Lamentations 1:1--4:22

How doth the city
<05892>
sit
<03427> (8804)
solitary
<0910>_,
[that was] full
<07227>
of people
<05971>_!
[how] is she become as a widow
<0490>_!
she [that was] great
<07227>
among the nations
<01471>_,
[and] princess
<08282>
among the provinces
<04082>_,
[how] is she become tributary
<04522>_!
She weepeth
<01058> (8799)
sore
<01058> (8800)
in the night
<03915>_,
and her tears
<01832>
[are] on her cheeks
<03895>_:
among all her lovers
<0157> (8802)
she hath none to comfort
<05162> (8764)
[her]: all her friends
<07453>
have dealt treacherously
<0898> (8804)
with her, they are become her enemies
<0341> (8802)_.
Judah
<03063>
is gone into captivity
<01540> (8804)
because of affliction
<06040>_,
and because of great
<07230>
servitude
<05656>_:
she dwelleth
<03427> (8804)
among the heathen
<01471>_,
she findeth
<04672> (8804)
no rest
<04494>_:
all her persecutors
<07291> (8802)
overtook
<05381> (8689)
her between the straits
<04712>_.
{because of great...: Heb. for the greatness of servitude}
The ways
<01870>
of Zion
<06726>
do mourn
<057>_,
because none come
<0935> (8802)
to the solemn feasts
<04150>_:
all her gates
<08179>
are desolate
<08074> (8802)_:
her priests
<03548>
sigh
<0584> (8737)_,
her virgins
<01330>
are afflicted
<03013> (8737)_,
and she [is] in bitterness
<04843> (8804)_.
Her adversaries
<06862>
are the chief
<07218>_,
her enemies
<0341> (8802)
prosper
<07951> (8804)_;
for the LORD
<03068>
hath afflicted
<03013> (8689)
her for the multitude
<07230>
of her transgressions
<06588>_:
her children
<05768>
are gone
<01980> (8804)
into captivity
<07628>
before
<06440>
the enemy
<06862>_.
And from the daughter
<01323>
of Zion
<06726>
all her beauty
<01926>
is departed
<03318> (8799)_:
her princes
<08269>
are become like harts
<0354>
[that] find
<04672> (8804)
no pasture
<04829>_,
and they are gone
<03212> (8799)
without strength
<03581>
before
<06440>
the pursuer
<07291> (8802)_.
Jerusalem
<03389>
remembered
<02142> (8804)
in the days
<03117>
of her affliction
<06040>
and of her miseries
<04788>
all her pleasant things
<04262>
that she had in the days
<03117>
of old
<06924>_,
when her people
<05971>
fell
<05307> (8800)
into the hand
<03027>
of the enemy
<06862>_,
and none did help
<05826> (8802)
her: the adversaries
<06862>
saw
<07200> (8804)
her, [and] did mock
<07832> (8804)
at her sabbaths
<04868>_.
{pleasant: or, desirable}
Jerusalem
<03389>
hath grievously
<02399>
sinned
<02398> (8804)_;
therefore she is removed
<05206>_:
all that honoured
<03513> (8764)
her despise
<02107> (8689)
her, because they have seen
<07200> (8804)
her nakedness
<06172>_:
yea, she sigheth
<0584> (8738)_,
and turneth
<07725> (8799)
backward
<0268>_.
{is...: Heb. is become a removing, or, wandering}
Her filthiness
<02932>
[is] in her skirts
<07757>_;
she remembereth
<02142> (8804)
not her last end
<0319>_;
therefore she came down
<03381> (8799)
wonderfully
<06382>_:
she had no comforter
<05162> (8764)_.
O LORD
<03068>_,
behold
<07200> (8798)
my affliction
<06040>_:
for the enemy
<0341> (8802)
hath magnified
<01431> (8689)
[himself].
