Take the millstones, and grind meal
Foretelling that the Chaldeans should be taken captives, and used as such, and sent to prison houses, where they should turn the mill, and grind corn into meal; a very servile work, and which used to be done by captives and slaves, even by female ones, ( Exodus 11:5 ) ( 12:29 ) ( Judges 16:21 ) . The Targum is,
``go into servitude;''of which this was a sign: uncover thy locks:
``uncover the glory of thy kingdom:''make bare the leg;
``thy princes are broken, the people of their army are scattered, they pass away as the waters of the river.''
