Go, sit in the dirt, virgin princess of Babylon! Sit on the ground, not on a throne, princess of the Babylonians! You will no longer be called soft and delicate.
Take millstones and grind flour. Remove your veil. Take off your skirt. Uncover your legs, and cross the river.
People will see you naked. People will see your shame. I will take revenge. I won't spare anyone.
Our defender is the Holy One of Israel. His name is the LORD of Armies.
Go into the dark, and sit in silence, princess of the Babylonians! You will no longer be called the queen of kingdoms.
I was angry with my people. I dishonored those who belong to me. I put them under your control. You showed them no mercy. You placed a heavy burden on old people.
You said, "I will always be a queen." You didn't carefully consider these things or keep in mind how they would end.
