Lamentations 1:1-6 KJV

1 How doth the city sit solitary, that was full of people! how is she become as a widow! she that was great among the nations, and princess among the provinces, how is she become tributary!
2 She weepeth sore in the night, and her tears are on her cheeks: among all her lovers she hath none to comfort her: all her friends have dealt treacherously with her, they are become her enemies .
3 Judah is gone into captivity because of affliction, and because of greata servitude: she dwelleth among the heathen, she findeth no rest: all her persecutors overtook her between the straits.
