Why have you broken down its walls so that all who pass by pick its grapes?
Why have You broken down its hedges, So that all who pass that way pick its fruit?
But now, why have you broken down our walls so that all who pass may steal our fruit?
So why do you no longer protect your vine? Trespassers pick its grapes at will;
Why are its walls broken down by your hands, so that all who go by may take its fruit?
Why then have you broken down its walls, so that all who pass along the way pluck its fruit?
Why have You broken down her hedges, So that all who pass by the way pluck her fruit ?
