Lamentations 5:1-6 GW

1 "Remember, O LORD, what has happened to us. Take a look at our disgrace!
2 "The land we inherited has been turned over to strangers. Our homes have been turned over to foreigners.
3 We are orphans without a father. Our mothers are like widows.
4 We have to pay to drink our own water. We have to pay to chop our own wood.
5 [Our enemies] are breathing down our necks. We are worn out [and] not permitted to rest.
6 We had to beg Egypt and Assyria for food.
