1 H349 How H5892 does the city H3427 sit H910 solitary, H7227 that was full H5971 of people! H1961 how is she become H490 as a widow! H7227 she that was great H1471 among the nations, H8282 and princess H4082 among the provinces, H1961 how is she become H4522 tributary!
2 H1058 She weeps H3915 sore in the night, H1832 and her tears H5921 are on H3895 her cheeks: H3605 among all H157 her lovers H369 she has none H5162 to comfort H3605 her: all H7453 her friends H898 have dealt treacherously H1961 with her, they are become H341 her enemies.
3 H3063 Judah H1473 is gone into H1540 captivity H6040 because of affliction, H7230 and because of great H5656 servitude: H3427 she dwells H1471 among the heathen, H4672 she finds H3808 no H4494 rest: H3605 all H7291 her persecutors H5381 overtook H996 her between H4712 the straits.
4 H1870 The ways H6726 of Zion H57 do mourn, H1097 because none H935 come H4150 to the solemn H4150 feasts: H3605 all H8179 her gates H8076 are desolate: H3548 her priests H584 sigh, H1330 her virgins H3013 are afflicted, H4843 and she is in bitterness.
5 H6862 Her adversaries H7218 are the chief, H341 her enemies H7951 prosper; H3068 for the LORD H3013 has afflicted H7230 her for the multitude H6588 of her transgressions: H5768 her children H1980 are gone H7628 into captivity H6440 before H6862 the enemy.
6 H1323 And from the daughter H6726 of Zion H3605 all H1926 her beauty H3318 is departed: H8269 her princes H1961 are become H354 like harts H4672 that find H3808 no H4829 pasture, H3212 and they are gone H3808 without H3581 strength H6440 before H7291 the pursuer.
7 H3389 Jerusalem H2142 remembered H3117 in the days H6040 of her affliction H4788 and of her miseries H3605 all H4262 her pleasant H1961 things that she had H3117 in the days H6924 of old, H5971 when her people H5307 fell H3027 into the hand H6862 of the enemy, H369 and none H5826 did help H6862 her: the adversaries H7200 saw H7832 her, and did mock H5921 at H4868 her sabbaths.
8 H3389 Jerusalem H2399 has grievously H2398 sinned; H5921 therefore H3651 H5206 she is removed: H3605 all H3513 that honored H2107 her despise H3588 her, because H7200 they have seen H6172 her nakedness: H1571 yes, H584 she sighs, H7725 and turns H268 backward.
9 H2932 Her filthiness H7757 is in her skirts; H2142 she remembers H319 not her last H3381 end; therefore she came H3381 down H6382 wonderfully: H369 she had no H5162 comforter. H3068 O LORD, H7200 behold H6040 my affliction: H341 for the enemy H1431 has magnified himself.
10 H6862 The adversary H6566 has spread H3027 out his hand H3605 on all H4261 her pleasant H7200 things: for she has seen H1471 that the heathen H935 entered H4720 into her sanctuary, H834 whom H6680 you did command H935 that they should not enter H6951 into your congregation.
11 H3605 All H5971 her people H584 sigh, H1245 they seek H3899 bread; H5414 they have given H4262 their pleasant H400 things for meat H7725 to relieve H5315 the soul: H7200 see, H3068 O LORD, H5027 and consider; H1961 for I am become H2151 vile.
12 H3808 Is it nothing H3605 to you, all H5674 you that pass H5027 by? behold, H7200 and see H518 if H4341 there be any sorrow H4341 like to my sorrow, H834 which H5953 is done H834 to me, with which H3068 the LORD H3013 has afflicted H3117 me in the day H2740 of his fierce H639 anger.
13 H4791 From above H7971 has he sent H784 fire H6106 into my bones, H7287 and it prevails H6566 against them: he has spread H7568 a net H7272 for my feet, H7725 he has turned H268 me back: H5414 he has made H8076 me desolate H1739 and faint H3605 all H3117 the day.
14 H5923 The yoke H6588 of my transgressions H8244 is bound H3027 by his hand: H8276 they are wreathed, H5927 and come H6677 up on my neck: H3581 he has made my strength H3782 to fall, H136 the LORD H5414 has delivered H3027 me into their hands, H3201 from whom I am not able H6965 to rise up.
15 H136 The LORD H5541 has trodden H5541 under foot H3605 all H47 my mighty H7130 men in the middle H7121 of me: he has called H4150 an assembly H5921 against H7665 me to crush H970 my young H136 men: the LORD H1869 has trodden H1330 the virgin, H1323 the daughter H3063 of Judah, H1660 as in a wine press.
16 H428 For these H1058 things I weep; H5869 my eye, H5869 my eye H3381 runs H4325 down with water, H3588 because H5162 the comforter H7725 that should relieve H5315 my soul H7368 is far H1121 from me: my children H8076 are desolate, H3588 because H341 the enemy H1396 prevailed.
17 H6726 Zion H6566 spreads H3027 forth her hands, H369 and there is none H5162 to comfort H3068 her: the LORD H6680 has commanded H3290 concerning Jacob, H6862 that his adversaries H5439 should be round H3389 about him: Jerusalem H5079 is as a menstruous H996 woman among them.
18 H3068 The LORD H6662 is righteous; H4784 for I have rebelled H6310 against his commandment: H8085 hear, H4994 I pray H3605 you, all H5971 people, H7200 and behold H4341 my sorrow: H1330 my virgins H970 and my young H1980 men are gone H7628 into captivity.
19 H7121 I called H157 for my lovers, H7411 but they deceived H3548 me: my priests H2205 and my elders H1478 gave up the ghost H5892 in the city, H3588 while H1245 they sought H400 their meat H7725 to relieve H5315 their souls.
20 H7200 Behold, H3068 O LORD; H6887 for I am in distress: H4578 my bowels H2560 are troubled; H3820 my heart H2015 is turned H7130 within H4784 me; for I have grievously H4784 rebelled: H2351 abroad H2719 the sword H7921 bereaves, H1004 at home H4194 there is as death.
21 H8085 They have heard H584 that I sigh: H369 there is none H5162 to comfort H3605 me: all H341 my enemies H8085 have heard H7451 of my trouble; H7797 they are glad H6213 that you have done H935 it: you will bring H3117 the day H7121 that you have called, H3644 and they shall be like to me.
