1 H5892 How doth the city H3427 sit [H8804] H910 solitary H7227 , that was full H5971 of people H490 ! how is she become as a widow H7227 ! she that was great H1471 among the nations H8282 , and princess H4082 among the provinces H4522 , how is she become tributary!
2 H1058 She weepeth [H8799] H1058 sore [H8800] H3915 in the night H1832 , and her tears H3895 are on her cheeks H157 : among all her lovers [H8802] H5162 she hath none to comfort [H8764] H7453 her : all her friends H898 have dealt treacherously [H8804] H341 with her, they are become her enemies [H8802] .
3 H3063 Judah H1540 is gone into captivity [H8804] H6040 because of affliction H7230 , and because of great H5656 servitude H3427 : she dwelleth [H8804] H1471 among the heathen H4672 , she findeth [H8804] H4494 no rest H7291 : all her persecutors [H8802] H5381 overtook [H8689] H4712 her between the straits.
4 H1870 The ways H6726 of Zion H57 do mourn H935 , because none come [H8802] H4150 to the solemn feasts H8179 : all her gates H8074 are desolate [H8802] H3548 : her priests H584 sigh [H8737] H1330 , her virgins H3013 are afflicted [H8737] H4843 , and she is in bitterness [H8804] .
5 H6862 Her adversaries H7218 are the chief H341 , her enemies [H8802] H7951 prosper [H8804] H3068 ; for the LORD H3013 hath afflicted [H8689] H7230 her for the multitude H6588 of her transgressions H5768 : her children H1980 are gone [H8804] H7628 into captivity H6440 before H6862 the enemy.
6 H1323 And from the daughter H6726 of Zion H1926 all her beauty H3318 is departed [H8799] H8269 : her princes H354 are become like harts H4672 that find [H8804] H4829 no pasture H3212 , and they are gone [H8799] H3581 without strength H6440 before H7291 the pursuer [H8802] .
7 H3389 Jerusalem H2142 remembered [H8804] H3117 in the days H6040 of her affliction H4788 and of her miseries H4262 all her pleasant things H3117 that she had in the days H6924 of old H5971 , when her people H5307 fell [H8800] H3027 into the hand H6862 of the enemy H5826 , and none did help [H8802] H6862 her: the adversaries H7200 saw [H8804] H7832 her, and did mock [H8804] H4868 at her sabbaths.
8 H3389 Jerusalem H2399 hath grievously H2398 sinned [H8804] H5206 ; therefore she is removed H3513 : all that honoured [H8764] H2107 her despise [H8689] H7200 her, because they have seen [H8804] H6172 her nakedness H584 : yea, she sigheth [H8738] H7725 , and turneth [H8799] H268 backward.
9 H2932 Her filthiness H7757 is in her skirts H2142 ; she remembereth [H8804] H319 not her last end H3381 ; therefore she came down [H8799] H6382 wonderfully H5162 : she had no comforter [H8764] H3068 . O LORD H7200 , behold [H8798] H6040 my affliction H341 : for the enemy [H8802] H1431 hath magnified [H8689] himself .
10 H6862 The adversary H6566 hath spread out [H8804] H3027 his hand H4261 upon all her pleasant things H7200 : for she hath seen [H8804] H1471 that the heathen H935 entered [H8804] H4720 into her sanctuary H6680 , whom thou didst command [H8765] H935 that they should not enter [H8799] H6951 into thy congregation.
11 H5971 All her people H584 sigh [H8737] H1245 , they seek [H8764] H3899 bread H5414 ; they have given [H8804] H4261 their pleasant things [H8675] H4262 H400 for meat H7725 to relieve [H8687] H5315 the soul H7200 : see [H8798] H3068 , O LORD H5027 , and consider [H8685] H2151 ; for I am become vile [H8802] .
12 H5674 Is it nothing to you, all ye that pass [H8802] H1870 by H5027 ? behold [H8685] H7200 , and see [H8798] H3426 if there be H4341 any sorrow H4341 like unto my sorrow H5953 , which is done [H8776] H3068 unto me, wherewith the LORD H3013 hath afflicted [H8689] H3117 me in the day H2740 of his fierce H639 anger.
13 H4791 From above H7971 hath he sent [H8804] H784 fire H6106 into my bones H7287 , and it prevaileth [H8799] H6566 against them: he hath spread [H8804] H7568 a net H7272 for my feet H7725 , he hath turned [H8689] H268 me back H5414 : he hath made [H8804] H8074 me desolate [H8802] H1739 and faint H3117 all the day.
14 H5923 The yoke H6588 of my transgressions H8244 is bound [H8738] H3027 by his hand H8276 : they are wreathed [H8691] H5927 , and come up [H8804] H6677 upon my neck H3581 : he hath made my strength H3782 to fall [H8689] H136 , the Lord H5414 hath delivered [H8804] H3027 me into their hands H3201 , from whom I am not able [H8799] H6965 to rise up [H8800] .
15 H136 The Lord H5541 hath trodden under foot [H8765] H47 all my mighty H7130 men in the midst H7121 of me: he hath called [H8804] H4150 an assembly H7665 against me to crush [H8800] H970 my young men H136 : the Lord H1869 hath trodden [H8804] H1330 the virgin H1323 , the daughter H3063 of Judah H1660 , as in a winepress.
16 H1058 For these things I weep [H8802] H5869 ; mine eye H5869 , mine eye H3381 runneth down [H8802] H4325 with water H5162 , because the comforter [H8764] H7725 that should relieve [H8688] H5315 my soul H7368 is far [H8804] H1121 from me: my children H8074 are desolate [H8802] H341 , because the enemy [H8802] H1396 prevailed [H8804] .
17 H6726 Zion H6566 spreadeth forth [H8765] H3027 her hands H5162 , and there is none to comfort [H8764] H3068 her: the LORD H6680 hath commanded [H8765] H3290 concerning Jacob H6862 , that his adversaries H5439 should be round about H3389 him: Jerusalem H5079 is as a menstruous woman among them.
18 H3068 The LORD H6662 is righteous H4784 ; for I have rebelled [H8804] H6310 against his commandment H8085 : hear [H8798] H5971 , I pray you, all people H7200 , and behold [H8798] H4341 my sorrow H1330 : my virgins H970 and my young men H1980 are gone [H8804] H7628 into captivity.
19 H7121 I called [H8804] H157 for my lovers [H8764] H7411 , but they deceived [H8765] H3548 me: my priests H2205 and mine elders H1478 gave up the ghost [H8804] H5892 in the city H1245 , while they sought [H8765] H400 their meat H7725 to relieve [H8686] H5315 their souls.
20 H7200 Behold [H8798] H3068 , O LORD H6887 ; for I am in distress [H8804] H4578 : my bowels H2560 are troubled [H8777] H3820 ; mine heart H2015 is turned [H8738] H7130 within H4784 me; for I have grievously [H8800] H4784 rebelled [H8804] H2351 : abroad H2719 the sword H7921 bereaveth [H8765] H1004 , at home H4194 there is as death.
21 H8085 They have heard [H8804] H584 that I sigh [H8737] H5162 : there is none to comfort [H8764] H341 me: all mine enemies [H8802] H8085 have heard [H8804] H7451 of my trouble H7797 ; they are glad [H8804] H6213 that thou hast done [H8804] H935 it : thou wilt bring [H8689] H3117 the day H7121 that thou hast called [H8804] H3644 , and they shall be like unto me.
