"Come down, and sit in the dust, you virgin daughter of Bavel! Sit on the ground, not on a throne, daughter of the Kasdim! No longer are you to be called dainty and delicate.
Take the millstones, and grind meal; take off your veil, strip off your skirt, uncover your legs, wade through the streams.
Your private parts will be exposed; yes, your shame will be seen. I am going to take vengeance, and no one will stand in my way."
Our Redeemer! ADONAI-Tzva'ot is his name, the Holy One of Isra'el!
"Sit there speechless, go into darkness, you daughter of the Kasdim! For you will no longer be called the mistress of kingdoms.
I was angry with my people, I desecrated my own possession and gave them over to you. But you showed them no mercy; you made your yoke very heavy, even upon the aged.
You said, 'I will be mistress forever.' so you didn't consider these things or think about the consequences.
