Remember, O Lord, what is come upon us: consider and behold our reproach.
Our inheritance is turned to aliens: our houses to strangers.
We are become orphans without a father: our mothers are as widows.
We have drunk our water for money: we have bought our wood.
We were dragged by the necks, we were weary and no rest was given us.
We have given our hand to Egypt, and to the Assyrians, that we might be satisfied with bread.
