A song of lament

1 Hear this word—a funeral song—that I am lifting up against you, house of Israel:
2 Fallen, no more to rise, is virgin Israel, deserted on her land, with no one to raise her up.
3 The LORD God proclaims: The city that marched out one thousand people will have one hundred left, and the city that marched out one hundred will have ten left in the house of Israel.
