Lamentations 5

Lam 5:1 O Jehovah, remember what has been to us; look upon and see our reproach.
Lam 5:2 Our inheritance has been turned to aliens, our houses to foreigners.
Lam 5:3 We are orphans. There is no father; our mothers are like widows.
Lam 5:4 We have drunk our water for silver; our wood comes for a price.
Lam 5:5 We are pursued; we grow weary; rest is not given to us.
Lam 5:6 We have given the hand to the Egyptians, to the Assyrian, in order to be satisfied with bread.
Lam 5:7 Our fathers have sinned, and are not; we have borne their iniquities.
Lam 5:8 Slaves rule over us; there is no rescuer from their hand.
Lam 5:9 We bring in our bread with our souls, from the face of the sword of the wilderness.
Lam 5:10 Our skin is burned black like an oven, because of the fever heat of famine.
Lam 5:11 They raped the women in Zion, virgins in the cities of Judah.
Lam 5:12 Rulers were hanged by their hands; the faces of the elders were not honored.
Lam 5:13 They lifted the young men to the hand mill, and the youths stumbled at the wood.
Lam 5:14 The elders have ceased from the gate, the young men from their music.
Lam 5:15 The joy of our heart has ceased; our dance has turned to mourning.
Lam 5:16 The crown has fallen from our head. Woe now to us, for we have sinned!
Lam 5:17 For this our heart is faint; our eyes are dim for these things.
Lam 5:18 Zion is laid waste on the mountain; foxes walk about on it.
Lam 5:19 O Jehovah, You remain forever; Your throne to generation and generation.
Lam 5:20 Why do You forget us forever, forsake us the length of days?
Lam 5:21 Return us to You, O Jehovah, and we shall return. Renew our days as of old,
Lam 5:22 for You have utterly rejected us; You are exceedingly angry against us.

On this day...
