Lamentations 3

  1 H1397 I AM the man H7200 that has seen H6040 affliction H7626 by the rod H5678 of his wrath.
  2 H5090 He has led H3212 me, and brought H2822 me into darkness, H216 but not into light.
  3 H389 Surely H7725 against me is he turned; H7725 he turns H3027 his hand H3605 against me all H3117 the day.
  4 H1320 My flesh H5785 and my skin H1086 has he made old; H7665 he has broken H6106 my bones.
  5 H1129 He has built H5921 against H5362 me, and compassed H7219 me with gall H8513 and travail.
  6 H3427 He has set H4285 me in dark H4191 places, as they that be dead H5769 of old.
  7 H1443 He has hedged H1157 me about, H3808 that I cannot H3318 get H5178 out: he has made my chain H3513 heavy.
  8 H1571 Also H3588 when H2199 I cry H7768 and shout, H5640 he shuts H8605 out my prayer.
  9 H1443 He has enclosed H1870 my ways H1496 with hewn H1496 stone, H5410 he has made my paths H5753 crooked.
  10 H1677 He was to me as a bear H693 lying in wait, H738 and as a lion H4565 in secret places.
  11 H5493 He has turned H1870 aside my ways, H6582 and pulled H7760 me in pieces: he has made H8076 me desolate.
  12 H1869 He has bent H7198 his bow, H5324 and set H4307 me as a mark H2671 for the arrow.
  13 H1121 He has caused the arrows H827 of his quiver H935 to enter H3629 into my reins.
  14 H7814 I was a derision H3605 to all H5971 my people; H5058 and their song H3605 all H3117 the day.
  15 H7646 He has filled H4844 me with bitterness, H7760 he has made H7301 me drunken H3939 with wormwood.
  16 H1638 He has also broken H8127 my teeth H2687 with gravel H2687 stones, H3728 he has covered H665 me with ashes.
  17 H2186 And you have removed H5315 my soul H2186 far H7965 off from peace: H5382 I forgot H2896 prosperity.
  18 H559 And I said, H5331 My strength H8431 and my hope H6 is perished H3068 from the LORD:
  19 H2142 Remembering H6040 my affliction H4788 and my misery, H3939 the wormwood H7219 and the gall.
  20 H5315 My soul H2142 has them still in remembrance, H7743 and is humbled in me.
  21 H2063 This H7725 I recall H3820 to my mind, H5921 therefore H3651 H3176 have I hope.
  22 H3068 It is of the LORD’s H2617 mercies H8552 that we are not consumed, H3588 because H7355 his compassions H3615 fail not.
  23 H2319 They are new H1242 every morning: H7227 great H530 is your faithfulness.
  24 H3068 The LORD H2506 is my portion, H559 said H5315 my soul; H5921 therefore H3651 H3176 will I hope in him.
  25 H3068 The LORD H2896 is good H6960 to them that wait H5315 for him, to the soul H1875 that seeks him.
  26 H2896 It is good H2342 that a man should both hope H1748 and quietly wait H8668 for the salvation H3068 of the LORD.
  27 H2896 It is good H1397 for a man H5375 that he bear H5923 the yoke H5271 of his youth.
  28 H3427 He sits H905 alone H1826 and keeps silence, H3588 because H5190 he has borne it on him.
  29 H5414 He puts H6310 his mouth H6083 in the dust; H194 if H8615 so be there may be hope.
  30 H5414 He gives H3895 his cheek H5221 to him that smites H7646 him: he is filled H7646 full H2781 with reproach.
  31 H136 For the LORD H2186 will not cast H5769 off for ever:
  32 H518 But though H3013 he cause grief, H7355 yet will he have compassion H7230 according to the multitude H2617 of his mercies.
  33 H6031 For he does not afflict H3820 willingly H3013 nor grieve H1121 the children H376 of men.
  34 H1792 To crush H8478 under H7272 his feet H3605 all H615 the prisoners H776 of the earth.
  35 H5186 To turn H5186 aside H4941 the right H1397 of a man H5048 before H6440 the face H5945 of the most H5945 High,
  36 H5791 To subvert H120 a man H7379 in his cause, H136 the LORD H7200 approves not.
  37 H4310 Who H559 is he that said, H1961 and it comes H136 to pass, when the Lord H6680 commands it not?
  38 H6310 Out of the mouth H5945 of the most H5945 High H3318 proceeds H7451 not evil H2896 and good?
  39 H4100 Why H2416 does a living H120 man H596 complain, H1397 a man H2399 for the punishment H2399 of his sins?
  40 H2664 Let us search H2713 and try H1870 our ways, H7725 and turn H7725 again H3068 to the LORD.
  41 H5375 Let us lift H3824 up our heart H3709 with our hands H410 to God H8064 in the heavens.
  42 H6586 We have transgressed H4784 and have rebelled: H5545 you have not pardoned.
  43 H5526 You have covered H639 with anger, H7291 and persecuted H2026 us: you have slain, H2550 you have not pitied.
  44 H5526 You have covered H6051 yourself with a cloud, H8605 that our prayer H5674 should not pass through.
  45 H7760 You have made H5501 us as the offscouring H3973 and refuse H7130 in the middle H5971 of the people.
  46 H3605 All H341 our enemies H6475 have opened H6310 their mouths H5921 against us.
  47 H6343 Fear H6354 and a snare H1961 is come H7612 on us, desolation H7667 and destruction.
  48 H5869 My eye H3381 runs H6388 down with rivers H4325 of water H7667 for the destruction H1323 of the daughter H5971 of my people.
  49 H5869 My eye H5064 trickles H1820 down, and ceases H369 not, without H2014 any intermission.
  50 H5704 Till H3068 the LORD H8259 look H7200 down, and behold H8064 from heaven.
  51 H5869 My eye H5953 affects H5315 my heart H3605 because of all H1323 the daughters H5892 of my city.
  52 H341 My enemies H6679 chased H6833 me sore, like a bird, H2600 without H2600 cause.
  53 H6789 They have cut H2416 off my life H953 in the dungeon, H3034 and cast H68 a stone on me.
  54 H4325 Waters H6687 flowed H5921 over H7218 my head; H559 then I said, H1504 I am cut off.
  55 H7121 I called H8034 on your name, H3068 O LORD, H8482 out of the low H953 dungeon.
  56 H8085 You have heard H6963 my voice: H5956 hide H241 not your ear H7309 at my breathing, H7775 at my cry.
  57 H7126 You drew near H3117 in the day H7121 that I called H559 on you: you said, H3372 Fear not.
  58 H136 O LORD, H7378 you have pleaded H7379 the causes H5315 of my soul; H1350 you have redeemed my life.
  59 H3068 O LORD, H7200 you have seen H5792 my wrong: H8199 judge H4941 you my cause.
  60 H7200 You have seen H3605 all H5360 their vengeance H3605 and all H4284 their imaginations against me.
  61 H8085 You have heard H2781 their reproach, H3068 O LORD, H3605 and all H4284 their imaginations H5921 against me;
  62 H8193 The lips H6965 of those that rose H1902 up against me, and their device H5921 against H3605 me all H3117 the day.
  63 H5027 Behold H3427 their sitting H7012 down, and their rising H4485 up; I am their music.
  64 H7725 Render H1576 to them a recompense, H3068 O LORD, H4639 according to the work H3027 of their hands.
  65 H5414 Give H4044 them sorrow H3820 of heart, H8381 your curse to them.
  66 H7291 Persecute H8045 and destroy H639 them in anger H8478 from under H8064 the heavens H3068 of the LORD.
