HowH349 does the cityH5892 sitH3427 solitary,H910 that was fullH7227 of people!H5971 how is she becomeH1961 as a widow!H490 she that was greatH7227 among the nations,H1471 and princessH8282 among the provinces,H4082 how is she becomeH1961 tributary!H4522
She weepsH1058 sore in the night,H3915 and her tearsH1832 are onH5921 her cheeks:H3895 among allH3605 her loversH157 she has noneH369 to comfortH5162 her: allH3605 her friendsH7453 have dealt treacherouslyH898 with her, they are becomeH1961 her enemies.H341
JudahH3063 is gone intoH1473 captivityH1540 because of affliction,H6040 and because of greatH7230 servitude:H5656 she dwellsH3427 among the heathen,H1471 she findsH4672 noH3808 rest:H4494 allH3605 her persecutorsH7291 overtookH5381 her betweenH996 the straits.H4712
The waysH1870 of ZionH6726 do mourn,H57 because noneH1097 comeH935 to the solemnH4150 feasts:H4150 allH3605 her gatesH8179 are desolate:H8076 her priestsH3548 sigh,H584 her virginsH1330 are afflicted,H3013 and she is in bitterness.H4843
Her adversariesH6862 are the chief,H7218 her enemiesH341 prosper;H7951 for the LORDH3068 has afflictedH3013 her for the multitudeH7230 of her transgressions:H6588 her childrenH5768 are goneH1980 into captivityH7628 beforeH6440 the enemy.H6862
And from the daughterH1323 of ZionH6726 allH3605 her beautyH1926 is departed:H3318 her princesH8269 are becomeH1961 like hartsH354 that findH4672 noH3808 pasture,H4829 and they are goneH3212 withoutH3808 strengthH3581 beforeH6440 the pursuer.H7291
JerusalemH3389 rememberedH2142 in the daysH3117 of her afflictionH6040 and of her miseriesH4788 allH3605 her pleasantH4262 things that she hadH1961 in the daysH3117 of old,H6924 when her peopleH5971 fellH5307 into the handH3027 of the enemy,H6862 and noneH369 did helpH5826 her: the adversariesH6862 sawH7200 her, and did mockH7832 atH5921 her sabbaths.H4868
JerusalemH3389 has grievouslyH2399 sinned;H2398 thereforeH5921 H3651 she is removed:H5206 allH3605 that honoredH3513 her despiseH2107 her, becauseH3588 they have seenH7200 her nakedness:H6172 yes,H1571 she sighs,H584 and turnsH7725 backward.H268
Her filthinessH2932 is in her skirts;H7757 she remembersH2142 not her lastH319 end; therefore she cameH3381 downH3381 wonderfully:H6382 she had noH369 comforter.H5162 O LORD,H3068 beholdH7200 my affliction:H6040 for the enemyH341 has magnifiedH1431 himself.
The adversaryH6862 has spreadH6566 out his handH3027 on allH3605 her pleasantH4261 things: for she has seenH7200 that the heathenH1471 enteredH935 into her sanctuary,H4720 whomH834 you did commandH6680 that they should not enterH935 into your congregation.H6951
AllH3605 her peopleH5971 sigh,H584 they seekH1245 bread;H3899 they have givenH5414 their pleasantH4262 things for meatH400 to relieveH7725 the soul:H5315 see,H7200 O LORD,H3068 and consider;H5027 for I am becomeH1961 vile.H2151
Is it nothingH3808 to you, allH3605 you that passH5674 by? behold,H5027 and seeH7200 ifH518 there be any sorrowH4341 like to my sorrow,H4341 whichH834 is doneH5953 to me, with whichH834 the LORDH3068 has afflictedH3013 me in the dayH3117 of his fierceH2740 anger.H639
From aboveH4791 has he sentH7971 fireH784 into my bones,H6106 and it prevailsH7287 against them: he has spreadH6566 a netH7568 for my feet,H7272 he has turnedH7725 me back:H268 he has madeH5414 me desolateH8076 and faintH1739 allH3605 the day.H3117
The yokeH5923 of my transgressionsH6588 is boundH8244 by his hand:H3027 they are wreathed,H8276 and comeH5927 up on my neck:H6677 he has made my strengthH3581 to fall,H3782 the LORDH136 has deliveredH5414 me into their hands,H3027 from whom I am not ableH3201 to riseH6965 up.
The LORDH136 has troddenH5541 under footH5541 allH3605 my mightyH47 men in the middleH7130 of me: he has calledH7121 an assemblyH4150 againstH5921 me to crushH7665 my youngH970 men: the LORDH136 has troddenH1869 the virgin,H1330 the daughterH1323 of Judah,H3063 as in a wine press.H1660
For theseH428 things I weep;H1058 my eye,H5869 my eyeH5869 runsH3381 down with water,H4325 becauseH3588 the comforterH5162 that should relieveH7725 my soulH5315 is farH7368 from me: my childrenH1121 are desolate,H8076 becauseH3588 the enemyH341 prevailed.H1396
ZionH6726 spreadsH6566 forth her hands,H3027 and there is noneH369 to comfortH5162 her: the LORDH3068 has commandedH6680 concerning Jacob,H3290 that his adversariesH6862 should be roundH5439 about him: JerusalemH3389 is as a menstruousH5079 woman amongH996 them.
The LORDH3068 is righteous;H6662 for I have rebelledH4784 against his commandment:H6310 hear,H8085 I prayH4994 you, allH3605 people,H5971 and beholdH7200 my sorrow:H4341 my virginsH1330 and my youngH970 men are goneH1980 into captivity.H7628
I calledH7121 for my lovers,H157 but they deceivedH7411 me: my priestsH3548 and my eldersH2205 gave up the ghostH1478 in the city,H5892 whileH3588 they soughtH1245 their meatH400 to relieveH7725 their souls.H5315
Behold,H7200 O LORD;H3068 for I am in distress:H6887 my bowelsH4578 are troubled;H2560 my heartH3820 is turnedH2015 withinH7130 me; for I have grievouslyH4784 rebelled:H4784 abroadH2351 the swordH2719 bereaves,H7921 at homeH1004 there is as death.H4194
They have heardH8085 that I sigh:H584 there is noneH369 to comfortH5162 me: allH3605 my enemiesH341 have heardH8085 of my trouble;H7451 they are gladH7797 that you have doneH6213 it: you will bringH935 the dayH3117 that you have called,H7121 and they shall be likeH3644 to me.
Let allH3605 their wickednessH7451 comeH935 beforeH6440 you; and doH5953 to them, as you have doneH5953 to me for allH3605 my transgressions:H6588 for my sighsH585 are many,H7227 and my heartH3820 is faint.H1742
