“For thus hath the Lord sayd vnto me; Goe, set a watchman, let him declare what he seeth.”
King James Version (KJV)
3. Therefore are my loynes filled with paine, pangs haue taken hold vpon me, as the pangs of a woman that trauelleth: I was bowed downe at the hearing of it, I was dismayed at the seeing of it. 4. My heart panted, fearefulnesse affrighted me: the night of my pleasure hath he turned into feare vnto me. 5. Prepare the table, watch in the watch-tower, eate, drinke: arise yee princes, and anoint the shield. 6. For thus hath the Lord sayd vnto me; Goe, set a watchman, let him declare what he seeth. 7. And he saw a charet with a couple of horsemen, a charet of asses, and a charet of camels; and hee hearkened diligently with much heede. 8. And he cryed; A lyon: my Lord, I stand continually vpon the watch-tower in the day time, and I am set in my ward whole nights. 9. And behold, heere commeth a charet of men with a couple of horsemen: and he answered and sayd; Babylon is fallen, is fallen, and all the grauen images of her Gods he hath broken vnto the ground.
