Lamentations 1:20; Lamentations 2:21; Lamentations 4:9; Lamentations 5:9
Behold , O LORD; for I am in distress : my bowels are troubled ; mine heart is turned within me; for I have grievously rebelled : abroad the sword bereaveth , at home there is as death.
The young and the old lie on the ground in the streets: my virgins and my young men are fallen by the sword; thou hast slain them in the day of thine anger; thou hast killed , and not pitied .
They that be slain with the sword are better than they that be slain with hunger: for these pine away , stricken through for want of the fruits of the field.
We gat our bread with the peril of our lives because of the sword of the wilderness.
