Isaiah 47

47:1 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
47:2 Take the millstones, and grind meal: uncover thy locks,
 make bare the leg, uncover the thigh, pass over the rivers.
47:3 Thy nakedness shall be uncovered, yes, thy shame shall be
 seen: I will take vengeance, and I will not meet [thee as] a
47:4 [As for] our Redeemer, the LORD of hosts [is] his name, the
 Holy One of Israel.
47:5 Sit thou silent, and get thee into darkness, O daughter of
 the Chaldeans: for thou shalt no more be called, The lady of
47:6 I was wroth with my people, I have polluted my inheritance,
 and given them into thy hand: thou didst show them no mercy;
 upon the ancient hast thou very heavily laid thy yoke.
47:7 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.
47:8 Therefore hear now this, [thou that art] given to
 pleasures, that dwellest carelessly, that sayest in thy heart,
 I [am], and none else besides me; I shall not sit [as] a widow,
 neither shall I know the loss of children:
47:9 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 thy enchantments.
47:10 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 thy heart, I [am], and none else
 besides me.
47:11 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.
47:12 Stand now with thy enchantments, and with the multitude of
 thy sorceries, in which thou hast labored from thy youth; if
 thou shalt be able to profit, if thou mayest prevail.
47:13 Thou art wearied in the multitude of thy counsels. Let now
 the astrologers, the star-gazers, the monthly prognosticators,
 stand up, and save thee from [these things] that shall come
 upon thee.
47:14 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.
47:15 Thus shall they be to thee with whom thou hast labored,
 [even] thy merchants, from thy youth: they shall wander every
 one to his quarter; none shall save thee.
