"We have sinned and rebelled1 and you have not forgiven.243
"You have covered yourself with anger and pursued3 us; you have slain without pity.444
You have covered yourself with a cloud5 so that no prayer6 can get through.745
You have made us scum8 and refuse among the nations.
"All our enemies have opened their mouths wide9 against us.1047
We have suffered terror and pitfalls,11 ruin and destruction.12"
Streams of tears13 flow from my eyes14 because my people are destroyed.1549
My eyes will flow unceasingly, without relief,1650
until the LORD looks down from heaven and sees.1751
What I see brings grief to my soul because of all the women of my city.
Those who were my enemies without cause hunted me like a bird.1853
They tried to end my life in a pit19 and threw stones at me;
the waters closed over my head,20 and I thought I was about to be cut off.21
