Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 47:3 - Let your private parts be exposed! Your genitals will be on display! I will get revenge; I will not have pity on anyone,"

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 47:7 - You said, 'I will rule forever as permanent queen!' You did not think about these things; you did not consider how it would turn out.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 47:8 - So now, listen to this, O one who lives so lavishly, who lives securely, who says to herself, 'I am unique! No one can compare to me! I will never have to live as a widow; I will never lose my children.'

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 47:11 - Disaster will overtake you; you will not know how to charm it away. Destruction will fall on you; you will not be able to appease it. Calamity will strike you suddenly, before you recognize it.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 47:12 - Persist in trusting your amulets and your many incantations, which you have faithfully recited since your youth! Maybe you will be successful - maybe you will scare away disaster.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 47:13 - You are tired out from listening to so much advice. Let them take their stand - the ones who see omens in the sky, who gaze at the stars, who make monthly predictions - let them rescue you from the disaster that is about to overtake you!

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 47:14 - Look, they are like straw, which the fire burns up; they cannot rescue themselves from the heat of the flames. There are no coals to warm them, no firelight to enjoy.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 47:15 - They will disappoint you, those you have so faithfully dealt with since your youth. Each strays off in his own direction, leaving no one to rescue you."