The adversary
<06862>
hath spread out
<06566> (8804)
his hand
<03027>
upon all her pleasant things
<04261>_:
for she hath seen
<07200> (8804)
[that] the heathen
<01471>
entered
<0935> (8804)
into her sanctuary
<04720>_,
whom thou didst command
<06680> (8765)
[that] they should not enter
<0935> (8799)
into thy congregation
<06951>_.
{pleasant: or, desirable}
All her people
<05971>
sigh
<0584> (8737)_,
they seek
<01245> (8764)
bread
<03899>_;
they have given
<05414> (8804)
their pleasant things
<04261> (8675) <04262>
for meat
<0400>
to relieve
<07725> (8687)
the soul
<05315>_:
see
<07200> (8798)_,
O LORD
<03068>_,
and consider
<05027> (8685)_;
for I am become vile
<02151> (8802)_.
{to...: or, to make the soul to come again}
[Is it] nothing to you, all ye that pass
<05674> (8802)
by
<01870>_?
behold
<05027> (8685)_,
and see
<07200> (8798)
if there be
<03426>
any sorrow
<04341>
like unto my sorrow
<04341>_,
which is done
<05953> (8776)
unto me, wherewith the LORD
<03068>
hath afflicted
<03013> (8689)
[me] in the day
<03117>
of his fierce
<02740>
anger
<0639>_.
{Is it...: or, It is nothing} {pass by: Heb. pass by the way?}
From above
<04791>
hath he sent
<07971> (8804)
fire
<0784>
into my bones
<06106>_,
and it prevaileth
<07287> (8799)
against them: he hath spread
<06566> (8804)
a net
<07568>
for my feet
<07272>_,
he hath turned
<07725> (8689)
me back
<0268>_:
he hath made
<05414> (8804)
me desolate
<08074> (8802)
[and] faint
<01739>
all the day
<03117>_.
The yoke
<05923>
of my transgressions
<06588>
is bound
<08244> (8738)
by his hand
<03027>_:
they are wreathed
<08276> (8691)_,
[and] come up
<05927> (8804)
upon my neck
<06677>_:
he hath made my strength
<03581>
to fall
<03782> (8689)_,
the Lord
<0136>
hath delivered
<05414> (8804)
me into [their] hands
<03027>_,
[from whom] I am not able
<03201> (8799)
to rise up
<06965> (8800)_.
The Lord
<0136>
hath trodden under foot
<05541> (8765)
all my mighty
<047>
[men] in the midst
<07130>
of me: he hath called
<07121> (8804)
an assembly
<04150>
against me to crush
<07665> (8800)
my young men
<0970>_:
the Lord
<0136>
hath trodden
<01869> (8804)
the virgin
<01330>_,
the daughter
<01323>
of Judah
<03063>_,
[as] in a winepress
<01660>_.
{the virgin...: or, the winepress of the virgin, etc}
For these [things] I weep
<01058> (8802)_;
mine eye
<05869>_,
mine eye
<05869>
runneth down
<03381> (8802)
with water
<04325>_,
because the comforter
<05162> (8764)
that should relieve
<07725> (8688)
my soul
<05315>
is far
<07368> (8804)
from me: my children
<01121>
are desolate
<08074> (8802)_,
because the enemy
<0341> (8802)
prevailed
<01396> (8804)_.
{relieve: Heb. bring back}
Zion
<06726>
spreadeth forth
<06566> (8765)
her hands
<03027>_,
[and there is] none to comfort
<05162> (8764)
her: the LORD
<03068>
hath commanded
<06680> (8765)
concerning Jacob
<03290>_,
[that] his adversaries
<06862>
[should be] round about
<05439>
him: Jerusalem
<03389>
is as a menstruous woman
<05079>
among them.
The LORD
<03068>
is righteous
<06662>_;
for I have rebelled
<04784> (8804)
against his commandment
<06310>_:
hear
<08085> (8798)_,
I pray you, all people
<05971>_,
and behold
<07200> (8798)
my sorrow
<04341>_:
my virgins
<01330>
and my young men
<0970>
are gone
<01980> (8804)
into captivity
<07628>_.
