Come down , and sit in the dust, O virgindaughter of Babylon,sit on the ground: there is no throne, O daughter of the Chaldeans: for thou shalt no more be calledtender and delicate.2Take the millstones, and grindmeal:uncover thy locks, make bare the leg,uncover the thigh, pass over the rivers.3
Thy nakedness shall be uncovered , yea, thy shame shall be seen : I will takevengeance, and I will not meet thee as a man.4
As for our redeemer , the LORD of hosts is his name, the Holy One of Israel.5Sit thou silent, and get thee into darkness, O daughter of the Chaldeans: for thou shalt no more be called , The lady of kingdoms.6
I was wroth with my people, I have polluted mine inheritance, and given them into thine hand: thou didst shew them no mercy; upon the ancient hast thou veryheavily laid thy yoke.7
And thou saidst , I shall be a lady for ever: so that thou didst not lay these things to thy heart, neither didst remember the latter end of it.
