1 Hear ye this word which I take up against you, even a lamentation, O house of Israel:
2 The virgin of Israel is fallen; she shall no more rise. She is forsaken upon her land; there is none to raise her up.
3 For thus saith the Lord GOD: "The city that went out by a thousand shall be left a hundred, and that which went forth by a hundred shall be left ten to the house of Israel."
