Isaiah 47:1-7

Isaiah 47:1-7 GNTD

The LORD says, “Babylon, come down from your throne, and sit in the dust on the ground. You were once like a virgin, a city unconquered, but you are soft and delicate no longer! You are now a slave! Turn the millstone! Grind the flour! Off with your veil! Strip off your fine clothes! Lift up your skirts to cross the streams! People will see you naked; they will see you humbled and shamed. I will take vengeance, and no one will stop me.” The holy God of Israel sets us free— his name is the LORD Almighty. The LORD says to Babylon, “Sit in silence and darkness; no more will they call you the queen of nations! I was angry with my people; I treated them as no longer mine: I put them in your power, and you showed them no mercy; even the aged you treated harshly. You thought you would always be a queen, and did not take these things to heart or think how it all would end.
