2 And in Ecbatana, the citadel that is uin the province of Media, a scroll was found on which this was written: “A record.
17 Behold, cI am stirring up the Medes against them,
who have no regard for silver
and do not delight in gold.
2 A stern vision is told to me;
wthe traitor betrays,
and the destroyer destroys.
Go up, O xElam;
lay siege, O yMedia;
all the zsighing she has caused
I bring to an end.
11 i“Sharpen the arrows!
Take up the shields!
and every mland under their dominion.
