4 So speaks our Redeemer, who will save Israel from Babylon’s mighty power; the Lord Almighty is his name, the Holy One of Israel.

But you showed them no mercy. You have made even the old folks carry heavy burdens.Read full chapter

5 “Sit in silence,(E) go into darkness,(F)
queen city of the Babylonians;(G)
no more will you be called
queen(H) of kingdoms.(I)
6 I was angry(J) with my people
and desecrated my inheritance;(K)
I gave them into your hand,(L)
and you showed them no mercy.(M)
Even on the aged
you laid a very heavy yoke.
