Lamentations 5


5:1 Remember, O LORD, what is come upon us: consider, and behold
 our reproach.
5:2 Our inheritance is turned to strangers, our houses to
 aliens.
5:3 We are orphans and fatherless, our mothers [are] as widows.
5:4 We have drank our water for money; our wood is sold to us.
5:5 Our necks [are] under persecution: we labor, [and] have no
 rest.
5:6 We have given the hand [to] the Egyptians, [and to] the
 Assyrians, to be satisfied with bread.
5:7 Our fathers have sinned, [and are] not; and we have borne
 their iniquities.
5:8 Servants have ruled over us: [there is] none that doth
 deliver [us] out of their hand.
5:9 We procured our bread with [the peril of] our lives, because
 of the sword of the wilderness.
5:10 Our skin was black like an oven because of the terrible
 famine.
5:11 They ravished the women in Zion, [and] the maids in the
 cities of Judah.
5:12 Princes were hanged by their hand: the faces of elders were
 not honored.
5:13 They took the young men to grind, and the children fell
 under the wood.
5:14 The elders have ceased from the gate, the young men from
 their music.
5:15 The joy of our heart hath ceased; our dance is turned into
 mourning.
5:16 The crown is fallen [from] our head: woe to us, that we
 have sinned!
5:17 For this our heart is faint; for these [things] our eyes
 are dim.
5:18 Because of the mountain of Zion, which is desolate, the
 foxes walk upon it.
5:19 Thou, O LORD, remainest for ever; thy throne from
 generation to generation.
5:20 Why dost thou forget us for ever, [and] forsake us so long
 time?
5:21 Turn thou us to thee, O LORD, and we shall be turned; renew
 our days as of old.
5:22 But thou hast utterly rejected us; thou art very wroth
 against us.
