1 H136 How hath the Lord H5743 covered H1323 the daughter H6726 of Zion H5743 with a cloud H639 in his anger! H7993 He hath cast down H8064 from heaven H776 unto the earth H8597 the beauty H3478 of Israel, H2142 And hath not remembered H1916 his footstool H3117 in the day H639 of his anger.
2 H136 The Lord H1104 hath swallowed up H4999 all the habitations H3290 of Jacob, H2550 and hath not pitied: H2040 He hath thrown down H5678 in his wrath H4013 the strongholds H1323 of the daughter H3063 of Judah; H5060 He hath brought them down H776 to the ground; H2490 he hath profaned H4467 the kingdom H8269 and the princes thereof.
3 H1438 He hath cut off H2750 in fierce H639 anger H7161 all the horn H3478 of Israel; H7725 He hath drawn H268 back H3225 his right hand H6440 from before H341 the enemy: H1197 And he hath burned H3290 up Jacob H3852 like a flaming H784 fire, H398 which devoureth H5439 round about.
4 H1869 He hath bent H7198 his bow H341 like an enemy, H5324 he hath stood H3225 with his right hand H6862 as an adversary, H2026 And hath slain H4261 all that were pleasant H5869 to the eye: H168 In the tent H1323 of the daughter H6726 of Zion H8210 he hath poured out H2534 his wrath H784 like fire.
5 H136 The Lord H341 is become as an enemy, H1104 he hath swallowed up H3478 Israel; H1104 He hath swallowed up H759 all her palaces, H7843 he hath destroyed H4013 his strongholds; H7235 And he hath multiplied H1323 in the daughter H3063 of Judah H8386 mourning H592 and lamentation.
6 H2554 And he hath violently taken away H7900 his tabernacle, H1588 as if it were of a garden; H7843 he hath destroyed H4150 his place of assembly: H3068 Jehovah H4150 hath caused solemn assembly H7676 and sabbath H7911 to be forgotten H6726 in Zion, H5006 And hath despised H2195 in the indignation H639 of his anger H4428 the king H3548 and the priest.
7 H136 The Lord H2186 hath cast off H4196 his altar, H5010 he hath abhorred H4720 his sanctuary; H5462 He hath given up H3027 into the hand H341 of the enemy H2346 the walls H759 of her palaces: H5414 They have made H6963 a noise H1004 in the house H3068 of Jehovah, H3117 as in the day H4150 of a solemn assembly.
8 H3068 Jehovah H2803 hath purposed H7843 to destroy H2346 the wall H1323 of the daughter H6726 of Zion; H5186 He hath stretched out H6957 the line, H7725 he hath not withdrawn H3027 his hand H1104 from destroying; H2426 And he hath made the rampart H2346 and wall H56 to lament; H535 they languish H3162 together.
9 H8179 Her gates H2883 are sunk H776 into the ground; H6 he hath destroyed H7665 and broken H1280 her bars: H4428 Her king H8269 and her princes H1471 are among the nations H8451 where the law H5030 is not; Yea, her prophets H4672 find H2377 no vision H3068 from Jehovah.
10 H2205 The elders H1323 of the daughter H6726 of Zion H3427 sit H776 upon the ground, H1826 they keep silence; H5927 They have cast up H6083 dust H7218 upon their heads; H2296 They have girded H8242 themselves with sackcloth: H1330 The virgins H3389 of Jerusalem H3381 hang down H7218 their heads H776 to the ground.
11 H5869 Mine eyes H3615 do fail H1832 with tears, H4578 my heart H2560 is troubled; H3516 My liver H8210 is poured H776 upon the earth, H7667 because of the destruction H1323 of the daughter H5971 of my people, H5768 Because the young children H3243 and the sucklings H5848 swoon H7339 in the streets H7151 of the city.
12 H559 They say H517 to their mothers, H1715 Where is grain H3196 and wine? H5848 When they swoon H2491 as the wounded H7339 in the streets H5892 of the city, H5315 When their soul H8210 is poured out H517 into their mothers' H2436 bosom.
13 H5749 What shall I testify H4100 unto thee? what H1819 shall I liken H1323 to thee, O daughter H3389 of Jerusalem? H7737 What shall I compare H5162 to thee, that I may comfort H1330 thee, O virgin H1323 daughter H6726 of Zion? H7667 For thy breach H1419 is great H3220 like the sea: H7495 who can heal thee?
14 H5030 Thy prophets H2372 have seen H7723 for thee false H8602 and foolish visions; H1540 And they have not uncovered H5771 thine iniquity, H7725 to bring back H7622 thy captivity, H2372 But have seen H7723 for thee false H4864 oracles H4065 and causes of banishment.
15 H5674 All that pass H5606 by clap H3709 their hands H1870 at thee; H8319 They hiss H5128 and wag H7218 their head H1323 at the daughter H3389 of Jerusalem, H5892 saying, Is this the city H559 that men called H3632 The perfection H3308 of beauty, H4885 The joy H776 of the whole earth?
16 H341 All thine enemies H6475 have opened H6310 their mouth H8319 wide against thee; They hiss H2786 and gnash H8127 the teeth; H559 they say, H1104 We have swallowed her up; H389 Certainly H3117 this is the day H6960 that we looked for; H4672 we have found, H7200 we have seen it.
17 H3068 Jehovah H6213 hath done H2161 that which he purposed; H1214 He hath fulfilled H565 his word H6680 that he commanded H3117 in the days H6924 of old; H2040 He hath thrown down, H2550 and hath not pitied: H341 And he hath caused the enemy H8055 to rejoice H7311 over thee; He hath exalted H7161 the horn H6862 of thine adversaries.
18 H3820 Their heart H6817 cried H136 unto the Lord: H2346 O wall H1323 of the daughter H6726 of Zion, H1832 let tears H3381 run down H5158 like a river H3119 day H3915 and night; H5414 Give H6314 thyself no respite; H1323 let not the apple H5869 of thine eye H1826 cease.
19 H6965 Arise, H7442 cry out H3915 in the night, H7218 at the beginning H821 of the watches; H8210 Pour out H3820 thy heart H4325 like water H5227 before H6440 the face H136 of the Lord: H5375 Lift up H3709 thy hands H5315 toward him for the life H5768 of thy young children, H5848 that faint H7458 for hunger H7218 at the head H2351 of every street.
20 H7200 See, H3068 O Jehovah, H7200 and behold H5953 to whom thou hast done H3541 thus! H802 Shall the women H398 eat H6529 their fruit, H5768 the children H2949 that are dandled H3548 in the hands? Shall the priest H5030 and the prophet H2026 be slain H4720 in the sanctuary H136 of the Lord?
21 H5288 The youth H2205 and the old H7901 man lie H776 on the ground H2351 in the streets; H1330 My virgins H970 and my young men H5307 are fallen H2719 by the sword: H2026 Thou hast slain H3117 them in the day H639 of thine anger; H2873 Thou hast slaughtered, H2550 and not pitied.
22 H7121 Thou hast called, H3117 as in the day H4150 of a solemn H4032 assembly, my terrors H5439 on every side; H6412 And there was none that escaped H8300 or remained H3117 in the day H3068 of Jehovah's H639 anger: H2946 Those that I have dandled H7235 and brought up H341 hath mine enemy H3615 consumed.
