Remember, Lord, what happened to us. Look and see our disgrace.
Our land has been turned over to strangers; our houses have been given to foreigners.
We are like orphans with no father; our mothers are like widows.
We have to buy the water we drink; we must pay for the firewood.
Those who chase after us want to catch us by the neck. We are tired and find no rest.
We made an agreement with Egypt and with Assyria to get enough food.
Our ancestors sinned against you, but they are gone; now we suffer because of their sins.
