How Lonely Sits the City

1 1How lonely sits the city that was full of people! How like 2a widow has she become, she who was great among the nations! She who was 3a princess among the provinces has become 4a slave.
2 5She weeps bitterly in the night, with tears on her cheeks; 6among all her lovers she has 7none to comfort her; 8all her friends have dealt treacherously with her; they have become her enemies.
