Lamentations Chapter 5

King James Version

   1: Remember, O LORD, what is come upon us: consider, and behold 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 unto us.
   5: Our necks are under persecution: we labour, and have no rest.
   6: We have given the hand to the Egyptians, and to the Assyrians, to be satisfied with bread.
   7: Our fathers have sinned, and are not; and we have borne their iniquities.
   8: Servants have ruled over us: there is none that doth deliver us out of their hand.
   9: We gat our bread with the peril of our lives because of the sword of the wilderness.
   10: Our skin was black like an oven because of the terrible famine.
   11: They ravished the women in Zion, and the maids in the cities of Judah.
   12: Princes are hanged up by their hand: the faces of elders were not honoured.
   13: They took the young men to grind, and the children fell under the wood.
   14: The elders have ceased from the gate, the young men from their musick.
   15: The joy of our heart is ceased; our dance is turned into mourning.
   16: The crown is fallen from our head: woe unto us, that we have sinned!
   17: For this our heart is faint; for these things our eyes are dim.
   18: Because of the mountain of Zion, which is desolate, the foxes walk upon it.
   19: Thou, O LORD, remainest for ever; thy throne from generation to generation.
   20: Wherefore dost thou forget us for ever, and forsake us so long time?
   21: Turn thou us unto thee, O LORD, and we shall be turned; renew our days as of old.
   22: But thou hast utterly rejected us; thou art very wroth against us.
