Lamentations 1:4; Lamentations 1:18; Lamentations 2:10; Lamentations 2:13; Lamentations 2:21; Lamentations 5:11
The ways of Zion do mourn, because none come to the solemn feasts: all her gates are desolate : her priests sigh , her virgins are afflicted , and she is in bitterness .
The LORD is righteous; for I have rebelled against his commandment: hear , I pray you, all people, and behold my sorrow: my virgins and my young men are gone into captivity.
The elders of the daughter of Zion sit upon the ground, and keep silence : they have cast up dust upon their heads; they have girded themselves with sackcloth: the virgins of Jerusalem hang down their heads to the ground.
What thing shall I take to witness for thee? what thing shall I liken to thee, O daughter of Jerusalem? what shall I equal to thee, that I may comfort thee, O virgin daughter of Zion? for thy breach is great like the sea: who can heal thee?
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 ravished the women in Zion, and the maids in the cities of Judah.