{commandment: Heb. mouth}
I called
<07121> (8804)
for my lovers
<0157> (8764)_,
[but] they deceived
<07411> (8765)
me: my priests
<03548>
and mine elders
<02205>
gave up the ghost
<01478> (8804)
in the city
<05892>_,
while they sought
<01245> (8765)
their meat
<0400>
to relieve
<07725> (8686)
their souls
<05315>_.
Behold
<07200> (8798)_,
O LORD
<03068>_;
for I [am] in distress
<06887> (8804)_:
my bowels
<04578>
are troubled
<02560> (8777)_;
mine heart
<03820>
is turned
<02015> (8738)
within
<07130>
me; for I have grievously
<04784> (8800)
rebelled
<04784> (8804)_:
abroad
<02351>
the sword
<02719>
bereaveth
<07921> (8765)_,
at home
<01004>
[there is] as death
<04194>_.
They have heard
<08085> (8804)
that I sigh
<0584> (8737)_:
[there is] none to comfort
<05162> (8764)
me: all mine enemies
<0341> (8802)
have heard
<08085> (8804)
of my trouble
<07451>_;
they are glad
<07797> (8804)
that thou hast done
<06213> (8804)
[it]: thou wilt bring
<0935> (8689)
the day
<03117>
[that] thou hast called
<07121> (8804)_,
and they shall be like
<03644>
unto me. {called: or, proclaimed}
Let all their wickedness
<07451>
come
<0935> (8799)
before
<06440>
thee; and do
<05953> (8778)
unto them, as thou hast done
<05953> (8782)
unto me for all my transgressions
<06588>_:
for my sighs
<0585>
[are] many
<07227>_,
and my heart
<03820>
[is] faint
<01742>_.
How hath the Lord
<0136>
covered
<05743> (0)
the daughter
<01323>
of Zion
<06726>
with a cloud
<05743> (8686)
in his anger
<0639>_,
[and] cast down
<07993> (8689)
from heaven
<08064>
unto the earth
<0776>
the beauty
<08597>
of Israel
<03478>_,
and remembered
<02142> (8804)
not his footstool
<01916> <07272>
in the day
<03117>
of his anger
<0639>_!
The Lord
<0136>
hath swallowed up
<01104> (8765)
all the habitations
<04999>
of Jacob
<03290>_,
and hath not pitied
<02550> (8804)_:
he hath thrown down
<02040> (8804)
in his wrath
<05678>
the strong holds
<04013>
of the daughter
<01323>
of Judah
<03063>_;
he hath brought [them] down
<05060> (8689)
to the ground
<0776>_:
he hath polluted
<02490> (8765)
the kingdom
<04467>
and the princes
<08269>
thereof. {brought...: Heb. made to touch}
He hath cut off
<01438> (8804)
in [his] fierce
<02750>
anger
<0639>
all the horn
<07161>
of Israel
<03478>_:
he hath drawn
<07725> (8689)
back
<0268>
his right hand
<03225>
from before
<06440>
the enemy
<0341> (8802)_,
and he burned
<01197> (8799)
against Jacob
<03290>
like a flaming
<03852>
fire
<0784>_,
[which] devoureth
<0398> (8804)
round about
<05439>_.
He hath bent
<01869> (8804)
his bow
<07198>
like an enemy
<0341> (8802)_:
he stood
<05324> (8737)
with his right hand
<03225>
as an adversary
<06862>_,
and slew
<02026> (8799)
all [that were] pleasant
<04261>
to the eye
<05869>
in the tabernacle
<0168>
of the daughter
<01323>
of Zion
<06726>_:
he poured out
<08210> (8804)
his fury
<02534>
like fire
<0784>_.
