There is no one to guide her among all the children she has raised; there is no one to take hold of her hand among all the offspring she has brought up.
These two things have happened to you: devastation and destruction, famine and sword. Who will grieve for you? How can Ia comfort you?
Your children have fainted; they lie at the head of every street like an antelope in a net. They are full of the Lord's fury, the rebuke of your God.
So listen to this, afflicted and drunken one-but not with wine.
This is what your Lord says- Yahweh, even your God, who defends His people- "Look, I have removed the cup of staggering from your hand; that goblet, the cup of My fury. You will never drink it again.
I will put it into the hands of your tormenters, who said to you: Lie down, so we can walk over you. You made your back like the ground, and like a street for those who walk on it.
