``Seek Me that You May Live"

1 Hear this word which I take up for you as a 1dirge, O house of Israel:
2 She has fallen, she will 2not rise again - The 3virgin Israel. She lies neglected on her land; There is 4none to raise her up.
3 For thus says the Lord GOD, "The city which goes forth a thousand strong Will have a 5hundred left, And the one which goes forth a hundred strong Will have 6ten left to the house of Israel."