{all...: Heb. all the desirable of the eye}
The Lord
<0136>
was as an enemy
<0341> (8802)_:
he hath swallowed up
<01104> (8765)
Israel
<03478>_,
he hath swallowed up
<01104> (8765)
all her palaces
<0759>_:
he hath destroyed
<07843> (8765)
his strong holds
<04013>_,
and hath increased
<07235> (8686)
in the daughter
<01323>
of Judah
<03063>
mourning
<08386>
and lamentation
<0592>_.
And he hath violently taken away
<02554> (8799)
his tabernacle
<07900>_,
as [if it were of] a garden
<01588>_:
he hath destroyed
<07843> (8765)
his places of the assembly
<04150>_:
the LORD
<03068>
hath caused the solemn feasts
<04150>
and sabbaths
<07676>
to be forgotten
<07911> (8765)
in Zion
<06726>_,
and hath despised
<05006> (8799)
in the indignation
<02195>
of his anger
<0639>
the king
<04428>
and the priest
<03548>_.
{tabernacle: or, hedge}
The Lord
<0136>
hath cast off
<02186> (8804)
his altar
<04196>_,
he hath abhorred
<05010> (8765)
his sanctuary
<04720>_,
he hath given up
<05462> (8689)
into the hand
<03027>
of the enemy
<0341> (8802)
the walls
<02346>
of her palaces
<0759>_;
they have made
<05414> (8804)
a noise
<06963>
in the house
<01004>
of the LORD
<03068>_,
as in the day
<03117>
of a solemn feast
<04150>_.
{given up: Heb. shut up}
The LORD
<03068>
hath purposed
<02803> (8804)
to destroy
<07843> (8687)
the wall
<02346>
of the daughter
<01323>
of Zion
<06726>_:
he hath stretched out
<05186> (8804)
a line
<06957>_,
he hath not withdrawn
<07725> (8689)
his hand
<03027>
from destroying
<01104> (8763)_:
therefore he made the rampart
<02426>
and the wall
<02346>
to lament
<056> (8686)_;
they languished
<0535> (8797)
together
<03162>_.
{destroying: Heb. swallowing up}
Her gates
<08179>
are sunk
<02883> (8804)
into the ground
<0776>_;
he hath destroyed
<06> (8765)
and broken
<07665> (8765)
her bars
<01280>_:
her king
<04428>
and her princes
<08269>
[are] among the Gentiles
<01471>_:
the law
<08451>
[is] no [more]; her prophets
<05030>
also find
<04672> (8804)
no vision
<02377>
from the LORD
<03068>_.
The elders
<02205>
of the daughter
<01323>
of Zion
<06726>
sit
<03427> (8799)
upon the ground
<0776>_,
[and] keep silence
<01826> (8799)_:
they have cast up
<05927> (8689)
dust
<06083>
upon their heads
<07218>_;
they have girded
<02296> (8804)
themselves with sackcloth
<08242>_:
the virgins
<01330>
of Jerusalem
<03389>
hang down
<03381> (8689)
their heads
<07218>
to the ground
<0776>_.
Mine eyes
<05869>
do fail
<03615> (8804)
with tears
<01832>_,
my bowels
<04578>
are troubled
<02560> (8777)_,
my liver
<03516>
is poured
<08210> (8738)
upon the earth
<0776>_,
for the destruction
<07667>
of the daughter
<01323>
of my people
<05971>_;
because the children
<05768>
and the sucklings
<03243> (8802)
swoon
<05848> (8736)
in the streets
<07339>
of the city
<07151>_.
{swoon: or, faint}
They say
<0559> (8799)
to their mothers
<0517>_,
Where [is] corn
<01715>
and wine
<03196>_?
when they swooned
<05848> (8692)
as the wounded
<02491>
in the streets
<07339>
of the city
<05892>_,
when their soul
<05315>
was poured out
<08210> (8692)
into their mothers
<0517>_'
bosom
<02436>_.
