Lamentations 4:17-22 (English Standard Version)

View In My Bible
17 1Our eyes failed, ever watching 2vainly for help; in our watching we watched for 3a nation which could not save. 18 4They dogged our steps so that we could not walk in our streets; 5our end drew near; our days were numbered, for our end had come. 19 Our pursuers were 6swifter than the eagles in the heavens; they chased us on the mountains; they lay in wait for us in the wilderness. 20 7The breath of our nostrils, 8the LORD's anointed, was captured 9in their pits, of whom we said, 10"Under his shadow we shall live among the nations." 21 11Rejoice and be glad, O daughter of Edom, you who dwell in 12the land of Uz; but to you also 13the cup shall pass; you shall become drunk and strip yourself bare. 22 14The punishment of your iniquity, O daughter of Zion, is accomplished; he will keep you in exile no longer;a but 15your iniquity, O daughter of Edom, he will punish; he will uncover your sins.
