1 H5892 How doth the city H3427 sit H910 solitary, H7227 that was full H5971 of people! H490 She is become as a widow, H7227 that was great H1471 among the nations! H8282 She that was a princess H4082 among the provinces H4522 is become tributary!
2 H1058 She weepeth H1058 sore H3915 in the night, H1832 and her tears H3895 are on her cheeks; H157 Among all her lovers H5162 she hath none to comfort H7453 her: All her friends H898 have dealt treacherously H341 with her; they are become her enemies.
3 H3063 Judah H1540 is gone into captivity H6040 because of affliction, H7230 and because of great H5656 servitude; H3427 She dwelleth H1471 among the nations, H4672 she findeth H4494 no rest: H7291 All her persecutors H5381 overtook H4712 her within the straits.
4 H1870 The ways H6726 of Zion H57 do mourn, H935 because none come H4150 to the solemn assembly; H8179 All her gates H8074 are desolate, H3548 her priests H584 do sigh: H1330 Her virgins H3013 are afflicted, H4843 and she herself is in bitterness.
5 H6862 Her adversaries H7218 are become the head, H341 her enemies H7951 prosper; H3068 For Jehovah H3013 hath afflicted H7230 her for the multitude H6588 of her transgressions: H5768 Her young children H1980 are gone H7628 into captivity H6440 before H6862 the adversary.
6 H1323 And from the daughter H6726 of Zion H1926 all her majesty H3318 is departed: H8269 Her princes H354 are become like harts H4672 that find H4829 no pasture, H3212 And they are gone H3581 without strength H6440 before H7291 the pursuer.
7 H3389 Jerusalem H2142 remembereth H3117 in the days H6040 of her affliction H4788 and of her miseries H4262 all her pleasant things H3117 that were from the days H6924 of old: H5971 When her people H5307 fell H3027 into the hand H6862 of the adversary, H5826 and none did help H6862 her, The adversaries H7200 saw H7832 her, they did mock H4868 at her desolations.
8 H3389 Jerusalem H2399 hath grievously H2398 sinned; H5206 therefore she is become H3513 as an unclean thing; All that honored H2107 her despise H7200 her, because they have seen H6172 her nakedness: H584 Yea, she sigheth, H7725 and turneth H268 backward.
9 H2932 Her filthiness H7757 was in her skirts; H2142 she remembered H319 not her latter end; H3381 Therefore is she come down H6382 wonderfully; H5162 she hath no comforter: H7200 Behold, H3068 O Jehovah, H6040 my affliction; H341 for the enemy H1431 hath magnified himself.
10 H6862 The adversary H6566 hath spread out H3027 his hand H4261 upon all her pleasant things: H7200 For she hath seen H1471 that the nations H935 are entered H4720 into her sanctuary, H6680 Concerning whom thou didst command H935 that they should not enter H6951 into thine assembly.
11 H5971 All her people H584 sigh, H1245 they seek H3899 bread; H5414 They have given H4261 their pleasant things H400 for food H7725 to refresh H5315 the soul: H7200 See, H3068 O Jehovah, H5027 and behold; H2151 for I am become abject.
12 H5674 Is it nothing to you, all ye that pass H1870 by? H5027 Behold, H7200 and see H3426 if there be H4341 any sorrow H4341 like unto my sorrow, H5953 which is brought H3068 upon me, Wherewith Jehovah H3013 hath afflicted H3117 me in the day H2740 of his fierce H639 anger.
13 H4791 From on high H7971 hath he sent H784 fire H6106 into my bones, H7287 and it prevaileth H6566 against them; He hath spread H7568 a net H7272 for my feet, H7725 he hath turned H268 me back: H5414 He hath made H8074 me desolate H1739 and faint H3117 all the day.
14 H5923 The yoke H6588 of my transgressions H8244 is bound H3027 by his hand; H8276 They are knit H5927 together, they are come up H6677 upon my neck; H3581 He hath made my strength H3782 to fail: H136 The Lord H5414 hath delivered H3027 me into their hands, H3201 against whom I am not able H6965 to stand.
15 H136 The Lord H5541 hath set at nought H47 all my mighty H7130 men in the midst H7121 of me; He hath called H4150 a solemn assembly H7665 against me to crush H970 my young men: H136 The Lord H1869 hath trodden H1660 as in a winepress H1330 the virgin H1323 daughter H3063 of Judah.
16 H1058 For these things I weep; H5869 mine eye, H5869 mine eye H3381 runneth down H4325 with water; H5162 Because the comforter H7725 that should refresh H5315 my soul H7368 is far H1121 from me: My children H8074 are desolate, H341 because the enemy H1396 hath prevailed.
17 H6726 Zion H6566 spreadeth forth H3027 her hands; H5162 there is none to comfort H3068 her; Jehovah H6680 hath commanded H3290 concerning Jacob, H5439 that they that are round about H6862 him should be his adversaries: H3389 Jerusalem H5079 is among them as an unclean thing.
18 H3068 Jehovah H6662 is righteous; H4784 for I have rebelled H6310 against his commandment: H8085 Hear, H5971 I pray you, all ye peoples, H7200 and behold H4341 my sorrow: H1330 My virgins H970 and my young men H1980 are gone H7628 into captivity.
19 H7121 I called H157 for my lovers, H7411 but they deceived H3548 me: My priests H2205 and mine elders H1478 gave up the ghost H5892 in the city, H1245 While they sought H400 them food H7725 to refresh H5315 their souls.
20 H7200 Behold, H3068 O Jehovah; H6887 for I am in distress; H4578 my heart H2560 is troubled; H3820 My heart H2015 is turned H7130 within H4784 me; for I have grievously H4784 rebelled: H2351 Abroad H2719 the sword H7921 bereaveth, H1004 at home H4194 there is as death.
21 H8085 They have heard H584 that I sigh; H5162 there is none to comfort H341 me; all mine enemies H8085 have heard H7451 of my trouble; H7797 they are glad H6213 that thou hast done H935 it: Thou wilt bring H3117 the day H7121 that thou hast proclaimed, H3644 and they shall be like unto me.
