1How the Lord has 1covered the daughter of Zion With a cloud in His anger ! He has 2cast from heaven to earth The 3glory of Israel, And has not remembered His 4footstool In the day of His anger.
The Lord has 5swallowed up; He has not sparedAll the habitations of Jacob. In His wrath He has 6throwndown The strongholds of the daughter of Judah ; He has 7brought them down to the ground ; He has 8profaned the kingdom and its princes.
In fierceanger He has cutoffaAll the 9strength of Israel ; He has 10drawnback His righthand From before the enemy. And He has 11burned in Jacob like a flamingfireConsumingroundabout.
He has bent His 12bow like an enemy ; He has set His righthand like an adversary And slainall that were 13pleasant to the eye ; In the tent of the daughter of Zion He has 14poured out His wrath like fire.
The Lord has become like an 15enemy. He has 16swallowed up Israel ; He has swallowed up all its 17palaces, He has destroyed its strongholds And 18multiplied in the daughter of JudahMourning and moaning.
And He has violentlytreated His btabernacle like a garden booth; He has 19destroyed His appointedcmeetingplace. The LORD has 20caused to be forgotten The appointedfeast and sabbath in Zion, And He has 21despisedking and priest In the indignation of His anger.
The Lord has 22rejected His altar, He has abandoned His sanctuary ; He 23has delivered into the hand of the enemy The walls of her palaces. They have made a 24noise in the house of the LORD As in the day of an appointedfeast.
