2 before Ephraim, Benjamin, and Manasseh! Wake up your power! Come to save us!

4 LORD God of heavenly forces, how long will you fume against your people's prayer?
O Lord God of hosts, how long will you be angry with your people's prayers?
5 You've fed them bread made of tears; you've given them tears to drink three times over!
You have fed them with the bread of tears, and given them tears to drink in full measure.
6 You've put us at odds with our neighbors; our enemies make fun of us.
You make us the scorn of our neighbors; our enemies laugh among themselves.
