Lamentations 3

DBY 1 I am the man that hath seen affliction by the rod of his wrath. NIV 1 I am the man who has seen affliction by the rod of his wrath. DBY 2 Me hath he led, and brought into darkness, and not into light. NIV 2 He has driven me away and made me walk in darkness rather than light; DBY 3 Surely against me hath he turned again and again his hand all the day. NIV 3 indeed, he has turned his hand against me again and again, all day long. DBY 4 My flesh and my skin hath he wasted away, he hath broken my bones. NIV 4 He has made my skin and my flesh grow old and has broken my bones. DBY 5 He hath built against me, and encompassed [me] with gall and toil. NIV 5 He has besieged me and surrounded me with bitterness and hardship. DBY 6 He hath made me to dwell in dark places as those that have been long dead. NIV 6 He has made me dwell in darkness like those long dead. DBY 7 He hath hedged me about that I cannot get out: he hath made my chain heavy. NIV 7 He has walled me in so I cannot escape; he has weighed me down with chains. DBY 8 Even when I cry and shout, he shutteth out my prayer. NIV 8 Even when I call out or cry for help, he shuts out my prayer. DBY 9 He hath inclosed my ways with hewn stone, he hath made my paths crooked. NIV 9 He has barred my way with blocks of stone; he has made my paths crooked. DBY 10 He is unto me [as] a bear lying in wait, a lion in secret places. NIV 10 Like a bear lying in wait, like a lion in hiding, DBY 11 He hath turned aside my ways, and pulled me in pieces; he hath made me desolate. NIV 11 he dragged me from the path and mangled me and left me without help. DBY 12 He hath bent his bow, and set me as a mark for the arrow. NIV 12 He drew his bow and made me the target for his arrows. DBY 13 He hath caused the arrows of his quiver to enter into my reins. NIV 13 He pierced my heart with arrows from his quiver. DBY 14 I am become a derision to all my people; their song all the day. NIV 14 I became the laughingstock of all my people; they mock me in song all day long. DBY 15 He hath sated me with bitterness, he hath made me drunk with wormwood. NIV 15 He has filled me with bitter herbs and sated me with gall. DBY 16 He hath also broken my teeth with gravel stones, he hath covered me with ashes. NIV 16 He has broken my teeth with gravel; he has trampled me in the dust. DBY 17 And thou hast removed my soul far off from peace: I have forgotten prosperity. NIV 17 I have been deprived of peace; I have forgotten what prosperity is. DBY 18 And I said, My strength is perished, and my hope in Jehovah. NIV 18 So I say, "My splendor is gone and all that I had hoped from the LORD." DBY 19 Remember thou mine affliction and my wandering, the wormwood and the gall. NIV 19 I remember my affliction and my wandering, the bitterness and the gall. DBY 20 My soul hath [them] constantly in remembrance, and is humbled in me. NIV 20 I well remember them, and my soul is downcast within me. DBY 21 -- This I recall to heart, therefore have I hope. NIV 21 Yet this I call to mind and therefore I have hope: DBY 22 It is of Jehovah's loving-kindness we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not; NIV 22 Because of the LORD's great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. DBY 23 they are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness. NIV 23 They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. DBY 24 Jehovah is my portion, saith my soul; therefore will I hope in him. NIV 24 I say to myself, "The LORD is my portion; therefore I will wait for him." DBY 25 Jehovah is good unto them that wait for him, to the soul [that] seeketh him. NIV 25 The LORD is good to those whose hope is in him, to the one who seeks him; DBY 26 It is good that one should both wait, and that in silence, for the salvation of Jehovah. NIV 26 it is good to wait quietly for the salvation of the LORD. DBY 27 It is good for a man that he bear the yoke in his youth: NIV 27 It is good for a man to bear the yoke while he is young. DBY 28 He sitteth solitary and keepeth silence, because he hath laid it upon him; NIV 28 Let him sit alone in silence, for the LORD has laid it on him. DBY 29 he putteth his mouth in the dust, if so be there may be hope; NIV 29 Let him bury his face in the dust-- there may yet be hope. DBY 30 he giveth his cheek to him that smiteth him; he is filled full with reproach. NIV 30 Let him offer his cheek to one who would strike him, and let him be filled with disgrace. DBY 31 For the Lord will not cast off for ever; NIV 31 For men are not cast off by the Lord forever. DBY 32 but if he have caused grief, he will have compassion according to the multitude of his loving-kindnesses: NIV 32 Though he brings grief, he will show compassion, so great is his unfailing love. DBY 33 for he doth not willingly afflict or grieve the children of men. NIV 33 For he does not willingly bring affliction or grief to the children of men. DBY 34 To crush under foot all the prisoners of the earth, NIV 34 To crush underfoot all prisoners in the land, DBY 35 to turn aside the right of a man before the face of the Most High, NIV 35 to deny a man his rights before the Most High, DBY 36 to wrong a man in his cause, -- will not the Lord see it? NIV 36 to deprive a man of justice-- would not the Lord see such things? DBY 37 Who is he that saith, and there cometh to pass, what the Lord hath not commanded? NIV 37 Who can speak and have it happen if the Lord has not decreed it? DBY 38 Out of the mouth of the Most High doth not there proceed evil and good? NIV 38 Is it not from the mouth of the Most High that both calamities and good things come? DBY 39 Wherefore doth a living man complain, a man for the punishment of his sins? NIV 39 Why should any living man complain when punished for his sins? DBY 40 Let us search and try our ways, and turn again to Jehovah. NIV 40 Let us examine our ways and test them, and let us return to the LORD. DBY 41 Let us lift up our heart with [our] hands unto God in the heavens. NIV 41 Let us lift up our hearts and our hands to God in heaven, and say: DBY 42 We have transgressed and have rebelled: thou hast not pardoned. NIV 42 "We have sinned and rebelled and you have not forgiven. DBY 43 Thou hast covered thyself with anger, and pursued us; thou hast slain, thou hast not spared. NIV 43 "You have covered yourself with anger and pursued us; you have slain without pity. DBY 44 Thou hast covered thyself with a cloud, that prayer should not pass through. NIV 44 You have covered yourself with a cloud so that no prayer can get through. DBY 45 Thou hast made us the offscouring and refuse in the midst of the peoples.

