Hebrew Names Version (HNV) New International Version (NIV)
1 Come down, and sit in the dust, virgin daughter of Bavel; sit on the ground without a throne, daughter of the Kasdim: for you shall no more be called tender 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 the millstones, and grind meal; remove your veil, strip off the train, uncover the leg, pass through the rivers. 2 Take millstones and grind flour; take off your veil. Lift up your skirts, bare your legs, and wade through the streams.
3 Your nakedness shall be uncovered, yes, your shame shall be seen: I will take vengeance, and will spare no man. 3 Your nakedness will be exposed and your shame uncovered. I will take vengeance; I will spare no one."
4 Our Redeemer, the LORD of hosts is his name, the Holy One of Yisra'el. 4 Our Redeemer--the LORD Almighty is his name-- is the Holy One of Israel.
5 Sit you silent, and get you into darkness, daughter of the Kasdim; for you shall no more be called The mistress 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 profaned my inheritance, and gave them into your hand: you did show them no mercy; on the aged have you very heavily laid your yoke. 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.
