GOD'S WORD Translation (GW) New International Version (NIV)
1 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. 1 "Go down, sit in the dust, Virgin Daughter of Babylon; sit on the ground without a throne, Daughter of the Babylonians. No more will you be called tender or delicate.
2 Take millstones and grind flour. Remove your veil. Take off your skirt. Uncover your legs, and cross the river. 2 Take millstones and grind flour; take off your veil. Lift up your skirts, bare your legs, and wade through the streams.
3 People will see you naked. People will see your shame. I will take revenge. I won't spare anyone. 3 Your nakedness will be exposed and your shame uncovered. I will take vengeance; I will spare no one."
4 Our defender is the Holy One of Israel. His name is the LORD of Armies. 4 Our Redeemer--the LORD Almighty is his name-- is the Holy One of Israel.
5 Go into the dark, and sit in silence, princess of the Babylonians! You will no longer be called the queen of kingdoms. 5 "Sit in silence, go into darkness, Daughter of the Babylonians; no more will you be called queen of kingdoms.
6 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. 6 I was angry with my people and desecrated my inheritance; I gave them into your hand, and you showed them no mercy. Even on the aged you laid a very heavy yoke.
