NIV 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. RHE 2 Take a millstone and grind meal: uncover thy shame, strip thy shoulder, make bare thy legs, pass over the rivers. NIV 2 Take millstones and grind flour; take off your veil. Lift up your skirts, bare your legs, and wade through the streams. RHE 3 Thy nakedness shall be discovered, and thy shame shall be seen: I will take vengeance, and no man shall resist me. NIV 3 Your nakedness will be exposed and your shame uncovered. I will take vengeance; I will spare no one." RHE 4 Our redeemer, the Lord of hosts is his name, the Holy One of Israel. NIV 4 Our Redeemer--the LORD Almighty is his name-- is the Holy One of Israel.

RHE 6 I was angry with my people, I have polluted my inheritance, and have given them into thy hand: thou hast shewn no mercy to them: upon the ancient thou hast laid thy yoke exceeding heavy.
