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 drank our water for money; our wood is sold to 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 satisfied with bread.
