For her stones are dear to your servants; her very dust moves them to pity.
Surely Your servants find pleasure in her stones And feel pity for her dust.
For your people love every stone in her walls and show favor even to the dust in her streets.
Oh, how your servants love this city's rubble and weep with compassion over its dust!
For your servants take pleasure in her stones, looking with love on her dust.
For your servants hold its stones dear, and have pity on its dust.
For Your servants take pleasure in her stones, And show favor to her dust.
