The Humiliation of Babylon

1 1Come down and sit in the dust, O virgin 2daughter of Babylon; 3sit on the ground without a throne, O daughter of 4the Chaldeans! 5For you shall no more be called tender and delicate. 2 Take the millstones and 6grind flour, 7put off your veil, strip off your robe, uncover your legs, pass through the rivers. 3 Your nakedness shall be uncovered, and your disgrace shall be seen. I will take vengeance, and I will spare no one. 4 8Our Redeemer--the LORD of hosts is his name-- is the Holy One of Israel. 5 9Sit in silence, and go into darkness, O daughter of 10the Chaldeans; for you shall no more be called 11the mistress of kingdoms. 6 12I was angry with my people; I profaned my heritage; I gave them into your hand; 13you showed them no mercy; on the aged you made your yoke exceedingly heavy. 7 You said, "I shall be 14mistress forever," so that you did not lay these things to heart or remember their end.
