Remember, ADONAI, what has happened to us; look, and see our disgrace.
The land we possessed has been passed on to strangers, our homes to foreigners.
We have become fatherless orphans, our mothers now are widows.
We have to pay to drink our own water; we have to buy our own wood.
The yoke is on our necks; we are persecuted; we toil to exhaustion but are given no rest.
We made pacts with Egypt and Ashur to get enough food.
