Lamentations 5

1 - Remember, O LORD, what is come upon us: consider, and behold our reproach.

2 - Our inheritance is turned to strangers, our houses to aliens.

3 - We are orphans and fatherless, our mothers are as widows.

4 - We have drunken our water for money; our wood is sold unto us.

5 - Our necks are under persecution: we labour, and have no rest.

6 - We have given the hand to the Egyptians, and to the Assyrians, to be satisfied with bread.

7 - Our fathers have sinned, and are not; and we have borne their iniquities.

8 - Servants have ruled over us: there is none that doth deliver us out of their hand.

9 - We gat our bread with the peril of our lives because of the sword of the wilderness.

10 - Our skin was black like an oven because of the terrible famine.

11 - They ravished the women in Zion, and the maids in the cities of Judah.

12 - Princes are hanged up by their hand: the faces of elders were not honoured.

13 - They took the young men to grind, and the children fell under the wood.

14 - The elders have ceased from the gate, the young men from their musick.

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, that we have sinned!

17 - For this our heart is faint; for these things our eyes are dim.

18 - Because of the mountain of Zion, which is desolate, the foxes walk upon it.

19 - Thou, O LORD, remainest for ever; thy throne 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 - But thou hast utterly rejected us; thou art very wroth against us.
