Yeshayahu (Book of Isaiah), Chapter 47

'"`UNIQ--named-00000000-QINU`"'1 Come down, and sit in the dust, O virgin daughter of Babylon, sit on the ground without a throne, O daughter of the Chaldeans; for thou shalt no more be called tender and delicate.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000001-QINU`"'2 Take the millstones, and grind meal; remove thy veil, strip off the train, uncover the leg, pass through the rivers.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000002-QINU`"'3 Thy nakedness shall be uncovered, yea, thy shame shall be seen; I will take vengeance, and will let no man intercede.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000003-QINU`"'4 Our Redeemer, HaShem of hosts is His name, The Holy One of Israel.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000004-QINU`"'5 Sit thou silent, and get thee into darkness, O daughter of the Chaldeans; for thou shalt no more be called the mistress of kingdoms.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000005-QINU`"'6 I was wroth with My people, I profaned Mine inheritance, and gave them into thy hand; thou didst show them no mercy; upon the aged hast thou very heavily laid thy yoke.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000006-QINU`"'7 And thou saidst: 'For ever shall I be mistress'; so that thou didst not lay these things to thy heart, neither didst remember the end thereof.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000007-QINU`"'8 Now therefore hear this, thou that art given to pleasures, that sittest securely, that sayest in thy heart: 'I am, and there is none else beside me; I shall not sit as a widow, neither shall I know the loss of children';

'"`UNIQ--named-00000008-QINU`"'9 But these two things shall come to thee in a moment in one day, the loss of children, and widow-hood; in their full measure shall they come upon thee, for the multitude of thy sorceries, and the great abundance of thine enchantments.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000009-QINU`"'10 And thou hast been secure in thy wickedness, thou hast said: 'None seeth me'; thy wisdom and thy knowledge, it hath perverted thee; and thou hast said in thy heart. 'I am, and there is none else beside me.'

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000A-QINU`"'11 Yet shall evil came upon thee; thou shalt not know how to charm it away; and calamity shall fall upon thee; thou shalt not be able to put it away; and ruin shall come upon thee suddenly, before thou knowest.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000B-QINU`"'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.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000C-QINU`"'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 the things that shall come upon thee.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000D-QINU`"'14 Behold, they shall be as stubble; the fire shall burn them; they shall not deliver themselves from the power of the flame; it shall not be a coal to warm at, nor a fire to sit before.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000E-QINU`"'15 Thus shall they be unto thee with whom thou hast laboured; they that have trafficked with thee from thy youth shall wander every one to his quarter; there shall be none to save thee.
