View In My Bible

The Lord is Angry

1 How, {in his anger},a the Lord has covered the daughter of Zion in a cloud! He has thrown down from heavens [to] earth the splendor of Israel, and he has not remembered his footstool in the day of {his anger}.b 2 The Lord has devoured; he has not shown mercy to all the dwellings of Jacob; he has broken down in his wrath the fortifications of the daughter of Judah; he has leveled to the ground, he has dishonored the kingdom and its commanders.c 3 He has cut down {in fierce anger}d all the might of Israel; he has withdrawn his right hand from the faces of [the] enemy, and he has burned in Jacob like a flaming fire, it has consumed all around. 4 He has bent his bow like an enemy; he has set his right hand like a foe, and he has slain all [the] treasures of [the] eye;e in the tent of the daughter of Zion, he has poured out his anger like fire. 5 The Lord has become like an enemy; he has destroyed Israel; he has destroyed all its citadel fortresses;f he has ruined all its fortifications and multiplied lamentation and mourning in the daughter of Judah. 6 He has broken down {his dwelling}g place like the garden; he has ruined his appointed feasts; Yahweh has made [them] forget in Zion {festival}h and Sabbath, and he has despised in his anger king and priest.
