Lamentations 4

How is the gold
<02091>
become dim
<06004> (8714)_!
[how] is the most
<02896>
fine gold
<03800>
changed
<08132> (8799)_!
the stones
<068>
of the sanctuary
<06944>
are poured out
<08210> (8691)
in the top
<07218>
of every street
<02351>_.
The precious
<03368>
sons
<01121>
of Zion
<06726>_,
comparable
<05537> (8794)
to fine gold
<06337>_,
how are they esteemed
<02803> (8738)
as earthen
<02789>
pitchers
<05035>_,
the work
<04639>
of the hands
<03027>
of the potter
<03335> (8802)_!
Even the sea monsters
<08577>
draw out
<02502> (8804)
the breast
<07699>_,
they give suck
<03243> (8689)
to their young ones
<01482>_:
the daughter
<01323>
of my people
<05971>
[is become] cruel
<0393>_,
like the ostriches
<03283>
in the wilderness
<04057>_.
{sea...: or, sea calves}
The tongue
<03956>
of the sucking child
<03243> (8802)
cleaveth
<01692> (8804)
to the roof of his mouth
<02441>
for thirst
<06772>_:
the young children
<05768>
ask
<07592> (8804)
bread
<03899>_,
[and] no man breaketh
<06566> (8802)
[it] unto them.
They that did feed
<0398> (8802)
delicately
<04574>
are desolate
<08074> (8738)
in the streets
<02351>_:
they that were brought up
<0539> (8803)
in scarlet
<08438>
embrace
<02263> (8765)
dunghills
<0830>_.
For the punishment of the iniquity
<05771>
of the daughter
<01323>
of my people
<05971>
is greater
<01431> (8799)
than the punishment
<02403>
of the sin of Sodom
<05467>_,
that was overthrown
<02015> (8803)
as in a moment
<07281>_,
and no hands
<03027>
stayed
<02342> (8804)
on her. {punishment of the iniquity: or, iniquity}
Her Nazarites
<05139>
were purer
<02141> (8804)
than snow
<07950>_,
they were whiter
<06705> (8804)
than milk
<02461>_,
they were more ruddy
<0119> (8804)
in body
<06106>
than rubies
<06443>_,
their polishing
<01508>
[was] of sapphire
<05601>_:
Their visage
<08389>
is blacker
<02821> (8804)
than a coal
<07815>_;
they are not known
<05234> (8738)
in the streets
<02351>_:
their skin
<05785>
cleaveth
<06821> (8804)
to their bones
<06106>_;
it is withered
<03001> (8804)_,
it is become like a stick
<06086>_.
{blacker...: Heb. darker than blackness}
[They that be] slain
<02491>
with the sword
<02719>
are better
<02896>
than [they that be] slain
<02491>
with hunger
<07458>_:
for these
<01992>
pine away
<02100> (8799)_,
stricken
<01856> (8794)
through for [want of] the fruits
<08570>
of the field
<07704>_.
{pine...: Heb. flow out}
The hands
<03027>
of the pitiful
<07362>
women
<0802>
have sodden
<01310> (8765)
their own children
<03206>_:
they were their meat
<01262> (8763)
in the destruction
<07667>
of the daughter
<01323>
of my people
<05971>_.
The LORD
<03068>
hath accomplished
<03615> (8765)
his fury
<02534>_;
he hath poured out
<08210> (8804)
his fierce
<02740>
anger
<0639>_,
and hath kindled
<03341> (8686)
a fire
<0784>
in Zion
<06726>_,
and it hath devoured
<0398> (8799)
the foundations
<03247>
thereof.
The kings
<04428>
of the earth
<0776>_,
and all the inhabitants
<03427> (8802)
of the world
<08398>_,
would not have believed
<0539> (8689)
that the adversary
<06862>
and the enemy
<0341> (8802)
should have entered
<0935> (8799)
into the gates
<08179>
of Jerusalem
<03389>_.
For the sins
<02403>
of her prophets
<05030>_,
[and] the iniquities
<05771>
of her priests
<03548>_,
that have shed
<08210> (8802)
the blood
<01818>
of the just
<06662>
in the midst
<07130>
of her,
They have wandered
<05128> (8804)
[as] blind
<05787>
[men] in the streets
<02351>_,
they have polluted
<01351> (8738)
themselves with blood
<01818>_,
so that men could
<03201> (8799)
not
<03808>
touch
<05060> (8799)
their garments
<03830>_.
{so...: or, in that they could not but touch}
They cried
<07121> (8804)
unto them, Depart
<05493> (8798)
ye; [it is] unclean
<02931>_;
depart
<05493> (8798)_,
depart
<05493> (8798)_,
touch
<05060> (8799)
not: when they fled away
<05132> (8804)
and wandered
<05128> (8804)_,
they said
<0559> (8804)
among the heathen
<01471>_,
They shall no more
<03254> (8686)
sojourn
<01481> (8800)
[there]. {it...: or, ye polluted}
The anger
<06440>
of the LORD
<03068>
hath divided
<02505> (8765)
them; he will no more
<03254> (8686)
regard
<05027> (8687)
them: they respected
<05375> (8804)
not the persons
<06440>
of the priests
<03548>_,
they favoured
<02603> (8804)
not the elders
<02205>_.
{anger: or, face}
As for us, our eyes
<05869>
as yet failed
<03615> (8799)
for our vain
<01892>
help
<05833>_:
in our watching
<06836>
we have watched
<06822> (8765)
for a nation
<01471>
[that] could not save
<03467> (8686)
[us].
They hunt
<06679> (8804)
our steps
<06806>_,
that we cannot go
<03212> (8800)
in our streets
<07339>_:
our end
<07093>
is near
<07126> (8804)_,
our days
<03117>
are fulfilled
<04390> (8804)_;
for our end
<07093>
is come
<0935> (8804)_.
Our persecutors
<07291> (8802)
are swifter
<07031>
than the eagles
<05404>
of the heaven
<08064>_:
they pursued
<01814> (8804)
us upon the mountains
<02022>_,
they laid wait
<0693> (8804)
for us in the wilderness
<04057>_.
The breath
<07307>
of our nostrils
<0639>_,
the anointed
<04899>
of the LORD
<03068>_,
was taken
<03920> (8738)
in their pits
<07825>_,
of whom we said
<0559> (8804)_,
Under his shadow
<06738>
we shall live
<02421> (8799)
among the heathen
<01471>_.
Rejoice
<07797> (8798)
and be glad
<08055> (8798)_,
O daughter
<01323>
of Edom
<0123>_,
that dwellest
<03427> (8802)
in the land
<0776>
of Uz
<05780>_;
the cup
<03563>
also shall pass
<05674> (8799)
through unto thee: thou shalt be drunken
<07937> (8799)_,
and shalt make thyself naked
<06168> (8691)_.
The punishment of thine iniquity
<05771>
is accomplished
<08552> (8804)_,
O daughter
<01323>
of Zion
<06726>_;
he will no more
<03254> (8686)
carry thee away into captivity
<01540> (8687)_:
he will visit
<06485> (8804)
thine iniquity
<05771>_,
O daughter
<01323>
of Edom
<0123>_;
he will discover
<01540> (8765)
thy sins
<02403>_.
{The...: or, Thine iniquity} {discover...: or, carry thee captive for thy sins}
