Jay P. Green's Literal Translation 1993
|47:1||Go down and sit on the dust, O virgin daughter of Babylon; sit on the earth; a throne is not to the daughter of the Chaldeans; for they shall not again call you tender and delicate.|
|47:2||Take millstones and grind meal; uncover your veil; strip off the skirt; uncover the leg; pass over rivers.|
|47:3||Your nakedness shall be uncovered; yea, your shame shall be seen. I will take vengeance and I will not meet a man.|
|47:4||Our Redeemer; Jehovah of Hosts is His name, the Holy One of Israel.|
|47:5||Sit in silence, and go into darkness, O daughter of the Chaldeans, for they shall no more call you the mistress of kingdoms.|
|47:6||I was angry with My people; I defiled My inheritance and gave them into your hand. You gave them no mercy; you made your yoke on the aged very heavy.|
|47:7||And you said, I shall be a mistress forever, until you did not set these things on your heart, and not did remember its end.|
|47:8||Now, then, hear this, O pleasure seeker, who lives carelessly; who says in her heart, I am , and none else is ; I shall not sit as a widow, nor shall I know the loss of children.|
|47:9||But these two things shall suddenly come to you, in one day: loss of children, and widowhood; as complete they come on you, for your many sorceries, for the multitude of your great spells.|
|47:10||For you trusted in your evil; you said, No one sees me. Your wisdom and your knowledge perverts you, and you said in your heart, I am and none else is .|
|47:11||For this, evil shall come on you; you shall not know its origin. And mischief shall fall on you; you shall not be able to cover it. And ruin shall come on you suddenly, you shall not know.|
|47:12||Stand now among your spells, and with your many sorceries, in which you have wearied yourself since your youth. Perhaps you will be able to profit; perhaps may cause quaking.|
|47:13||You are exhausted by your many plans; let those dividing the heavens stand up now and save you, the stargazers, making known what is coming on you into the new moons.|
|47:14||Behold, they are as stubble; the fire burns them; they shall not save their soul from the flame's hand; there is no coal to warm them; nor fire, to sit before it.|
|47:15||So they are to you with whom you have labored, your traders from your youth; each one wanders to his own way; no one saves you.|
