A Lament over the Destruction of Jerusalem, and Prayer for Help.

1 O God, the 1nations have ainvaded 2Your inheritance ; They have defiled Your 3holy temple ; They have 4laid Jerusalem in ruins. 2 They have given the 5dead bodies of Your servants for food to the birds of the heavens, The flesh of Your godly ones to the beasts of the earth. 3 They have poured out their blood like water round about Jerusalem ; And there was 6no one to bury them. 4 We have become a 7reproach to our neighbors, A scoffing and derision to those around us. 5 8How long, O LORD ? Will You be angry forever ? Will Your 9jealousy 10burn like fire ? 6 11Pour out Your wrath upon the nations which 12do not know You, And upon the kingdoms which 13do not call upon Your name.
