There is no one to lead you, no one among your people to take you by the hand.
A double disaster has fallen on you: your land has been devastated by war, and your people have starved. There is no one to show you sympathy.
At the corner of every street your people collapse from weakness; they are like deer caught in a hunter's net. They have felt the force of God's anger.
You suffering people of Jerusalem, you that stagger as though you were drunk,
the Lord your God defends you and says, "I am taking away the cup that I gave you in my anger. You will no longer have to drink the wine that makes you stagger.
I will give it to those who oppressed you, to those who made you lie down in the streets and trampled on you as if you were dirt."
