LAM 3:1 I `am' the man `who' hath seen affliction By the rod of His wrath.
LAM 3:2 Me He hath led, and causeth to go `in' darkness, and without light.
LAM 3:3 Surely against me He turneth back, He turneth His hand all the day.
LAM 3:4 He hath worn out my flesh and my skin. He hath broken my bones.
LAM 3:5 He hath built up against me, And setteth round poverty and weariness.
LAM 3:6 In dark places He hath caused me to dwell, As the dead of old.
LAM 3:7 He hath hedged me about, and I go not out, He hath made heavy my fetter.
LAM 3:8 Also when I call and cry out, He hath shut out my prayer.
LAM 3:9 He hath hedged my ways with hewn work, My paths He hath made crooked.
LAM 3:10 A bear lying in wait He `is' to me, A lion in secret hiding-places.
LAM 3:11 My ways He is turning aside, and He pulleth me in pieces, He hath made me a desolation.
LAM 3:12 He hath trodden His bow, And setteth me up as a mark for an arrow.
LAM 3:13 He hath caused to enter into my reins The sons of His quiver.
LAM 3:14 I have been a derision to all my people, Their song all the day.
LAM 3:15 He hath filled me with bitter things, He hath filled me `with' wormwood.
LAM 3:16 And He breaketh with gravel my teeth, He hath covered me with ashes.
LAM 3:17 And Thou castest off from peace my soul, I have forgotten prosperity.
LAM 3:18 And I say, Perished hath my strength and my hope from Jehovah.
LAM 3:19 Remember my affliction and my mourning, Wormwood and gall!
LAM 3:20 Remember well, and bow down doth my soul in me.
LAM 3:21 This I turn to my heart -- therefore I hope.
LAM 3:22 The kindnesses of Jehovah! For we have not been consumed, For not ended have His mercies.
LAM 3:23 New every morning, abundant `is' thy faithfulness.
LAM 3:24 My portion `is' Jehovah, hath my soul said, Therefore I hope for Him.
LAM 3:25 Good `is' Jehovah to those waiting for Him, To the soul `that' seeketh Him.
LAM 3:26 Good! when one doth stay and stand still For the salvation of Jehovah.
LAM 3:27 Good for a man that he beareth a yoke in his youth.
LAM 3:28 He sitteth alone, and is silent, For He hath laid `it' upon him.
LAM 3:29 He putteth in the dust his mouth, if so be there is hope.
LAM 3:30 He giveth to his smiter the cheek, He is filled with reproach.
LAM 3:31 For the Lord doth not cast off to the age.
LAM 3:32 For though He afflicted, yet He hath pitied, According to the abundance of His kindness.
LAM 3:33 For He hath not afflicted with His heart, Nor doth He grieve the sons of men.
LAM 3:34 To bruise under one's feet any bound ones of earth,
LAM 3:35 To turn aside the judgment of a man, Over-against the face of the Most High,
LAM 3:36 To subvert a man in his cause, the Lord hath not approved.
LAM 3:37 Who `is' this -- he hath said, and it is, `And' the Lord hath not commanded `it'?
LAM 3:38 From the mouth of the Most High Go not forth the evils and the good.
LAM 3:39 What -- sigh habitually doth a living man, A man for his sin?
LAM 3:40 We search our ways, and investigate, And turn back unto Jehovah.
LAM 3:41 We lift up our heart on the hands unto God in the heavens.
LAM 3:42 We -- we have transgressed and rebelled, Thou -- Thou hast not forgiven.
LAM 3:43 Thou hast covered Thyself with anger, And dost pursue us; Thou hast slain -- Thou hast not pitied.
LAM 3:44 Thou hast covered Thyself with a cloud, So that prayer doth not pass through.
LAM 3:45 Offscouring and refuse Thou dost make us In the midst of the peoples.
LAM 3:46 Opened against us their mouth have all our enemies.
LAM 3:47 Fear and a snare hath been for us, Desolation and destruction.
LAM 3:48 Rivulets of water go down my eye, For the destruction of the daughter of my people.
LAM 3:49 Mine eye is poured out, And doth not cease without intermission,
LAM 3:50 Till Jehovah looketh and seeth from the heavens,
LAM 3:51 My eye affecteth my soul, Because of all the daughters of my city.
LAM 3:52 Hunted me sore as a bird have my enemies without cause.
LAM 3:53 They have cut off in a pit my life, And they cast a stone against me.
LAM 3:54 Flowed have waters over my head, I have said, I have been cut off.
LAM 3:55 I called Thy name, O Jehovah, from the lower pit.
LAM 3:56 My voice Thou hast heard, Hide not Thine ear at my breathing -- at my cry.
LAM 3:57 Thou hast drawn near in the day I call Thee, Thou hast said, Fear not.
LAM 3:58 Thou hast pleaded, O Lord, the pleadings of my soul, Thou hast redeemed my life.
LAM 3:59 Thou hast seen, O Jehovah, my overthrow, Judge Thou my cause.
LAM 3:60 Thou hast seen all their vengeance, All their thoughts of me.
LAM 3:61 Thou hast heard their reproach, O Jehovah, All their thoughts against me,
LAM 3:62 The lips of my withstanders, Even their meditation against me all the day.
LAM 3:63 Their sitting down, and their rising up, Behold attentively, I `am' their song.
LAM 3:64 Thou returnest to them the deed, O Jehovah, According to the work of their hands.
LAM 3:65 Thou givest to them a covered heart, Thy curse to them.
LAM 3:66 Thou pursuest in anger, and destroyest them, From under the heavens of Jehovah!
