4 you will recite this proverb* against the king of Babylon:
“How the one forcing others to work* has met his end!
How the oppression has ended!+
5 Jehovah has broken the rod of the wicked,
The staff of the rulers,+
6 The one furiously striking peoples with unceasing blows,+
The one angrily subduing nations with relentless persecution.+
