Lamentations 5

1 2 3 4 5
LAM 5:1 Remember, O LORD, what is come upon us: consider, and behold our reproach.

LAM 5:2 Our inheritance is turned to strangers, our houses to aliens.

LAM 5:3 We are orphans and fatherless, our mothers are as widows.

LAM 5:4 We have drank our water for money; our wood is sold to us.

LAM 5:5 Our necks are under persecution: we labor, and have no rest.

LAM 5:6 We have given the hand to the Egyptians, and to the Assyrians, to be satisfied with bread.

LAM 5:7 Our fathers have sinned, and are not; and we have borne their iniquities.

LAM 5:8 Servants have ruled over us: there is none that doth deliver us out of their hand.

LAM 5:9 We procured our bread with the peril of our lives, because of the sword of the wilderness.

LAM 5:10 Our skin was black like an oven because of the terrible famine.

LAM 5:11 They ravished the women in Zion, and the maids in the cities of Judah.

LAM 5:12 Princes were hanged by their hand: the faces of elders were not honored.

LAM 5:13 They took the young men to grind, and the children fell under 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 hath ceased; our dance is turned into mourning.

LAM 5:16 The crown is fallen from our head: woe to us, that we have sinned!

LAM 5:17 For this our heart is faint; for these things our eyes are dim.

LAM 5:18 Because of the mountain of Zion, which is desolate, the foxes walk upon it.

LAM 5:19 Thou, O LORD, remainest for ever; thy throne from generation to generation.

LAM 5:20 Why dost thou forget us for ever, and forsake us so long time?

LAM 5:21 Turn thou us to thee, O LORD, and we shall be turned; renew our days as of old.

LAM 5:22 But thou hast utterly rejected us; thou art very wroth against us.