What thing shall I take to witness
<05749> (8686) (8675) <05749> (8799)
for thee? what thing
<04100>
shall I liken
<01819> (8762)
to thee, O daughter
<01323>
of Jerusalem
<03389>_?
what shall I equal
<07737> (8686)
to thee, that I may comfort
<05162> (8762)
thee, O virgin
<01330>
daughter
<01323>
of Zion
<06726>_?
for thy breach
<07667>
[is] great
<01419>
like the sea
<03220>_:
who can heal
<07495> (8799)
thee?
Thy prophets
<05030>
have seen
<02372> (8804)
vain
<07723>
and foolish things
<08602>
for thee: and they have not discovered
<01540> (8765)
thine iniquity
<05771>_,
to turn away
<07725> (8687)
thy captivity
<07622> (8675) <07622>_;
but have seen
<02372> (8799)
for thee false
<07723>
burdens
<04864>
and causes of banishment
<04065>_.
All that pass
<05674> (8802)
by clap
<05606> (8804)
[their] hands
<03709>
at thee
<01870>_;
they hiss
<08319> (8804)
and wag
<05128> (8686)
their head
<07218>
at the daughter
<01323>
of Jerusalem
<03389>_,
[saying, Is] this the city
<05892>
that [men] call
<0559> (8799)
The perfection
<03632>
of beauty
<03308>_,
The joy
<04885>
of the whole earth
<0776>_?
{by: Heb. by the way}
All thine enemies
<0341> (8802)
have opened
<06475> (8804)
their mouth
<06310>
against thee: they hiss
<08319> (8804)
and gnash
<02786> (8799)
the teeth
<08127>_:
they say
<0559> (8804)_,
We have swallowed [her] up
<01104> (8765)_:
certainly
<0389>
this [is] the day
<03117>
that we looked for
<06960> (8765)_;
we have found
<04672> (8804)_,
we have seen
<07200> (8804)
[it].
The LORD
<03068>
hath done
<06213> (8804)
[that] which he had devised
<02161> (8804)_;
he hath fulfilled
<01214> (8765)
his word
<0565>
that he had commanded
<06680> (8765)
in the days
<03117>
of old
<06924>_:
he hath thrown down
<02040> (8804)_,
and hath not pitied
<02550> (8804)_:
and he hath caused [thine] enemy
<0341> (8802)
to rejoice
<08055> (8762)
over thee, he hath set up
<07311> (8689)
the horn
<07161>
of thine adversaries
<06862>_.
Their heart
<03820>
cried
<06817> (8804)
unto the Lord
<0136>_,
O wall
<02346>
of the daughter
<01323>
of Zion
<06726>_,
let tears
<01832>
run down
<03381> (8685)
like a river
<05158>
day
<03119>
and night
<03915>_:
give
<05414> (8799)
thyself no rest
<06314>_;
let not the apple
<01323>
of thine eye
<05869>
cease
<01826> (8799)_.
Arise
<06965> (8798)_,
cry out
<07442> (8798)
in the night
<03915>_:
in the beginning
<07218>
of the watches
<0821>
pour out
<08210> (8798)
thine heart
<03820>
like water
<04325>
before
<05227>
the face
<06440>
of the Lord
<0136>_:
lift up
<05375> (8798)
thy hands
<03709>
toward him for the life
<05315>
of thy young children
<05768>_,
that faint
<05848> (8803)
for hunger
<07458>
in the top
<07218>
of every street
<02351>_.
Behold
<07200> (8798)_,
O LORD
<03068>_,
and consider
<05027> (8685)
to whom thou hast done
<05953> (8782)
this
<03541>_.
Shall the women
<0802>
eat
<0398> (8799)
their fruit
<06529>_,
[and] children
<05768>
of a span long
<02949>_?
shall the priest
<03548>
and the prophet
<05030>
be slain
<02026> (8735)
in the sanctuary
<04720>
of the Lord
<0136>_?
