To the waters Babylon sits upon—
to the peoples, multitudes, nations and tongues
she has made her seat upon:
"Do not hate the people in Babylon!
Do not join the beast in destroying her!
Though she has manipulated and abused you,
do not long for her to be burned
or for her flesh to be eaten.
Do not pray for her nakedness or desolation,
but for her people to be clothed in My Son's blood.
I will bring about her fall, but I am not willing
that any of these little ones in her should be lost.
In your anger do not sin; forgive as I forgave you."
