The Fall of Babylon

1 "Go down and sit in the dust, Virgin Daughter Babylon. Sit on the ground without a throne, Daughter Chaldea! For you will no longer be called pampered and spoiled. 2 Take millstones and grind meal; remove your veil, strip off [your] skirt, bare your thigh, wade through the streams. 3 Your nakedness will be uncovered, and your shame will be exposed. I will take vengeance; I will spare no one.a 4 The Holy One of Israel is our Redeemer; the Lord of Hosts is His name. 5 "Daughter Chaldea, sit in silence and go into darkness. For you will no longer be called mistress of kingdoms. 6 I was angry with My people; I profaned My possession, and I placed them under your control. You showed them no mercy; you made your yoke very heavy on the elderly. 7 You said: I will be the mistress forever. You did not take these things to heart or think about their outcome.
