Babylon would conquer Judah, but the victory would not last. God would rescue and restore His people.

ESV Text: Jeremiah 51:42-50


KJV Text:

(Alt. audio): Chapter: 51
42 The sea is come up upon Babylon: she is covered with the multitude of the waves thereof. 43 Her cities are a desolation, a dry land, and a wilderness, a land wherein no man dwelleth, neither doth any son of man pass thereby. 44 And I will punish Bel in Babylon, and I will bring forth out of his mouth that which he hath swallowed up: and the nations shall not flow together any more unto him: yea, the wall of Babylon shall fall. 45 My people, go ye out of the midst of her, and deliver ye every man his soul from the fierce anger of the LORD. 46 And lest your heart faint, and ye fear for the rumour that shall be heard in the land; a rumour shall both come one year, and after that in another year shall come a rumour, and violence in the land, ruler against ruler. 47 Therefore, behold, the days come, that I will do judgment upon the graven images of Babylon: and her whole land shall be confounded, and all her slain shall fall in the midst of her. 48 Then the heaven and the earth, and all that is therein, shall sing for Babylon: for the spoilers shall come unto her from the north, saith the LORD. 49 As Babylon hath caused the slain of Israel to fall, so at Babylon shall fall the slain of all the earth. 50 Ye that have escaped the sword, go away, stand not still: remember the LORD afar off, and let Jerusalem come into your mind.(KJV)


Hymn: TLH 393:
From God Shall Naught Divide Me

Hymnary.org — Organ Audio

1. From God shall naught divide me, 
For He is true for aye 
And on my path will guide me, 
Who else should often stray. 
His right hand holdeth me; 
For me He truly careth, 
My burdens ever beareth 
Wherever I may be. 

2. When man’s help and affection 
Shall unavailing prove, 
God grants me His protection 
And shows His pow’r and love. 
He helps in ev’ry need, 
From sin and shame redeems me, 
From chains and bonds reclaims me, 
Yea, e’en from death I’m freed. 

3. God shall be my Reliance 
In sorrow’s darkest night; 
Its dread I bid defiance 
When He is at my right. 
I unto Him commend 
My body, soul, and spirit– 
They are His own by merit– 
All’s well then at the end. 

4. Oh, praise Him, for He never 
Forgets our daily need; 
Oh, blest the hour whenever 
To Him our thoughts can speed; 
Yea, all the time we spend 
Without Him is but wasted, 
Till we His joy have tasted, 
The joy that hath no end. 

5. Yea, when the world shall perish 
With all its pride and power, 
Whatever worldlings cherish 
Shall vanish in that hour. 
But though in death they make 
The deepest grave our cover, 
When there our sleep is over, 
Our God will us awake. 

6. What though I here must suffer 
Distress and trials sore, 
I merit ways still rougher; 
And yet there is in store 
For me eternal bliss, 
Yea, pleasures without measure, 
Since Christ is now my Treasure 
And shall be evermore.
