Isaiah 47

Previous chapter Index Next chapter
1 Go down and sit down to dust, damsel, daughter of Babylon; Sit on the ground: there is no throne, daughter of the Chaldeans, and they will not call you tender and luxurious in advance.
2 Take the millstones and grind the flour; remove your coverlet, pick up the hem, open your shins, cross the rivers:
3 your nakedness will be revealed, and even your shame will be visible. I will take vengeance and will not spare anyone.
4 Our Redeemer is the Lord of hosts, His name is the Holy One of Israel.
5 Sit silently and go into the darkness, daughter of the Chaldeans: for they will not call you the mistress of the kingdoms ahead.
6 I was angry with My people, destroyed My inheritance, and delivered them into your hands; [a] you did not show them mercy, you imposed your extremely heavy yoke on the elder.

7 And you said: `I will always be mistress, 'but did not imagine that in your mind, did not think what would happen after.
eight But now listen to this, pampered, living blithely, saying in her heart: `` I - and there is no other like me; I will not sit as a widow and I will not know the loss of children. ”
nine But suddenly, one day, one and the other will come to you, loss of children and widowhood; they will come fully to you, in spite of your many sorceries and the great power of your magic.
ten For you hoped for your evil, said: `no one sees me. ' Thy wisdom and thy knowledge - they have led you astray; and you said in your heart: "I, and no one except me."
eleven And disaster will come upon you: you will not know where it will rise; and a misfortune will attack you that you will not be able to avert, and suddenly a disaster will come upon you that you don’t even think about.
12 Remain with your sorceries and with the many sorceries of yours that you dealt with from your youth: maybe you can help yourself, maybe you can resist.
13 You are weary of many of your advice; let the observers of the heavens and the stargazers and the forerunners of the new moons come forth and save you from what should happen to you.
fourteen Here they are, like straw: the fire burned them; they did not deliver their souls from the flame; there was no coal left to warm, nor fire to sit in front of him.
fifteen Those became for you those with whom you worked, with whom you traded from your youth. Each wandered in his own direction; no one is saving you.
