For the Lord said to me, “Go, set a watchman. Let him declare what he sees. When he sees a troop, horsemen in pairs, a troop of donkeys, a troop of camels, he shall listen diligently with great attentiveness.”

Behold, here comes a troop of men, horsemen in pairs.” He answered, “Fallen, fallen is Babylon; and all the engraved images of her gods are broken to the ground.

The watchman said, “The morning comes, and also the night. If you will inquire, inquire. Come back again.”
The burden on Arabia. In the forest in Arabia you will lodge, you caravans of Dedanites.
