Jeremiah chapter 50 and 51 speak of prophecies against Babylon. Now that the Jews have been in captivity for decades and show true sorrow and repentance to the LORD, the LORD tells them through Jeremiah that their enemy, Babylon will suffer and be ruined, while the Jews will be able to hope for their freedom and eventual return to Israel.
Jeremiah 50:34 Strong is their avenger, whose Name is LORD of hosts; He will defend their cause with success, and give rest to the earth, but unrest to those who live in Babylon.
Jeremiah 51: 19, 57
verse 19 Not like these is the portion of Jacob, He is the Creator of all things; Israel is His very own tribe, LORD of hosts is His Name.
verse 57 (regarding Babylon) I will make her princes and her wise men drunk , her governors, her prefects, and her warriors, so that they sleep an eternal sleep, never to awaken, says the King, whose Name is the LORD of hosts.
