Or "How the Lord in his anger / has treated Daughter Zion with contempt"
Without pity4 the Lord has swallowed5 up all the dwellings of Jacob; in his wrath he has torn down the strongholds6 of Daughter Judah. He has brought her kingdom and its princes down to the ground7 in dishonor.
He has laid waste his dwelling like a garden; he has destroyed20 his place of meeting.21 The LORD has made Zion forget her appointed festivals and her Sabbaths;22 in his fierce anger he has spurned both king and priest.23
The Lord has rejected his altar and abandoned his sanctuary.24 He has given the walls of her palaces25 into the hands of the enemy; they have raised a shout in the house of the LORD as on the day of an appointed festival.26
