King James Version

The Humiliation of Babylon

47Come down, and sit in the dust, O virgin daughter of Babylon, sit on the ground: there is no throne, O daughter of the Chaldeans: for thou shalt no more be called tender and delicate.H3381H3427H6083H1330H1323H894H3427H776H3678H1323H3778H3254H7121H7390H6028 2Take the millstones, and grind meal: uncover thy locks, make bare the leg, uncover the thigh, pass over the rivers.H3947H7347H2912H7058H1540H6777H2834H7640H1540H7785H5674H5104 3Thy nakedness shall be uncovered, yea, thy shame shall be seen: I will take vengeance, and I will not meet thee as a man.H6172H1540H2781H7200H3947H5359H6293H120 4As for our redeemer, the LORD of hosts is his name, the Holy One of Israel.H1350H3068H6635H8034H6918H3478 5Sit thou silent, and get thee into darkness, O daughter of the Chaldeans: for thou shalt no more be called, The lady of kingdoms.H3427H1748H935H2822H1323H3778H3254H7121H1404H4467 6I was wroth with my people, I have polluted mine inheritance, and given them into thine hand: thou didst shew them no mercy; upon the ancient hast thou very heavily laid thy yoke.H7107H5971H2490H5159H5414H3027H7760H7356H2205H3966H3513H5923 7And thou saidst, I shall be a lady for ever: so that thou didst not lay these things to thy heart, neither didst remember the latter end of it.H559H1404H5769H7760H3820H2142H319 8Therefore hear now this, thou that art given to pleasures, that dwellest carelessly, that sayest in thine heart, I am, and none else beside me; I shall not sit as a widow, neither shall I know the loss of children:H8085H5719H3427H983H559H3824H657H3427H490H3045H7908 9But these two things shall come to thee in a moment in one day, the loss of children, and widowhood: they shall come upon thee in their perfection for the multitude of thy sorceries, and for the great abundance of thine enchantments.H8147H935H7281H259H3117H7908H489H935H8537H7230H3785H3966H6109H2267 10For thou hast trusted in thy wickedness: thou hast said, None seeth me. Thy wisdom and thy knowledge, it hath perverted thee; and thou hast said in thine heart, I am, and none else beside me.H982H7451H559H7200H2451H1847H7725H559H3820H657 11Therefore shall evil come upon thee; thou shalt not know from whence it riseth: and mischief shall fall upon thee; thou shalt not be able to put it off: and desolation shall come upon thee suddenly, which thou shalt not know.H7451H935H3045H7837H1943H5307H3201H3722H7722H935H6597H3045 12Stand now with thine enchantments, and with the multitude of thy sorceries, wherein thou hast laboured from thy youth; if so be thou shalt be able to profit, if so be thou mayest prevail.H5975H2267H7230H3785H834H3021H5271H3201H3276H6206 13Thou art wearied in the multitude of thy counsels. Let now the astrologers, the stargazers, the monthly prognosticators, stand up, and save thee from these things that shall come upon thee.H3811H7230H6098H1895H8064H2374H3556H2320H3045H5975H3467H935 14Behold, they shall be as stubble; the fire shall burn them; they shall not deliver themselves from the power of the flame: there shall not be a coal to warm at, nor fire to sit before it.H7179H784H8313H5337H5315H3027H3852H1513H2552H217H3427 15Thus shall they be unto thee with whom thou hast laboured, even thy merchants, from thy youth: they shall wander every one to his quarter; none shall save thee.H3021H5503H5271H8582H376H5676H3467
