LORD, consider what has become of us; take notice of our disgrace. Look at it!
Our property has been turned over to strangers; our houses belong to foreigners.
We have become orphans, having no father; our mothers are like widows.
We drink our own water—but for a price; we gather our own wood—but pay for it.
Our hunters have been at our necks;a we are worn out, but have no rest.
We held out a hand to Egypt and to Assyria, to get sufficient food.
