|The Message (MSG)
||New International Version (NIV)
1 I wish my head were a well of water and my eyes fountains of tears So I could weep day and night for casualties among my dear, dear people.
1 Oh, that my head were a spring of water and my eyes a fountain of tears! I would weep day and night for the slain of my people.
