Lamentations 5

5:1 Remember, O Lord, what is come vpon vs: consider and beholde our reproch. 5:2 Our inheritance is turned to strangers, our houses to aliants. 5:3 We are orphanes and fatherlesse, our mothers are as widowes. 5:4 We haue drunken our water for money, our wood is sold vnto vs. 5:5 Our neckes are vnder persecution: we labour and haue no rest. 5:6 We haue giuen the hand to the Egyptians, and to the Assyrians, to be satisfied with bread. 5:7 Our fathers haue sinned and are not, and wee haue borne their iniquities. 5:8 Seruants haue ruled ouer vs: there is none that doeth deliuer vs out of their hand. 5:9 We gate our bread with the perill of our liues, because of the sword of the wildernesse. 5:10 Our skinne was blacke like an ouen, because of the terrible famine. 5:11 They rauished the women in Zion, and the maides in the cities of Iudah. 5:12 Princes are hanged vp by their hand: the faces of Elders were not honoured. 5:13 They tooke the young men to grinde, and the children fell vnder the wood. 5:14 The Elders haue ceased from the gate, the young men from their musicke. 5:15 The ioy of our heart is ceased, our daunce is turned into mourning. 5:16 The crowne is fallen from our head: Woe vnto vs, that wee haue sinned. 5:17 For this our heart is faint, for these things our eyes are dimme. 5:18 Because of the mountaine of Zion, which is desolate, the foxes walke vpon it. 5:19 Thou, O Lord, remainest for euer: thy throne from generation to generation. 5:20 Wherefore doest thou forget vs for euer, and forsake vs so long time 5:21 Turne thou vs vnto thee, O Lord, and we shall be turned: renew our dayes as of old. 5:22 But thou hast vtterly reiected vs: thou art very wroth against vs.