DBY 47 Fear and the pit are come upon us, devastation and ruin. NIV 47 We have suffered terror and pitfalls, ruin and destruction." DBY 48 Mine eye runneth down with streams of water for the ruin of the daughter of my people. NIV 48 Streams of tears flow from my eyes because my people are destroyed. DBY 49 Mine eye poureth down, and ceaseth not, without any intermission, NIV 49 My eyes will flow unceasingly, without relief, DBY 50 till Jehovah look down and behold from the heavens. NIV 50 until the LORD looks down from heaven and sees. DBY 51 Mine eye affecteth my soul, because of all the daughters of my city.

NIV 53 They tried to end my life in a pit and threw stones at me; DBY 54 Waters streamed over my head; I said, I am cut off. NIV 54 the waters closed over my head, and I thought I was about to be cut off. DBY 55 I called upon thy name, Jehovah, out of the lowest pit. NIV 55 I called on your name, O LORD, from the depths of the pit. DBY 56 Thou hast heard my voice: hide not thine ear at my sighing, at my cry. NIV 56 You heard my plea: "Do not close your ears to my cry for relief." DBY 57 Thou drewest near in the day that I called upon thee; thou saidst, Fear not. NIV 57 You came near when I called you, and you said, "Do not fear." DBY 58 Lord, thou hast pleaded the cause of my soul, thou hast redeemed my life. NIV 58 O Lord, you took up my case; you redeemed my life. DBY 59 Jehovah, thou hast seen my wrong: judge thou my cause. NIV 59 You have seen, O LORD, the wrong done to me. Uphold my cause!
