Chapter 15 50 And the glory of thy Power shall be dried up as a flower, the heat shall arise that is sent over thee.51 Thou shalt be weakened as a poor woman with stripes, and as one chastised with wounds, so that the mighty and lovers shall not be able to receive thee.52 Would I with jealousy have so proceeded against thee, saith the Lord,53 If thou hadst not always slain my chosen, exalting the stroke of thine hands, and saying over their dead, when thou wast drunken,54 Set forth the beauty of thy countenance?55 The reward of thy whoredom shall be in thy bosom, therefore shalt thou receive recompence.56 Like as thou hast done unto my chosen, saith the Lord, even so shall God do unto thee, and shall deliver thee into mischief57 Thy children shall die of hunger, and thou shalt fall through the sword: thy cities shall be broken down, and all thine shall perish with the sword in the field.58 They that be in the mountains shall die of hunger, and eat their own flesh, and drink their own blood, for very hunger of bread, and thirst of water.59 Thou as unhappy shalt come through the sea, and receive plagues again.60 And in the passage they shall rush on the idle city, and shall destroy some portion of thy land, and consume part of thy glory, and shall return to Babylon that was destroyed.61 And thou shalt be cast down by them as stubble, and they shall be unto thee as fire;62 And shall consume thee, and thy cities, thy land, and thy mountains; all thy woods and thy fruitful trees shall they burn up with fire.63 Thy children shall they carry away captive, and, look, what thou hast, they shall spoil it, and mar the beauty of thy face.

Chapter 16 1 Woe be unto thee, Babylon, and Asia! woe be unto thee, Egypt and Syria!2 Gird up yourselves with cloths of sack and hair, bewail your children, and be sorry; for your destruction is at hand.3 A sword is sent upon you, and who may turn it back?4 A fire is sent among you, and who may quench it?5 Plagues are sent unto you, and what is he that may drive them away?6 May any man drive away an hungry lion in the wood? or may any one quench the fire in stubble, when it hath begun to burn?7 May one turn again the arrow that is shot of a strong archer?8 The mighty Lord sendeth the plagues and who is he that can drive them away?9 A fire shall go forth from his wrath, and who is he that may quench it?
