|New Living Translation (NLT)
||New International Version (NIV)
1 Jerusalem's streets, once bustling with people are now silent, like a widow broken with grief she sits alone in her morning. Once the queen of nations, she is now 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.
