|New Century Version (NCV)
||New International Version (NIV)
1 Jerusalem once was full of people, but now the city is empty. Jerusalem once was a great city among the nations, but now shen is like a widow. She was like a queen of all the other cities, but now she is a slave.
1 How deserted lies the city, once so full of people! How like a widow is she, who once was great among the nations! She who was queen among the provinces has now become a slave.
