1: Remember, Yahweh, what has come on us: Look, and see our reproach. 2: Our inheritance is turned to strangers, Our houses to aliens. 3: We are orphans and fatherless; Our mothers are as widows. 4: We have drunken our water for money; Our wood is sold to us. 5: Our pursuers are on our necks: We are weary, and have no rest. 6: We have given the hand to the Egyptians, To the Assyrians, to be satisfied with bread. 7: Our fathers sinned, and are no more; We have borne their iniquities. 8: Servants rule over us: There is none to deliver us out of their hand. 9: We get our bread at the peril of our lives, Because of the sword of the wilderness. 10: Our skin is black like an oven, Because of the burning heat of famine. 11: They ravished the women in Zion, The virgins in the cities of Judah. 12: Princes were hanged up by their hand: The faces of elders were not honored. 13: The young men bare the mill; The children stumbled under the wood. 14: The elders have ceased from the gate, The young men from their music. 15: The joy of our heart is ceased; Our dance is turned into mourning. 16: The crown is fallen from our head: Woe to us! for we have sinned. 17: For this our heart is faint; For these things our eyes are dim; 18: For the mountain of Zion, which is desolate: The foxes walk on it. 19: You, Yahweh, remain forever; Your throne is from generation to generation. 20: Why do you forget us forever, And forsake us so long time? 21: Turn us to yourself, Yahweh, and we shall be turned. Renew our days as of old. 22: But you have utterly rejected us; You are very angry against us.
