Prophecy and Tyre

What did the prophets say would become of the great, rich,
strong, proud city of Babylon?

Babylon, the jewel of kingdoms, the glory of the Babylonians'
pride, will be overthrown by God like Sodom and Gomorrah.
She will never be inhabited or lived in through all generations;
no Arab will pitch his tent there, no shepherd will rest his
flocks there. But desert creatures will lie there.
Isaiah 13:19-21

Babylon will be a heap of ruins, a haunt of jackals, a place
where no one lives. This is what the Lord Almighty says:
'Babylon's thick walls will be leveled and her high gates set
on fire.
' Jeremiah 51:37,58

The Babylonians thought Babylon could never fall. Its great stone
walls were over 90 meters high and 18 meters thick. The city was a
mighty fortress. Yet the prophets wrote the messages that God
dictated, and these came true - every single word. When we
compare the Bible with history we have proof that the Bible
prophecies are true.
