Lamentations 3:1-6 NLT/NIV - Online Parallel Bible

New Living Translation (NLT) New International Version (NIV)
1 I am the one who has seen the afflictions that come from the rod of the LORD's anger. 1 I am the man who has seen affliction by the rod of his wrath.
2 He has brought me into deep darkness, shutting out all light. 2 He has driven me away and made me walk in darkness rather than light;
3 He has turned against me. Day and night his hand is heavy upon me. 3 indeed, he has turned his hand against me again and again, all day long.
4 He has made my skin and flesh grow old. He has broken my bones. 4 He has made my skin and my flesh grow old and has broken my bones.
5 He has attacked me and surrounded me with anguish and distress. 5 He has besieged me and surrounded me with bitterness and hardship.
6 He has buried me in a dark place, like a person long dead. 6 He has made me dwell in darkness like those long dead.
