35  A sword is for the Chaldeans, says the Lord, and for the inhabitants of Babylon, and for her leaders, and for her wise ones.

36  A sword is upon the boasters, and they shall become fools; a sword is upon her mighty men, and they shall be dismayed.

Jer27:36  a sword upon her warriors, and they shall be weakened: a sword upon their horses, and upon their chariots

36  A sword is for her diviners, who will be fooled. A sword is for her strong ones, who will be afraid.

37  A sword is upon their horses, and upon their chariots, and upon all the mingled people that are in the midst of her, and they shall become as women; a sword is upon her treasures, and they shall be robbed.

Jer27:37  a sword upon their warriors and upon the mixed people in the midst of her; and they shall be as women: a sword upon the treasures, and they shall be scattered upon her water,

Jer27:39  Therefore shall idols dwell in the islands, and the young of monsters shall dwell in it: it shall not be inhabited any more for ever.

39  Because of this, dragons will live there with the fig fauns, and ostriches will live in it. And it will no longer be inhabited, even in perpetuity, nor will it be raised up, even from generation to generation.