{of a span...: or, swaddled with their hands?}
The young
<05288>
and the old
<02205>
lie
<07901> (8804)
on the ground
<0776>
in the streets
<02351>_:
my virgins
<01330>
and my young men
<0970>
are fallen
<05307> (8804)
by the sword
<02719>_;
thou hast slain
<02026> (8804)
[them] in the day
<03117>
of thine anger
<0639>_;
thou hast killed
<02873> (8804)_,
[and] not pitied
<02550> (8804)_.
Thou hast called
<07121> (8799)
as in a solemn
<04150>
day
<03117>
my terrors
<04032>
round about
<05439>_,
so that in the day
<03117>
of the LORD'S
<03068>
anger
<0639>
none escaped
<06412>
nor remained
<08300>_:
those that I have swaddled
<02946> (8765)
and brought up
<07235> (8765)
hath mine enemy
<0341> (8802)
consumed
<03615> (8765)_.
I [am] the man
<01397>
[that] hath seen
<07200> (8804)
affliction
<06040>
by the rod
<07626>
of his wrath
<05678>_.
He hath led
<05090> (8804)
me, and brought
<03212> (8686)
[me into] darkness
<02822>_,
but not [into] light
<0216>_.
Surely against me is he turned
<07725> (8799)_;
he turneth
<02015> (8799)
his hand
<03027>
[against me] all the day
<03117>_.
My flesh
<01320>
and my skin
<05785>
hath he made old
<01086> (8765)_;
he hath broken
<07665> (8765)
my bones
<06106>_.
He hath builded against
<01129> (8804)
me, and compassed
<05362> (8686)
[me] with gall
<07219>
and travail
<08513>_.
He hath set
<03427> (8689)
me in dark places
<04285>_,
as [they that be] dead
<04191> (8801)
of old
<05769>_.
He hath hedged
<01443> (8804)
me about, that I cannot get out
<03318> (8799)_:
he hath made my chain
<05178>
heavy
<03513> (8689)_.
Also when I cry
<02199> (8799)
and shout
<07768> (8762)_,
he shutteth out
<05640> (8804)
my prayer
<08605>_.
He hath inclosed
<01443> (8804)
my ways
<01870>
with hewn stone
<01496>_,
he hath made my paths
<05410>
crooked
<05753> (8765)_.
He [was] unto me [as] a bear
<01677>
lying in wait
<0693> (8802)_,
[and as] a lion
<0738>
in secret places
<04565>_.
He hath turned aside
<05493> (8790)
my ways
<01870>_,
and pulled me in pieces
<06582> (8762)_:
he hath made
<07760> (8804)
me desolate
<08074> (8802)_.
He hath bent
<01869> (8804)
his bow
<07198>_,
and set
<05324> (8686)
me as a mark
<04307>
for the arrow
<02671>_.
He hath caused the arrows
<01121>
of his quiver
<0827>
to enter
<0935> (8689)
into my reins
<03629>_.
{arrows: Heb. sons}
I was a derision
<07814>
to all my people
<05971>_;
[and] their song
<05058>
all the day
<03117>_.
He hath filled
<07646> (8689)
me with bitterness
<04844>_,
he hath made me drunken
<07301> (8689)
with wormwood
<03939>_.
{bitterness: Heb. bitternesses}
He hath also broken
<01638> (8686)
my teeth
<08127>
with gravel stones
<02687>_,
he hath covered
<03728> (8689)
me with ashes
<0665>_.
{covered...: or, rolled me in the ashes}
And thou hast removed
<02186> (0)
my soul
<05315>
far off
<02186> (8799)
from peace
<07965>_:
I forgat
<05382> (8804)
prosperity
<02896>_.
