Chapter 47

Yes Word (Tyndale-Modern English)

Compare

      But as for thee ( O daughter thou virgin Babylon ) Thou shalt sit in the dust thou shall sit upon the ground, and not in a throne, ( O thou maiden of Chaldea ) Thou shalt no more be called tender and pleasant. Thou shalt bring forth that *querne and grind meal, put down thy stomacher make bear thy knees, and shalt wade through the water rivers. Thy shame shall be discovered, and thy *previties shall be seen. For I will avenge me of thee, and no man shall let me: sayeth our redeemer, which is called the Lord of Hosts, the holy one of Israel.
      Sit still, hold thy tongue, and get thee into some dark corner, O daughter Chaldea, for thou shalt no more be called lady of kingdoms. I was so wroth with my people, that I *punished mine inheritance, and give them into thy power. Nevertheless, thou showiest them no mercy, but even the very aged men of them, didest thou oppress right sore with thy yoke, and thou thoughtest thus. I shall be lady for ever. And beside all that, thou hast not regarded these things, neither cast, (camest) what should come after. Hear now therefore, thou willful, that sittest so careless, and speakest it thus in thine heart: I am alone, and without me is there none: *I shall never be widow, ner desolate again. And yet both these things shall come to thee upon one day in the twinkling of an eye: Namely widowhood, and desolation. They shall mightily fall upon thee, for the multitude of thy *witches, and for the great heap of thy *conjurers. For thou hast comforted thyself in deceitfulness, and hast said: No man seeth me. Thy own wisdom and conning has deceived thee. In that thou hast said: I am alone, and without me there is none. Therefore shall trouble come upon thee, and thou shall not know, from whence it shall arise. Mischief shall fall upon thee, which thou shalt not be able to put off. A sudden misery shall come upon thee, or ever thou be aware.
      Now go to thy conjurers, and to the multitude of thy witches ( whom thou hast been acquainted withal from thy youth ) if they may help thee, or strengthen thee. Thou hast hither to had many counsels of them, so let the heaven gazers and the beholders of stars come on now and deliver thee: yee and let them show, when these new things shall come upon thee. Behold, they shall be like straw, which if it be kindled with fire, no man may rid it for the vehemence of the flame: And yet it giveth no cinders to warm a man by, ner clear fire to sit by. Even so shall they be unto thee whom thou hast used and occupied from thy youth. Every one shall show thee his erroneous way, yet shall none of them defend thee.


*querne = hand held grain mill. *previties = secrets held between people, to cover up something . Not "private parts" as we have been told, see Genesis 3:11, when God asked Adam, "who told thee that thou wast naked"
*punished mine inheritance, (kjv and other bibles of man = polluted )
*I shall never be a widow; see Apocalypse 18. Look to the Hebrew root words for the revealing definitions of witches and conjurers. RN
