Isaiah 47
Peshitta Holy Bible Translated Par ▾ 
1Come down and dwell on the dust, virgin daughter of Babel! Dwell on the land, daughter of the Chaldeans! There is no throne, because they will not continue to call you delicate and luxurious

2Take a millstone, grind flour, open your veil, cut your white hair, reveal your lower legs, pass over the rivers

3Your nakedness shall be revealed and your shame will be seen; I shall take redemption from you and I shall not meet a man among you

4Our Savior, LORD JEHOVAH of Hosts is his Name, The Holy One of Israel

5Dwell in confusion, enter into darkness, daughter of the Chaldeans, because they will not continue to call you mightiest of the kingdoms

6I was angry with my people, for they polluted my inheritance, and I delivered them into your hands, and you have not performed upon them mercy, and you have made your yoke very hard upon the Elders

7And you said: “Forever I shall be The Mighty One”, and you do not put these things to your heart, and you have not been mindful of the end

8Now, hear these things, delicate one who dwells in quietness and says in her heart: “I AM THE LIVING GOD and there is none other. I shall not sit a widow, and I shall not know bereavement"

9These two plagues will come upon you in one day: bereavement and widowhood suddenly will come upon you in the multitude of your sorceries and in the abundance of your Magicians

10For you have trusted on your evil and you said: “There is none who sees me.” Your wisdom and this your knowledge has deceived you, and you said in your heart, "I AM THE LIVING GOD and there is none other"

11Evil shall come upon you at dawn and you shall not know, and alarm shall fall upon you and you shall not be able to remove it, and trouble shall come upon you suddenly, and you shall not know

12Arise now with your Magicians and in your many sorceries in which you labored from your youth. Perhaps you shall find fullness; perhaps you shall be strengthened

13You are fatigued in the multitude of your schemes. Let them arise; let the Chaldeans who gaze into Heaven and into the stars save you, and know for yourselves by the moon what comes upon you

14Behold, they have been as chips which the fire has burned, and they shall not save their soul from the hand of the flame. There are no coals for their fire, neither brightness sitting next to it

15In this way they have been to you your Merchants with whom you labored from your youth, and they have gone astray, each man, beside himself, and there is none who saves you
