And it came to pass, when I heard these words
This sad and melancholy account of things:
that I sat down and wept, and mourned certain days;
sat down upon the ground in dust and ashes, after the manner of mourners, and wept bitterly, and mourned in a most sorrowful manner, see ( Job 2:8 Job 2:12 Job 2:13 ) ,
and fasted and prayed before the God of heaven;
that made it, and dwells in it.
