Isaiah 47 (WEBP)

[1] “Come down and sit in the dust, virgin daughter of Babylon. Sit on the ground without a throne, daughter of the Chaldeans. For you will no longer be called tender and delicate.
[2] Take the millstones and grind flour. Remove your veil, lift up your skirt, uncover your legs, and wade through the rivers.
[3] Your nakedness will be uncovered. Yes, your shame will be seen. I will take vengeance, and will spare no one.”
[4] Our Redeemer, Yahweh of Armies is his name, is the Holy One of Israel.
[5] “Sit in silence, and go into darkness, daughter of the Chaldeans. For you shall no longer be called the mistress of kingdoms.
[6] I was angry with my people. I profaned my inheritance and gave them into your hand. You showed them no mercy. You laid a very heavy yoke on the aged.
[7] You said, ‘I will be a princess forever,’ so that you didn’t lay these things to your heart, nor did you remember the results.
[8] “Now therefore hear this, you who are given to pleasures, who sit securely, who say in your heart, ‘I am, and there is no one else besides me. I won’t sit as a widow, neither will I know the loss of children.’
[9] But these two things will come to you in a moment in one day: the loss of children and widowhood. They will come on you in their full measure, in the multitude of your sorceries, and the great abundance of your enchantments.
[10] For you have trusted in your wickedness. You have said, ‘No one sees me.’ Your wisdom and your knowledge has perverted you. You have said in your heart, ‘I am, and there is no one else besides me.’
[11] Therefore disaster will come on you. You won’t know when it dawns. Mischief will fall on you. You won’t be able to put it away. Desolation will come on you suddenly, which you don’t understand.
[12] “Stand now with your enchantments and with the multitude of your sorceries, in which you have labored from your youth, as if you might profit, as if you might prevail.
[13] You are wearied in the multitude of your counsels. Now let the astrologers, the stargazers, and the monthly prognosticators stand up and save you from the things that will happen to you.
[14] Behold, they are like stubble. The fire will burn them. They won’t deliver themselves from the power of the flame. It won’t be a coal to warm at or a fire to sit by.
[15] The things that you labored in will be like this: those who have trafficked with you from your youth will each wander in his own way. There will be no one to save you.

King James w/Strong’s #s

Isaiah 47 (KJVS)

[1] Come down H3381 (8798), and sit H3427 (8798) in the dust H6083, O virgin H1330 daughter H1323 of Babylon H894, sit H3427 (8798) on the ground H776: [there is] no throne H3678, O daughter H1323 of the Chaldeans H3778: for thou shalt no more H3254 (8686) be called H7121 (8799) tender H7390 and delicate H6028.
[2] Take H3947 (8798) the millstones H7347, and grind H2912 (8798) meal H7058: uncover H1540 (8761) thy locks H6777, make bare H2834 (8798) the leg H7640, uncover H1540 (8761) the thigh H7785, pass over H5674 (8798) the rivers H5104.
[3] Thy nakedness H6172 shall be uncovered H1540 (8735), yea, thy shame H2781 shall be seen H7200 (8735): I will take H3947 (8799) vengeance H5359, and I will not meet H6293 (8799) [thee as] a man H120.
[4] [As for] our redeemer H1350 (8802), the LORD H3068 of hosts H6635 [is] his name H8034, the Holy One H6918 of Israel H3478.
[5] Sit H3427 (8798) thou silent H1748, and get H935 (8798) thee into darkness H2822, O daughter H1323 of the Chaldeans H3778: for thou shalt no more H3254 (8686) be called H7121 (8799), The lady H1404 of kingdoms H4467.
[6] I was wroth H7107 (8804) with my people H5971, I have polluted H2490 (8765) mine inheritance H5159, and given H5414 (8799) them into thine hand H3027: thou didst shew H7760 (8804) them no mercy H7356; upon the ancient H2205 hast thou very H3966 heavily H3513 (8689) laid thy yoke H5923.
[7] And thou saidst H559 (8799), I shall be a lady H1404 for ever H5769: [so] that thou didst not lay H7760 (8804) these [things] to thy heart H3820, neither didst remember H2142 (8804) the latter end H319 of it.
[8] Therefore hear H8085 (8798) now this, [thou that art] given to pleasures H5719, that dwellest H3427 (8802) carelessly H983, that sayest H559 (8802) in thine heart H3824, I [am], and none else H657 beside me; I shall not sit H3427 (8799) [as] a widow H490, neither shall I know H3045 (8799) the loss of children H7908:
[9] But these two H8147 [things] shall come H935 (8799) to thee in a moment H7281 in one H259 day H3117, the loss of children H7908, and widowhood H489: they shall come H935 (8804) upon thee in their perfection H8537 for the multitude H7230 of thy sorceries H3785, [and] for the great H3966 abundance H6109 of thine enchantments H2267.
[10] For thou hast trusted H982 (8799) in thy wickedness H7451: thou hast said H559 (8804), None seeth H7200 (8802) me. Thy wisdom H2451 and thy knowledge H1847, it hath perverted H7725 (8790) thee; and thou hast said H559 (8799) in thine heart H3820, I [am], and none else H657 beside me.
[11] Therefore shall evil H7451 come H935 (8804) upon thee; thou shalt not know H3045 (8799) from whence it riseth H7837: and mischief H1943 shall fall H5307 (8799) upon thee; thou shalt not be able H3201 (8799) to put it off H3722 (8763): and desolation H7722 shall come H935 (8799) upon thee suddenly H6597, [which] thou shalt not know H3045 (8799).
[12] Stand H5975 (8798) now with thine enchantments H2267, and with the multitude H7230 of thy sorceries H3785, wherein H834 thou hast laboured H3021 (8804) from thy youth H5271; if so be thou shalt be able H3201 (8799) to profit H3276 (8687), if so be thou mayest prevail H6206 (8799).
[13] Thou art wearied H3811 (8738) in the multitude H7230 of thy counsels H6098. Let now the astrologers H1895 (8802) H8064, the stargazers H2374 H3556, the monthly H2320 prognosticators H3045 (8688), stand up H5975 (8799), and save H3467 (8686) thee from [these things] that shall come H935 (8799) upon thee.
[14] Behold, they shall be as stubble H7179; the fire H784 shall burn H8313 (8804) them; they shall not deliver H5337 (8686) themselves H5315 from the power H3027 of the flame H3852: [there shall] not [be] a coal H1513 to warm H2552 (8800) at, [nor] fire H217 to sit H3427 (8800) before it.
[15] Thus shall they be unto thee with whom thou hast laboured H3021 (8804), [even] thy merchants H5503 (8802), from thy youth H5271: they shall wander H8582 (8804) every one H376 to his quarter H5676; none shall save H3467 (8688) thee.

