1 H349 How H2091 is the gold H6004 become H6004 dim! H2896 how is the most H3800 fine gold H8132 changed! H68 the stones H6944 of the sanctuary H8210 are poured H7218 out in the top H3605 of every H2351 street.
2 H3368 The precious H1121 sons H6726 of Zion, H5537 comparable H6337 to fine gold, H349 how H2803 are they esteemed H2789 as earthen H5035 pitchers, H4639 the work H3027 of the hands H3335 of the potter!
3 H1571 Even H8577 the sea monsters H2502 draw H7699 out the breast, H3243 they give suck H1482 to their young H1323 ones: the daughter H5971 of my people H393 is become cruel, H3283 like the ostriches H4057 in the wilderness.
4 H3956 The tongue H3243 of the sucking H1692 child sticks H2441 to the roof H2441 of his mouth H6772 for thirst: H5768 the young children H7592 ask H3899 bread, H369 and no H6566 man breaks it to them.
5 H398 They that did feed H4574 delicately H8074 are desolate H2351 in the streets: H539 they that were brought H8144 up in scarlet H2263 embrace H830 dunghills.
6 H5771 For the punishment H5771 of the iniquity H1323 of the daughter H5971 of my people H1431 is greater H2403 than the punishment H5467 of the sin of Sodom, H2015 that was overthrown H7281 as in a moment, H3808 and no H3027 hands H2342 stayed on her.
7 H5139 Her Nazarites H2141 were purer H7950 than snow, H6705 they were whiter H2461 than milk, H119 they were more ruddy H6106 in body H6443 than rubies, H1508 their polishing H5601 was of sapphire:
8 H8389 Their visage H2821 is blacker H7815 than a coal; H5234 they are not known H2351 in the streets: H5785 their skin H6821 sticks H6106 to their bones; H3001 it is withered, H1961 it is become H6086 like a stick.
9 H2491 They that be slain H2719 with the sword H2896 are better H2491 than they that be slain H7457 with hunger: H1992 for these H2100 pine H1856 away, stricken H8570 through for want of the fruits H7704 of the field.
10 H3027 The hands H7362 of the pitiful H802 women H1310 have sodden H3206 their own children: H1262 they were their meat H7667 in the destruction H1323 of the daughter H5971 of my people.
11 H3068 The LORD H3615 has accomplished H2534 his fury; H8210 he has poured H2740 out his fierce H639 anger, H3341 and has kindled H784 a fire H6726 in Zion, H398 and it has devoured H3247 the foundations thereof.
12 H4428 The kings H776 of the earth, H3605 and all H3427 the inhabitants H8398 of the world, H539 would not have believed H6862 that the adversary H341 and the enemy H935 should have entered H8179 into the gates H3389 of Jerusalem.
13 H2403 For the sins H5030 of her prophets, H5771 and the iniquities H3548 of her priests, H8210 that have shed H1818 the blood H6662 of the just H7130 in the middle of her,
14 H5128 They have wandered H5787 as blind H2351 men in the streets, H1351 they have polluted H1818 themselves with blood, H3201 so that men could H5060 not touch H3830 their garments.
15 H7121 They cried H5493 to them, Depart H2931 you; it is unclean; H5493 depart, H5493 depart, H5060 touch H3588 not: when H5132 they fled H5128 away and wandered, H559 they said H1471 among the heathen, H3808 They shall no H3254 more H1481 sojourn there.
16 H6440 The anger H3068 of the LORD H2505 has divided H3808 them; he will no H3254 more H5027 regard H5375 them: they respected H6440 not the persons H3548 of the priests, H2603 they favored H2205 not the elders.
17 H5869 As for us, our eyes H5750 as yet H3615 failed H1892 for our vain H5833 help: H6822 in our watching H6822 we have watched H1471 for a nation H3467 that could not save us.
18 H6679 They hunt H6806 our steps, H3808 that we cannot H3212 go H7339 in our streets: H7093 our end H7126 is near, H3117 our days H4390 are fulfilled; H7093 for our end H935 is come.
19 H7291 Our persecutors H7031 are swifter H5404 than the eagles H8064 of the heaven: H1814 they pursued H2022 us on the mountains, H693 they laid wait H4057 for us in the wilderness.
20 H7307 The breath H639 of our nostrils, H4899 the anointed H3068 of the LORD, H3920 was taken H7825 in their pits, H834 of whom H559 we said, H6738 Under his shadow H2421 we shall live H1471 among the heathen.
21 H7797 Rejoice H8056 and be glad, H1323 O daughter H123 of Edom, H3427 that dwell H776 in the land H5780 of Uz; H3563 the cup H1571 also H5674 shall pass H7937 through to you: you shall be drunken, H6168 and shall make yourself naked.
