arrow_up_1     Chapter 1

 

How doth the city sit solitary, that was full of people! how is she become as a widow! she that was great among the nations, and princess among the provinces, how is she become tributary!  She weepeth sore in the night, and her tears are on her cheeks: among all her lovers she hath none to comfort her: all her friends have dealt treacherously with her, they are become her enemies.

 

Lamentations 1: 1-2

Lord, see my distress when You chasten me. My heart is broken, and my soul despairs, because I have rebelled against You. The enemy is at the door, and death lies in wait.

 

Behold, O LORD; for I am in distress: my bowels are troubled; mine heart is turned within me; for I have grievously rebelled: abroad the sword bereaveth, at home there is as death.

 

Lamentations 1: 20

Lord, though people heard my distress, no one turned to help. My enemies heard of my troubles, and they were happy to see what You had done. Lord, bring the day You promised, when they will suffer as I have suffered.

 

They have heard that I sigh: there is none to comfort me: all mine enemies have heard of my trouble; they are glad that thou hast done it: thou wilt bring the day that thou hast called, and they shall be like unto me.

 

Lamentations 1: 21

Lord, see my enemies evil deeds, and punish them as You have punished me for my sins, for my groans are many, and I have lost all hope.

 

Let all their wickedness come before thee; and do unto them, as thou hast done unto me for all my transgressions: for my sighs are many, and my heart is faint.

 

Lamentations 1: 22

 

arrow_up_1     Chapter 2

Lord, You have done everything You have promised You would do. You have thrown me down for my iniquity, and You do not pity. You have let my enemies boast of their power.

 

The LORD hath done that which he had devised; he hath fulfilled his word that he had commanded in the days of old: he hath thrown down, and hath not pitied: and he hath caused thine enemy to rejoice over thee, he hath set up the horn of thine adversaries.

 

Lamentations 2: 17

Lord, hear my cry to You. See the tears run down my face day and night. I am worn out with weeping, and the grief does not stop.

 

Their heart cried unto the Lord, O wall of the daughter of Zion, let tears run down like a river day and night: give thyself no rest; let not the apple of thine eye cease.

 

Lamentations 2: 18

Lord, listen to my cry in the night, and hear me pour out my desires to You. I lift my hands up to You, to bring life back to my soul.

 

Arise, cry out in the night: in the beginning of the watches pour out thine heart like water before the face of the Lord: lift up thy hands toward him for the life of thy young children, that faint for hunger in the top of every street.

 

Lamentations 2: 19
