The idols of Babylon shall be destroyed. Salvation is promised through Christ.
 Bel is broken, Nebo is destroyed: their idols are put upon beasts and cattle, your burdens of heavy weight even unto weariness.
Confractus est Bel, contritus est Nabo; facta sunt simulacra eorum bestiis et jumentis, onera vestra gravi pondere usque ad lassitudinem.
 They are consumed, and are broken together: they could not save him that carried them, and they themselves shall go into captivity.
Contabuerunt, et contrita sunt simul; non potuerunt salvare portantem, et anima eorum in captivitatem ibit.
 Hearken unto me, O house of Jacob, all the remnant of the house of Israel, who are carried by my bowels, are borne up by my womb.
Audite me, domus Jacob, et omne residuum domus Israel; qui portamini a meo utero, qui gestamini a mea vulva.
 Even to your old age I am the same, and to your grey hairs I will carry you: I have made you, and I will bear: I will carry and will save.
Usque ad senectam ego ipse, et usque ad canos ego portabo; ego feci, et ego feram; ego portabo, et salvabo.
 To whom have you likened me, and made me equal, and compared me, and made me like?
Cui assimilastis me, et adaequastis, et comparastis me, et fecistis similem?
 You that contribute gold out of the bag, and weigh out silver in the scales: and hire a goldsmith to make a god: and they fall down and worship.
Qui confertis aurum de sacculo, et argentum statera ponderatis, conducentes aurificem ut faciat deum, et procidunt, et adorant.
 They bear him on their shoulders and carry him, and set him in his piece, and he shall stand, and shall not stir out of his place. Yea, when they shall cry also unto him, he shall not hear: he shall not save them from tribulation.
Portant illum in humeris gestantes, et ponentes in loco suo, et stabit, ac de loco suo non movebitur; sed et cum clamaverint ad eum, non audiet; de tribulatione non salvabit eos.
 Remember this, and be ashamed: return, ye transgressors, to the heart.
Mementote istud, et confundamini; redite, praevaricatores, ad cor.
 Remember the former age, for I am God, and there is no God beside, neither is there the like to me:
Recordamini prioris saeculi, quoniam ego sum Deus, et non est ultra Deus nec est similis mei.
 Who shew from the beginning the things that shall be at last, and from ancient times the things that as yet are not done, saying: My counsel shall stand, and all my will shall be done:
Annuntians ab exordio novissimum, et ab initio quae necdum facta sunt, dicens : Consilium meum stabit, et omnis voluntas mea fiet.
 Who call a bird from the east, and from a far country the man of my own will, and I have spoken, and will bring it to pass: I have created, and I will do it. Hear me, O ye hardhearted, who are far from justice.
Vocans ab oriente avem, et de terra longinqua virum voluntatis meae; et locutus sum, et adducam illud; creavi et faciam illud.
 I have brought my justice near, it shall not be afar off: and my salvation shall not tarry. I will give salvation in Sion, and my glory in Israel.
Audite me, duro corde, qui longe estis a justitia. Prope feci justitiam meam, non elongabitur, et salus mea non morabitur. Dabo in Sion salutem, et in Israel gloriam meam.
