“For thus says the LORD: After seventy years are completed at Babylon; I will visit you and perform My good word toward you; and cause you to return to this place” (Jeremiah 29:10 NKJV). Caleb climbed up on a stack of crates to examine some wooden cartons near the ceiling. Some were smaller; but some were very large. On the back side of one large wooden crate; he could see familiar characters printed in Aramaic. Then he saw another crate. As his gaze swept the area; he could see many; many crates. All labeled the same: “War trophies from Judah Relics from Zedekiah’s temple; Temple treasures from Jerusalem.” “Hey; Tamzi Come up here” he called. “You’ve got to see this!” All the Jews were talking about it—Jeremiah’s 70-year prophecy. Some thought it would be fulfilled; others thought that God had abandoned His people once and for all. And now; Caleb and his Babylonian friend; Tamzi; had discovered something important–something really important. Caleb was certain of that; but who could confirm his suspicions? The Watchers follows Caleb; Tamzi; their families; Allamu the blind beggar; and the old prophet Daniel; as before their very eyes the mighty kingdom of Babylon is overthrown by Cyrus and his Medo-Persian army. Was this the beginning of the end for the Babylonian Jews or the sign of a new beginning? God would keep His promise—Caleb was sure of it!
