"So Jeremiah wrote in a book all the evil that should come upon Babylon, even all
these words that are written against Babylon.
"And Jeremiah said to Seraiah, When thou comest to Babylon, and shalt see, and
shalt read all these words;
"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
"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 Euphrates:
"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" (Jeremiah 51:60-64).
