The people’s complaint

1 LORD, consider what has become of us; take notice of our disgrace. Look at it! 2 Our property has been turned over to strangers; our houses belong to foreigners. 3 We have become orphans, having no father; our mothers are like widows. 4 We drink our own water—but for a price; we gather our own wood—but pay for it. 5 Our hunters have been at our necks;a we are worn out, but have no rest. 6 We held out a hand to Egypt and to Assyria, to get sufficient food.
