Come down, and sit in the dust, O virgin daughter of Babylon, sit on the
ground: there is no throne, O daughter of the Chaldeans: for thou shalt no
more be called tender and delicate.||
Take the millstones, and grind meal: uncover thy locks, make bare the leg,
uncover the thigh, pass over the rivers.||
(47:2-3) "Make bare the leg,
uncover the thigh ... Thy nakedness shall be uncovered."
Thy nakedness shall be uncovered, yea, thy shame shall be seen: I will
take vengeance, and I will not meet thee as a man.
As for our redeemer, the LORD of hosts is his name, the Holy One of
Sit thou silent, and get thee into darkness, O daughter of the Chaldeans:
for thou shalt no more be called, The lady of kingdoms.||
I was wroth with my people, I have polluted mine inheritance, and given
them into thine hand: thou didst shew them no mercy; upon the ancient hast
thou very heavily laid thy yoke.||
And thou saidst, I shall be a lady for ever: so that thou didst not lay
these things to thy heart, neither didst remember the latter end of it.||
Therefore hear now this, thou that art given to pleasures, that dwellest
carelessly, that sayest in thine heart, I am, and none else beside me; I
shall not sit as a widow, neither shall I know the loss of children:||
But these two things shall come to thee in a moment in one day, the loss
of children, and widowhood: they shall come upon thee in their perfection

For thou hast trusted in thy wickedness: thou hast said, None seeth me.
Thy wisdom and thy knowledge, it hath perverted thee; and thou hast said in
thine heart, I am, and none else beside me.||
Therefore shall evil come upon thee; thou shalt not know from whence it

thee from these things that shall come upon thee.||
No astrologer, stargazer, or prognosticator will be able to

What the Bible says about burning people to death
Does the bible condemn astrology?
(47:14) "Let now the astrologers, the stargazers, the monthly prognosticators,
stand up, and save thee from these things that shall come upon thee."
(47:15) "Behold, they shall be as stubble; the fire shall burn them; they shall not deliver themselves from the power of the flame."
Behold, they shall be as 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 fire to sit before it.
Thus shall they be unto thee with whom thou hast laboured, even thy
merchants, from thy youth: they shall wander every one to his quarter; none
shall save thee.
