1 H136 How hath the Lord H5743 0 covered H1323 the daughter H6726 of Zion H5743 [H8686] with a cloud H639 in his anger, H7993 [H8689] and cast down H8064 from heaven H776 to the earth H8597 the beauty H3478 of Israel, H2142 [H8804] and remembered H1916 H7272 not his footstool H3117 in the day H639 of his anger!
2 H136 The Lord H1104 [H8765] hath swallowed up H4999 all the habitations H3290 of Jacob, H2550 [H8804] and hath not commiserated: H2040 [H8804] he hath thrown down H5678 in his wrath H4013 the strong holds H1323 of the daughter H3063 of Judah; H5060 [H8689] he hath brought them down H776 to the earth: H2490 [H8765] he hath polluted H4467 the kingdom H8269 and its princes.
3 H1438 [H8804] He hath cut off H2750 in his fierce H639 anger H7161 all the horn H3478 of Israel: H7725 [H8689] he hath drawn H268 back H3225 his right hand H6440 from before H341 [H8802] the enemy, H1197 [H8799] and he burned H3290 against Jacob H3852 like a flaming H784 fire, H398 [H8804] which devoureth H5439 on every side.
4 H1869 [H8804] He hath bent H7198 his bow H341 [H8802] like an enemy: H5324 [H8737] he stood H3225 with his right hand H6862 as an adversary, H2026 [H8799] and slew H4261 all that were pleasant H5869 to the eye H168 in the tent H1323 of the daughter H6726 of Zion: H8210 [H8804] he poured out H2534 his fury H784 like fire.
5 H136 The Lord H341 [H8802] was as an enemy: H1104 [H8765] he hath swallowed up H3478 Israel, H1104 [H8765] he hath swallowed up H759 all her palaces: H7843 [H8765] he hath decayed H4013 his strong holds, H7235 [H8686] and hath increased H1323 in the daughter H3063 of Judah H8386 mourning H592 and lamentation.
6 H2554 [H8799] And he hath violently taken away H7900 his pavilion, H1588 as if it were of a garden: H7843 [H8765] he hath decayed H4150 his places of the assembly: H3068 the LORD H4150 hath caused the solemn feasts H7676 and sabbaths H7911 [H8765] to be forgotten H6726 in Zion, H2195 and in the indignation H639 of his anger H5006 [H8799] hath despised H4428 the king H3548 and the priest.
7 H136 The Lord H2186 [H8804] hath cast off H4196 his altar, H5010 [H8765] he hath abhorred H4720 his sanctuary, H5462 [H8689] he hath given up H3027 into the hand H341 [H8802] of the enemy H2346 the walls H759 of her palaces; H5414 [H8804] they have made H6963 a noise H1004 in the house H3068 of the LORD, H3117 as in the day H4150 of a solemn feast.
8 H3068 The LORD H2803 [H8804] hath purposed H7843 [H8687] to decay H2346 the wall H1323 of the daughter H6726 of Zion: H5186 [H8804] he hath stretched out H6957 a line, H7725 [H8689] he hath not withdrawn H3027 his hand H1104 [H8763] from swallowing up: H2426 therefore he made the rampart H2346 and the wall H56 [H8686] to lament; H535 [H8797] they languished H3162 together.
9 H8179 Her gates H2883 [H8804] are sunk H776 into the earth; H6 [H8765] he hath destroyed H7665 [H8765] and broken H1280 her bars: H4428 her king H8269 and her princes H1471 are among the nations: H8451 the law H5030 is no more; her prophets H4672 [H8804] also find H2377 no vision H3068 from the LORD.
10 H2205 The elders H1323 of the daughter H6726 of Zion H3427 [H8799] sit H776 upon the earth, H1826 [H8799] and keep silence: H5927 [H8689] they have cast up H6083 dust H7218 upon their heads; H2296 [H8804] they have girded H8242 themselves with sackcloth: H1330 the virgins H3389 of Jerusalem H3381 [H8689] hang down H7218 their heads H776 to the earth.
11 H5869 My eyes H3615 [H8804] do fail H1832 with tears, H4578 my heart H2560 [H8777] is troubled, H3516 my liver H8210 [H8738] is poured H776 upon the earth, H7667 for the fracturing H1323 of the daughter H5971 of my people; H5768 because the children H3243 [H8802] and the sucklings H5848 [H8736] swoon H7339 in the streets H7151 of the city.
