Revised Standard Version (RSV) New International Version (NIV)
1 Hear this word which I take up over you in lamentation, O house of Israel: 1 Hear this word, O house of Israel, this lament I take up concerning you:
2 "Fallen, no more to rise, is the virgin Israel; forsaken on her land, with none to raise her up." 2 "Fallen is Virgin Israel, never to rise again, deserted in her own land, with no one to lift her up."
3 For thus says the Lord GOD: "The city that went forth a thousand shall have a hundred left, and that which went forth a hundred shall have ten left to the house of Israel." 3 This is what the Sovereign LORD says: "The city that marches out a thousand strong for Israel will have only a hundred left; the town that marches out a hundred strong will have only ten left."
