Lamentations 1:14-22 (Holman Christian Standard)

View In My Bible

Nun

14 My transgressions have been formed into a yoke,ab fastened together by His hand; they have been placed on my neck, and the Lord has broken my strength. He has handed me over to those I cannot withstand.

Samek

15 The Lord has rejectedc all the mighty men within me. He has summoned an armyd against me to crush my young warriors. The Lord has tramplede Virgin Daughter Judahf [like grapes] in a winepress.

Ayin

16 I weep because of these things; my eyes flowg with tears.h For there is no one nearby to comfort [me], no one to keep me alive. My children are desolate because the enemy has prevailed.

Pe

17 Zion stretches out her hands; there is no one to comfort her. The Lord has issued a decree against Jacob that his neighbors should be his adversaries. Jerusalem has become something impurei among them.

Tsade

18 The Lord is in the right, for I have rebelled against His command.j Listen, all you people; look at my pain. My young men and women have gone into captivity.

Qof

19 I called to my lovers, but they betrayed me. My priests and elders perished in the city while searching for food to keep themselves alive.

Resh

20 Lord, see how I am in distress. I am churning within;k my heart is broken,l for I have been very rebellious. Outside, the sword takes the children; inside, there is death.m

Shin

21 People have heard me groaning, but there is no one to comfort me. All my enemies have heard of my misfortune; they are glad that You have caused [it]. Bring on the day You have announced, so that they may become like me.

Tav

22 Let all their wickedness come before You, and deal with them as You have dealt with me because of all my transgressions. For my groans are many, and I am sick at heart.
