King James Version (KJV) New International Version (NIV)
8 Jerusalem hath grievously sinned ; therefore she is removed: all that honoured her despise her, because they have seen her nakedness: yea, she sigheth , and turneth backward. 8 Jerusalem has sinned greatly and so has become unclean. All who honored her despise her, for they have seen her nakedness; she herself groans and turns away.
9 Her filthiness is in her skirts; she remembereth not her last end; therefore she came down wonderfully: she had no comforter . O LORD, behold my affliction: for the enemy hath magnified himself. 9 Her filthiness clung to her skirts; she did not consider her future. Her fall was astounding; there was none to comfort her. "Look, O LORD, on my affliction, for the enemy has triumphed."
