Lamentations 5:1-6 GNT

1 Remember, O Lord, what has happened to us. Look at us, and see our disgrace.
2 Our property is in the hands of strangers; foreigners are living in our homes.
3 Our fathers have been killed by the enemy, and now our mothers are widows.
4 We must pay for the water we drink; we must buy the wood we need for fuel.
5 Driven hard like donkeys or camels, we are tired, but are allowed no rest.
6 To get food enough to stay alive, we went begging to Egypt and Assyria.