{prosperity: Heb. good}
And I said
<0559> (8799)_,
My strength
<05331>
and my hope
<08431>
is perished
<06> (8804)
from the LORD
<03068>_:
Remembering
<02142> (8798)
mine affliction
<06040>
and my misery
<04788>_,
the wormwood
<03939>
and the gall
<07219>_.
{Remembering: or, Remember}
My soul
<05315>
hath [them] still
<02142> (8800)
in remembrance
<02142> (8799)_,
and is humbled
<07743> (8686)
in me. {humbled: Heb. bowed}
This I recall
<07725> (8686)
to my mind
<03820>_,
therefore have I hope
<03176> (8686)_.
{recall...: Heb. make to return to my heart}
[It is of] the LORD'S
<03068>
mercies
<02617>
that we are not consumed
<08552> (8804)_,
because his compassions
<07356>
fail
<03615> (8804)
not.
[They are] new
<02319>
every morning
<01242>_:
great
<07227>
[is] thy faithfulness
<0530>_.
The LORD
<03068>
[is] my portion
<02506>_,
saith
<0559> (8804)
my soul
<05315>_;
therefore will I hope
<03176> (8686)
in him.
The LORD
<03068>
[is] good
<02896>
unto them that wait
<06960> (8802)
for him, to the soul
<05315>
[that] seeketh
<01875> (8799)
him.
[It is] good
<02896>
that [a man] should both hope
<03175> (8675) <02342> (8799)
and quietly wait
<01748>
for the salvation
<08668>
of the LORD
<03068>_.
[It is] good
<02896>
for a man
<01397>
that he bear
<05375> (8799)
the yoke
<05923>
in his youth
<05271>_.
He sitteth
<03427> (8799)
alone
<0910>
and keepeth silence
<01826> (8799)_,
because he hath borne
<05190> (8804)
[it] upon him.
He putteth
<05414> (8799)
his mouth
<06310>
in the dust
<06083>_;
if so be there may be
<03426>
hope
<08615>_.
He giveth
<05414> (8799)
[his] cheek
<03895>
to him that smiteth
<05221> (8688)
him: he is filled full
<07646> (8799)
with reproach
<02781>_.
For the Lord
<0136>
will not cast off
<02186> (8799)
for ever
<05769>_:
But though he cause grief
<03013> (8689)_,
yet will he have compassion
<07355> (8765)
according to the multitude
<07230>
of his mercies
<02617>_.
For he doth not afflict
<06031> (8765)
willingly
<03820>
nor grieve
<03013> (8762)
the children
<01121>
of men
<0376>_.
{willingly: Heb. from his heart}
To crush
<01792> (8763)
under his feet
<07272>
all the prisoners
<0615>
of the earth
<0776>_,
To turn aside
<05186> (8687)
the right
<04941>
of a man
<01397>
before the face
<06440>
of the most High
<05945>_,
{the most High: or, a superior}
To subvert
<05791> (8763)
a man
<0120>
in his cause
<07379>_,
the Lord
<0136>
approveth
<07200> (8804)
not. {approveth not: or, seeth not}
Who [is] he [that] saith
<0559> (8804)_,
and it cometh to pass, [when] the Lord
<0136>
commandeth
<06680> (8765)
[it] not?
Out of the mouth
<06310>
of the most High
<05945>
proceedeth
<03318> (8799)
not evil
<07451>
and good
<02896>_?
Wherefore doth a living
<02416>
man
<0120>
complain
<0596> (8691)_,
a man
<01397>
for the punishment of his sins
<02399>_?
{complain: or, murmur}
Let us search
<02664> (8799)
and try
<02713> (8799)
our ways
<01870>_,
and turn again
<07725> (8799)
to the LORD
<03068>_.
Let us lift up
<05375> (8799)
our heart
<03824>
with [our] hands
<03709>
unto God
<0410>
in the heavens
<08064>_.
We
<05168>
have transgressed
<06586> (8804)
and have rebelled
<04784> (8804)_:
thou hast not pardoned
<05545> (8804)_.