Young’s Literal Translation

Isaiah 47 (YLT)

[1] Come down, and sit on the dust, O virgin daughter of Babylon, Sit on the earth, there is no throne, O daughter of the Chaldeans, For no more do they cry to thee, ‘O tender and delicate one.’
[2] Take millstones, and grind flour, Remove thy veil, draw up the skirt, Uncover the leg, pass over the floods.
[3] Revealed is thy nakedness, yea, seen is thy reproach, Vengeance I take, and I meet not a man.
[4] Our redeemer is Jehovah of Hosts, His name is the Holy One of Israel.
[5] Sit silent, and go into darkness, O daughter of the Chaldeans, For no more do they cry to thee, ‘Mistress of kingdoms.’
[6] I have been wroth against My people, I have polluted Mine inheritance And I give them into thy hand, Thou hast not appointed for them mercies, On the aged thou hast made thy yoke very heavy,
[7] And thou sayest, ‘To the age I am mistress,’ While thou hast not laid these things to thy heart, Thou hast not remembered the latter end of it.
[8] And now, hear this, O luxurious one, Who is sitting confidently- Who is saying in her heart, ‘I am, and none else, I sit not a widow, nor know bereavement.’
[9] And come in to thee do these two things, In a moment, in one day, childlessness and widowhood, According to their perfection they have come upon thee, In the multitude of thy sorceries, In the exceeding might of thy charms.
[10] And thou art confident in thy wickedness, Thou hast said, ‘There is none seeing me,’ Thy wisdom and thy knowledge, It is turning thee back, And thou sayest in thy heart, ‘I am, and none else.’
[11] And come in on thee hath evil, Thou knowest not its rising, And fall on thee doth mischief, Thou art not able to pacify it, And come on thee suddenly doth desolation, Thou knowest not.
[12] Stand, I pray thee, in thy charms, And in the multitude of thy sorceries, In which thou hast laboured from thy youth, It may be thou art able to profit, It may be thou dost terrify!
[13] Thou hast been wearied in the multitude of thy counsels, Stand up, I pray thee, and save thee, Let the charmers of the heavens, Those looking on the stars, Those teaching concerning the months, From those things that come on thee!
[14] Lo, they have been as stubble! Fire hath burned them, They deliver not themselves from the power of the flame, There is not a coal to warm them, a light to sit before it.
[15] So have they been to thee with whom thou hast laboured, Thy merchants from thy youth, Each to his passage they have wandered, Thy saviour is not!
