Lamentations 5:8

8 Slaves have now become our masters; there is no one left to rescue us.

Lamentations 5:8 In-Context

6 We submitted to Egypt and Assyria to get enough food to survive.
7 Our ancestors sinned, but they have died— and we are suffering the punishment they deserved!
8 Slaves have now become our masters; there is no one left to rescue us.
9 We hunt for food at the risk of our lives, for violence rules the countryside.
10 The famine has blackened our skin as though baked in an oven.
