When the Lord has given you rest from your sorrow and pain and from your trouble and unrest and from the hard service with which you were made to serve,
You shall take up this [taunting] parable against the king of Babylon and say, How the oppressor has stilled [the restless insolence]! The golden and exacting city has ceased!
The Lord has broken the staff of the wicked, the scepter of the [tyrant] rulers,
Who smote the peoples in anger with incessant blows and trod down the nations in wrath with unrelenting persecution—[until] he who smote is persecuted and no one hinders any more.
The whole earth is at rest and is quiet; they break forth into singing.
Isaiah 14:3-7 (AMP).
