    SEV Biblia, Chapter 47:2

    Toma el molino, y muele harina; descubre tus guedejas, descalza los pies, descubre las piernas, pasa los ríos.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Isaiah 47:2

    Verse 2. Take the millstones, and
    grind meal "Take the mill, and grind corn"] It was the work of slaves to grind the corn. They used hand-raills: water-mills were not invented till a little before the time of Augustus, (see the Greek epigram of Antipater, which seems to celebrate it as a new invention, Anthol. Cephalae, 653;) wind-mills, not until long after. It was not only the work of slaves, but the hardest work; and often inflicted upon them as a severe punishment:- Molendum in pistrino; vapulandum; habendae compedes. TERENT. Phorm. ii. 1. 19.

    Hominem pistrino dignum.

    Id. Heaut. iii. 2. 19.

    To grind in the mill, to be scourged, to be put in the stocks, were punishments for slaves. Hence a delinquent was said to be a man worthy of the mill. The tread-mill, now in use in England, is a revival of this ancient usage. But in the east grinding was the work of the female slaves. See Exod. xi. 5; xii. 29, (in the version of the Septuagint;} Matt. xxiv. 41; Homer, Odyss. xx. 105-108. And it is the same to this day.

    "Women alone are employed to grind their corn; " Shaw's Algiers and Tunis, p. 287. "They are the female slaves, that are generally employed in the east at those hand-mills for grinding corn; it is extremely labourious, and esteemed the lowest employment in the house; " Sir J. Chardin, Harmer's Observ. i., p. 153. The words denote that state of captivity to which the Babylonians should be reduced.

    Make bare the leg, uncover the thigh] This is repeatedly seen in Bengal, where theI e are few bridges, and both sexes, having neither shoes nor stockings, truss up their loose garments, and walk across, where the waters are not deep. In the deeper water they are obliged to truss very high, to which there seems a reference in the third verse: Thy nakedness shall be uncovered.


    Matthew Henry Commentary
    God's judgments on Babylon. (Is. 47:1-6) Carelessness and confidenc shall not prevent the evil. (Is. 47:7-15)

    Is. 47:1-6 Babylon is represented under the emblem of a female in dee distress. She was to be degraded and endure sufferings; and i represented sitting on the ground, grinding at the handmill, the lowes and most laborious service. God was righteous in his vengeance, an none should interpose. The prophet exults in the Lord of hosts, as the Redeemer and Holy One of Israel. God often permits wicked men to prevail against his people; but those who cruelly oppress them will be punished.

    Is. 47:7-15 Let us beware of acting and speaking as Babylon did; of trusting in tyranny and oppression; of boasting as to our abilities relying on ourselves, and ascribing success to our own prudence an wisdom; lest we partake of her plagues. Those in the height of prosperity, are apt to fancy themselves out of the reach of adversity It is also common for sinners to think they shall be safe, because the think to be secret in wicked ways. But their security shall be their ruin. Let us draw from such passages as the foregoing, those lessons of humility and trust in God which they convey. If we believe the word of God, we may know how it will be with the righteous and the wicked to all eternity. We may learn how to escape the wrath to come, to glorif God, to have peace through life, hope in death, and everlastin happiness. Let us then stand aloof from all delusions __________________________________________________________________
