NASB — Isaiah 47 — KJV

Lament for Babylon

  1aCome down and sit in the dust,
  O bvirgin cdaughter of Babylon;
  Sit on the ground without a throne,
  O daughter of the Chaldeans!
  For you shall no longer be called dtender and delicate.
  2 “Take the amillstones and bgrind meal.
  Remove your cveil, dstrip off the skirt,
  Uncover the leg, cross the rivers.
  3 “Your anakedness will be uncovered,
  Your shame also will be exposed;
  I will btake vengeance and will not Ispare a man.”
  4 Our aRedeemer, the LORD of hosts is His name,
  The Holy One of Israel.
  5aSit silently, and go into bdarkness,
  O daughter of the Chaldeans,
  For you will no longer be called
  The cqueen of dkingdoms.
  6 “I was angry with My people,
  I profaned My heritage
  And gave them into your hand.
  You did not show mercy to them,
  On the aaged you made your yoke very heavy.
  7 “Yet you said, ‘I will be a aqueen forever.’
  These things you did not bconsider
  Nor remember the coutcome of Ithem.

God's judgment upon Babylon and Chaldea,

1 ¶ Come down, and sit in the dust, O virgin daughter of Babylon, sit on the ground: [there is] no throne, O daughter of the Chaldeans: for thou shalt no more be called tender and delicate. 2 Take the millstones, and grind meal: 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 take vengeance, 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. 5 Sit thou silent, and get thee into darkness, O daughter of the Chaldeans: for thou shalt no more be called, The lady of kingdoms.

pride,

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. 8 Therefore hear now this, [thou that art] given to pleasures, that dwellest carelessly, that sayest in thine heart, I [am], and none else beside me; I shall not sit [as] a widow, neither shall I know the loss of children: 9 But these two [things] shall come to thee in a moment in one day, the loss of children, and widowhood: they shall come upon thee in their perfection for the multitude of thy sorceries, [and] for the great abundance of thine enchantments.

and overboldness,

10 ¶ For thou hast trusted in thy wickedness: thou hast said, None seeth me. Thy wisdom and thy knowledge, it hath perverted thee; and thou hast said in thine heart, I [am], and none else beside me.

shall be unresistable.

11 ¶ Therefore shall evil come upon thee; thou shalt not know from whence it riseth: and mischief shall fall upon thee; thou shalt not be able to put it off: and desolation shall come upon thee suddenly, [which] thou shalt not know. 12 Stand now with thine enchantments, and with the multitude of thy sorceries, wherein thou hast laboured from thy youth; if so be thou shalt be able to profit, if so be thou mayest prevail. 13 Thou art wearied in the multitude of thy counsels. Let now the astrologers, the stargazers, the monthly prognosticators, stand up, and save thee from [these things] that shall come upon thee. 14 Behold, they shall be as stubble; the fire shall burn them; they shall not deliver themselves from the power of the flame: [there shall] not [be] a coal to warm at, [nor] fire to sit before it. 15 Thus shall they be unto thee with whom thou hast laboured, [even] thy merchants, from thy youth: they shall wander every one to his quarter; none shall save thee.
