11Come 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.
Take the millstones and 6grind flour, 7put off your veil, strip off your robe, uncover your legs, pass through the rivers.
Your nakedness shall be uncovered, and your disgrace shall be seen. I will take vengeance, and I will spare no one.
48Our Redeemer--the LORD of hosts is his name-- is the Holy One of Israel.
59Sit in silence, and go into darkness, O daughter of 10the Chaldeans; for you shall no more be called 11the mistress of kingdoms.
612I 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.
You said, "I shall be 14mistress forever," so that you did not lay these things to heart or remember their end.
