Babylon’s Titles

From the old box (19th & 20th century Christadelphian writings)

Babylon, the great city of the Empire bearing that name, was built on both sides of the Euphrates. The excavations at Borsippa, and adjacent places on the site of the city, reveal its great antiquity and greatness. It was of considerable size, and was manifestly unsurpassed for its magnificence (Dan. iv. 30).

The Bible speaks of it as

“The hammer of the whole earth”(Jer. 1. 23); “The glory of Kingdoms” (Isa. xiii. 19);”The beauty of the Chaldees’ excellency” (ibid); “The golden city” (Isa. xiv. 4); “The lady of Kingdoms” (Isa. xlvii. 5); “The praise of the whole earth”(Jer. li. 41); “Great Babylon” (Dan. iv. 30).

The excavations of Sir Henry Layard, and others, in the middle of last century, confirm the reports of its greatness, as visits to the British Museum, London, and the Louvre, at Paris, amply illustrate.

See Gen. x. 10; 2 Kings xvii. 80; xx. 12; 2 Chron.xxxvi.; Isa. xiii. 2; xxi. 9; xlvii.; xlviii.; Jer. xxv. 12;1.; li.; Ezra I.
