Remember, O Jehovah, what hath befallen us, Look attentively, and see our reproach.
Our inheritance hath been turned to strangers, Our houses to foreigners.
Orphans we have been -- without a father, our mothers [are] as widows.
Our water for money we have drunk, Our wood for a price doth come.
For our neck we have been pursued, We have laboured -- there hath been no rest for us.
[To] Egypt we have given a hand, [To] Asshur, to be satisfied with bread.
