. Let her have no escape. Recompense her according to her deed; according to all that she has done, do to her, for she has dealt wickedly with the Lord, with the Holy One of Israel.


  1. How very true and it's sick to see just how much blood shed has taken place in the past few short years. Yes, yes, of course, I know. Blood shed has been going on for thousands of years, but this is horrific no matter the millenia.
    Also, it is amazing to see the navua coming to life...

  2. ??? I don't understand your comment, Leah. Are you expressing regret for the suffering of the Iraqis ???