Thou hast covered
<05526> (8804)
with anger
<0639>_,
and persecuted
<07291> (8799)
us: thou hast slain
<02026> (8804)_,
thou hast not pitied
<02550> (8804)_.
Thou hast covered
<05526> (8804)
thyself with a cloud
<06051>_,
that [our] prayer
<08605>
should not pass through
<05674> (8800)_.
Thou hast made
<07760> (8799)
us [as] the offscouring
<05501>
and refuse
<03973>
in the midst
<07130>
of the people
<05971>_.
All our enemies
<0341> (8802)
have opened
<06475> (8804)
their mouths
<06310>
against us.
Fear
<06343>
and a snare
<06354>
is come upon us, desolation
<07612>
and destruction
<07667>_.
Mine eye
<05869>
runneth down
<03381> (8799)
with rivers
<06388>
of water
<04325>
for the destruction
<07667>
of the daughter
<01323>
of my people
<05971>_.
Mine eye
<05869>
trickleth down
<05064> (8738)_,
and ceaseth
<01820> (8799)
not, without any intermission
<02014>_,
Till the LORD
<03068>
look down
<08259> (8686)_,
and behold
<07200> (8799)
from heaven
<08064>_.
Mine eye
<05869>
affecteth
<05953> (8782)
mine heart
<05315>
because of all the daughters
<01323>
of my city
<05892>_.
{mine heart: Heb. my soul} {because...: or, more than all}
Mine enemies
<0341> (8802)
chased
<06679> (8804)
me sore
<06679> (8800)_,
like a bird
<06833>_,
without cause
<02600>_.
They have cut off
<06789> (8804)
my life
<02416>
in the dungeon
<0953>_,
and cast
<03034> (8762)
a stone
<068>
upon me.
Waters
<04325>
flowed over
<06687> (8804)
mine head
<07218>_;
[then] I said
<0559> (8804)_,
I am cut off
<01504> (8738)_.
I called
<07121> (8804)
upon thy name
<08034>_,
O LORD
<03068>_,
out of the low
<08482>
dungeon
<0953>_.
Thou hast heard
<08085> (8804)
my voice
<06963>_:
hide
<05956> (8686)
not thine ear
<0241>
at my breathing
<07309>_,
at my cry
<07775>_.
Thou drewest near
<07126> (8804)
in the day
<03117>
[that] I called
<07121> (8799)
upon thee: thou saidst
<0559> (8804)_,
Fear
<03372> (8799)
not.
O Lord
<0136>_,
thou hast pleaded
<07378> (8804)
the causes
<07379>
of my soul
<05315>_;
thou hast redeemed
<01350> (8804)
my life
<02416>_.
O LORD
<03068>_,
thou hast seen
<07200> (8804)
my wrong
<05792>_:
judge
<08199> (8798)
thou my cause
<04941>_.
Thou hast seen
<07200> (8804)
all their vengeance
<05360>
[and] all their imaginations
<04284>
against me.
Thou hast heard
<08085> (8804)
their reproach
<02781>_,
O LORD
<03068>_,
[and] all their imaginations
<04284>
against me;
The lips
<08193>
of those that rose up
<06965> (8801)
against me, and their device
<01902>
against me all the day
<03117>_.
Behold
<05027> (8685)
their sitting down
<03427> (8800)_,
and their rising up
<07012>_;
I [am] their musick
<04485>_.
Render
<07725> (8686)
unto them a recompence
<01576>_,
O LORD
<03068>_,
according to the work
<04639>
of their hands
<03027>_.
Give
<05414> (8799)
them sorrow
<04044>
of heart
<03820>_,
thy curse
<08381>
unto them. {sorrow...: or, obstinacy of heart}
Persecute
<07291> (8799)
and destroy
<08045> (8686)
them in anger
<0639>
from under the heavens
<08064>
of the LORD
<03068>_.
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}
