Nineveh's Complete Ruin

1 1Woe to the bloody city, completely full of lies and pillage ; Her prey never departs. 2 The 2noise of the whip, The noise of the rattling of the wheel, Galloping horses And abounding chariots ! 3 Horsemen charging, Swords flashing, 3spears gleaming, 4Many slain, a mass of corpses, And b5countless dead bodies - They stumble over cthe dead bodies ! 4 All because of the 6many harlotries of the harlot, The charming one, the 7mistress of sorceries, Who 8sells nations by her harlotries And families by her sorceries. 5 "Behold, 9I am against you," declares the LORD of hosts ; "And I will d10lift up your skirts over your face, And 11show to the nations your nakedness And to the kingdoms your disgrace. 6 "I will 12throw efilth on you And 13make you vile, And set you up as a 14spectacle. 7 "And it will come about that all who see you Will fshrink from you and say, 'Nineveh is devastated ! 15Who will grieve for her?' Where will I seek comforters for you?" 8 Are you better than g16No-amon , Which was situated by the 17waters of the Nile, With water surrounding her, Whose rampart was hthe sea, Whose wall consisted of ithe sea ? 9 18Ethiopia was her might, And Egypt too, without limits. 19Put and 20Lubim were among jher helpers.
