Lamentations 1:11-12; Lamentations 2:20; Lamentations 3:63; Lamentations 4:16; Lamentations 5:1
All her people groan seeking bread; They have given their precious things for food To restore their lives themselves. "See, O LORD , and look, For I am despised."
"Is it nothing to all you who pass this way? Look and see if there is any pain like my pain Which was severely dealt out to me, Which the LORD inflicted on the day of His fierce anger.
See, O LORD , and look! With whom have You dealt thus? Should women eat their offspring, The little ones who were born healthy? Should priest and prophet be slain In the sanctuary of the Lord ?
Look on their sitting and their rising; I am their mocking song.
The presence of the LORD has scattered them, He will not continue to regard them; They did not honor the priests, They did not favor the elders.
Remember, O LORD , what has befallen us; Look, and see our reproach!
