Lamentations 1:1-6

CEB 1 Oh, no! She sits alone, the city that was once full of people. Once great among nations, she has become like a widow. Once a queen over provinces, she has become a slave. NRS 1 How lonely sits the city that once was full of people! How like a widow she has become, she that was great among the nations! She that was a princess among the provinces has become a vassal. CEB 2 She weeps bitterly in the night, her tears on her cheek. None of her lovers comfort her. All her friends lied to her; they have become her enemies. NRS 2 She weeps bitterly in the night, with tears on her cheeks; among all her lovers she has no one to comfort her; all her friends have dealt treacherously with her, they have become her enemies. CEB 3 Judah was exiled after suffering and hard service. She lives among the nations; she finds no rest. All who were chasing her caught her—right in the middle of her distress. NRS 3 Judah has gone into exile with suffering and hard servitude; she lives now among the nations, and finds no resting place; her pursuers have all overtaken her in the midst of her distress. CEB 4 Zion's roads are in mourning; no one comes to the festivals. All her gates are deserted. Her priests are groaning, her young women grieving. She is bitter. NRS 4 The roads to Zion mourn, for no one comes to the festivals; all her gates are desolate, her priests groan; her young girls grieve, and her lot is bitter. CEB 5 Her adversaries have become rulers; her enemies relax. Certainly the LORD caused her grief because of her many wrong acts. Her children have gone away, captive before the enemy. NRS 5 Her foes have become the masters, her enemies prosper, because the Lord has made her suffer for the multitude of her transgressions; her children have gone away, captives before the foe. CEB 6 Daughter Zion lost all her glory. Her officials are like deer that can't find pasture. They have gone away, frail, before the hunter. NRS 6 From daughter Zion has departed all her majesty. Her princes have become like stags that find no pasture; they fled without strength before the pursuer.

Lamentations 3:19-26

CEB 19 The memory of my suffering and homelessness is bitterness and poison. NRS 19 The thought of my affliction and my homelessness is wormwood and gall! CEB 20 I can't help but remember and am depressed. NRS 20 My soul continually thinks of it and is bowed down within me. CEB 21 I call all this to mind—therefore, I will wait. NRS 21 But this I call to mind, and therefore I have hope: CEB 22 Certainly the faithful love of the LORD hasn't ended; certainly God's compassion isn't through! NRS 22 The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases, his mercies never come to an end; CEB 23 They are renewed every morning. Great is your faithfulness. NRS 23 they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. CEB 24 I think: The LORD is my portion! Therefore, I'll wait for him. NRS 24 "The Lord is my portion," says my soul, "therefore I will hope in him." CEB 25 The LORD is good to those who hope in him, to the person who seeks him. NRS 25 The Lord is good to those who wait for him, to the soul that seeks him. CEB 26 It's good to wait in silence for the LORD's deliverance. NRS 26 It is good that one should wait quietly for the salvation of the Lord.
