Daughter Babylon dethroned

1 Go down and sit in the dust, virgin Daughter Babylon! Sit on the ground without a throne, Daughter Chaldea, because they will no longer call you tender and pampered. 2 Take the millstones and grind flour! Remove your veil, strip off your robe, expose your thighs, wade through the rivers! 3 Your nakedness will be exposed, and your disgrace will be seen. I will take vengeance; no one will intervene.a 4 Our redeemer has spoken; the LORD of heavenly forces is his name, the holy one of Israel. 5 Sit silent and go into darkness, Daughter Chaldea, because they will no longer call you Queen of Kingdoms. 6 I was enraged with my people; I made my inheritance impure and put them under your power. You took no pity on them. You made your yoke heavy even on the elderly. 7 You said, "I'm forever; I'm the eternal mistress." You didn't stop and think; you didn't consider the outcome.
