eO daughter of the Chaldeans:
For thou shalt no more be called ftender and delicate.
Uncover thy ilocks, make bare the leg,
kUncover the thigh, pass over the rivers.
3 kThy nakedness shall be uncovered, yea, thy shame shall be seen:
nThe Holy One of Israel.
And given them into thine hand:
Thou didst shew them no mercy;
vUpon the ancient hast thou very heavily laid thy yoke.
So that thou didst not xlay these things to thy heart,
Neither didst remember ythe latter end of it.
8 Therefore hear now this, thou that art given to pleasures, zthat dwellest carelessly,
dThe loss of children, and widowhood:
They shall come upon thee in their perfection
And athou hast said in thine heart, I am, and none else beside me.
11 Therefore shall evil come upon thee; thou shalt not know †from whence it riseth:
Wherein sthou hast laboured from thy youth;
If so be thou shalt be able to profit, if so be thou mayest rprevail.
13 sThou art wearied in the multitude of thy counsels.
Stand up, and save thee from these things that shall come upon thee.
14 Behold, they shall be uas stubble; the fire shall burn them;
They shall not deliver †themselves from the power of the flame:
There shall not be a coal to warm at, nor vfire to sit before it.
15 Thus shall they be unto thee with whom thou hast laboured, even wthy merchants, from thy youth:
They shall wander every one to his quarter; none shall save thee.
