NOTES: the Shepherds of Babylon

back to Babylon To Be Rebuilt

Nor will shepherds make their flocks lie down there.

Isaiah 13:20



THIS PROPHECY HAS NEVER BEEN FULFILLED!

back to Babylon To Be Rebuilt




NOTES

A few black tents and flocks of sheep and camels were scattered over the yellow plain. They belonged chiefly to the Zobeide, an ancient tribe, renowned in the history of the conquering Arabs under their first caliphs, and now pasturing their flocks in the wilds of Babylonia.
