The Sorrows of Zion

1 How 1lonely sits the city That was 2full of people! She has become like a 3widow Who was once 4great among the nations! She who was a princess among the aprovinces Has become a 5forced laborer! 2 She 6weeps bitterly in the night And her tears are on her cheeks; She has none to comfort her Among all her 7lovers. All her friends have 8dealt treacherously with her; They have become her enemies. 3 9Judah has gone into exile bunder affliction And cunder dharsh servitude; She dwells 10among the nations, But she has found no rest; All 11her pursuers have overtaken her In the midst of edistress. 4 The roads fof Zion are in mourning Because 12no one comes to the appointed feasts. All her gates are 13desolate; Her priests are groaning, Her 14virgins are afflicted, And she herself gis 15bitter. 5 Her adversaries have become hher masters, Her enemies iprosper; For the LORD has 16caused her grief Because of the multitude of her transgressions; Her little ones have gone away As captives before the adversary. 6 All her 17majesty Has departed from the daughter of Zion; Her princes have become like deer That have found no pasture; And they have j18fled without strength Before the pursuer.
