Remember, O LORD, what is come upon us; consider, and behold our reproach.
Our inheritance is turned to strangers, our houses to aliens.
We are orphans and fatherless, our mothers are as widows.
We have paid money for water we drink; our wood is sold unto us.
Our necks are under persecution; we labor and have no rest.
We have given the hand to the Egyptians and to the Assyrians to be provided with bread.
