O King of Babylon , My God has numbered the days of your reign. A nation that has not humbled itself will be given over to her enemies. I have placed every King and removed them. You do not honor me. You do not know me. I AM THAT I AM. I am an all consuming fire. Plague did not bring you to your knees. Death did not bring you to your knees. Your judgement will continue. You have spurned me with your OWN LIPS. Now I will spurn you. You have lied to those I have entrusted in your care . MENE ,MENE , MENE , TEKEL , PARSIN. Your hands are stained with the blood of the innocents. I gave commandments as guide to your forefathers. A nation who does not recognize it’s creator will be destroyed. MENE ,MENE ,MENE, TEKEL, PARISIN. My handwriting is on your wall, O King of Babylon. Destruction is at your door. My children repent and turn from your sinful ways. Soon my warning will come to an end . There will be silence in the heavens and on the earth and famine in the land. MENE, MENE ,TEKEL PARISIN.