12 H559 [H8799] They say H517 to their mothers, H1715 Where is grain H3196 and wine? H5848 [H8692] when they swooned H2491 as the wounded H7339 in the streets H5892 of the city, H5315 when their breath H8210 [H8692] was poured out H517 into their mothers' H2436 bosom.
13 H5749 H5749 [H8686] What thing shall I take to witness H4100 for thee? what thing H1819 [H8762] shall I liken H1323 to thee, O daughter H3389 of Jerusalem? H7737 [H8686] what shall I equal H5162 [H8762] 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 [H8799] who can heal thee?
14 H5030 Thy prophets H2372 [H8804] have seen H7723 vain H8602 and foolish things H1540 [H8765] for thee: and they have not revealed H5771 thy perversity, H7725 [H8687] to turn away H7622 H7622 [H8675] thy captivity; H2372 [H8799] but have seen H7723 for thee false H4864 burdens H4065 and causes of banishment.
15 H5674 [H8802] All that pass H5606 [H8804] by clap H3709 their hands H1870 at thee; H8319 [H8804] they hiss H5128 [H8686] and shake H7218 their head H1323 at the daughter H3389 of Jerusalem, H5892 saying, Is this the city H559 [H8799] that men call H3632 The perfection H3308 of beauty, H4885 The joy H776 of the whole earth?
16 H341 [H8802] All thy enemies H6475 [H8804] have opened H6310 their mouth H8319 [H8804] against thee: they hiss H2786 [H8799] and gnash H8127 the teeth: H559 [H8804] they say, H1104 [H8765] We have swallowed her up: H389 certainly H3117 this is the day H6960 [H8765] that we looked for; H4672 [H8804] we have found, H7200 [H8804] we have seen it.
17 H3068 The LORD H6213 [H8804] hath done H2161 [H8804] that which he had devised; H1214 [H8765] he hath fulfilled H565 his word H6680 [H8765] that he had commanded H3117 in the days H6924 of old: H2040 [H8804] he hath thrown down, H2550 [H8804] and hath not commiserated: H341 [H8802] and he hath caused thine enemy H8055 [H8762] to rejoice H7311 [H8689] over thee, he hath set up H7161 the horn H6862 of thine adversaries.
18 H3820 Their heart H6817 [H8804] shrieked H136 to the Lord, H2346 O wall H1323 of the daughter H6726 of Zion, H1832 let tears H3381 [H8685] run down H5158 like a river H3119 day H3915 and night: H5414 [H8799] give H6314 thyself no rest; H1323 let not the apple H5869 of thy eye H1826 [H8799] cease.
19 H6965 [H8798] Arise, H7442 [H8798] ringingly cry H3915 in the night: H7218 in the beginning H821 of the watches H8210 [H8798] pour out H3820 thy heart H4325 like water H5227 before H6440 the face H136 of the Lord: H5375 [H8798] lift up H3709 thy hands H5315 toward him for the life H5768 of thy young children, H5848 [H8803] that faint H7458 for hunger H7218 at the head H2351 of every street.
20 H7200 [H8798] Behold, H3068 O LORD, H5027 [H8685] and consider H5953 [H8782] to whom thou hast done H3541 this. H802 Shall the women H398 [H8799] eat H6529 their fruit, H5768 children H2949 of a span long? H3548 shall the priest H5030 and the prophet H2026 [H8735] be slain H4720 in the sanctuary H136 of the Lord?
21 H5288 The young H2205 and the old H7901 [H8804] lie H776 on the earth H2351 in the streets: H1330 my virgins H970 and my young men H5307 [H8804] have fallen H2719 by the sword; H2026 [H8804] thou hast slain H3117 them in the day H639 of thine anger; H2873 [H8804] thou hast killed, H2550 [H8804] and not commiserated.
22 H7121 [H8799] Thou hast called H4150 as in a solemn H3117 day H4032 my terrors H5439 on every side, H3117 so that in the day H3068 of the LORD'S H639 anger H6412 none escaped H8300 nor remained: H2946 [H8765] those that I have swaddled H7235 [H8765] and brought up H341 [H8802] hath my enemy H3615 [H8765] consumed.
