Lamentations Chapter 5

- , () -. 1 Remember, O LORD, what is come upon us; behold, and see our reproach.
, . 2 Our inheritance is turned unto strangers, our houses unto aliens.
() , . 3 We are become orphans and fatherless, our mothers are as widows.
, . 4 We have drunk our water for money; our wood cometh to us for price.
, () -. 5 To our very necks we are pursued; we labour, and have no rest.
, . 6 We have given the hand to Egypt, and to Assyria, to have bread enough;
(), () ‍ . 7 Our fathers have sinned, and are not; and we have borne their iniquities.
, . 8 Servants rule over us; there is none to deliver us out of their hand.
, . 9 We get our bread with the peril of our lives because of the sword of the wilderness.
, . 10 Our skin is hot like an oven because of the burning heat of famine.
, . 11 They have ravished the women in Zion, the maidens in the cities of Judah.
, . 12 Princes are hanged up by their hand; the faces of elders are not honoured.
, . 13 The young men have borne the mill, and the children have stumbled under the wood.
, . 14 The elders have ceased from the gate, the young men from their music.
, . 15 The joy of our heart is ceased; our dance is turned into mourning.
, - . 16 The crown is fallen from our head; woe unto us! for we have sinned.
-, ---, . 17 For this our heart is faint, for these things our eyes are dim;
- , -. {} 18 For the mountain of Zion, which is desolate, the foxes walk upon it. {P}
, . 19 Thou, O LORD, art enthroned for ever, Thy throne is from generation to generation.
, . 20 Wherefore dost Thou forget us for ever, and forsake us so long time?
(), . 21 Turn Thou us unto Thee, O LORD, and we shall be turned; renew our days as of old.
- , -. {} 22 Thou canst not have utterly rejected us, and be exceeding wroth against us! {P}
