Lamentations 2:5


ה (He)

2:5 The Lord, 1  like an enemy,

destroyed 2  Israel.

He destroyed 3  all her palaces;

he ruined her 4  fortified cities.

He made everyone in Daughter Judah

mourn and lament. 5 

1 tc The MT reads אֲדֹנָי (’adonay, “the Lord”) here rather than יהוה (YHWH, “the Lord”). See the tc note at 1:14.

2 tn Heb “swallowed up.”

3 tn Heb “swallowed up.”

4 tn Heb “his.” For consistency this has been translated as “her.”

5 tn Heb “He increased in Daughter Judah mourning and lamentation.”
