1 א How does the city sit alone, that had many people! How has she become as a widow! She that was great among the nations, and princess among the provinces, how has she become for a tribute!

2 ב Weeping she weeps in the night, and her tears are on her cheeks; there is none to comfort her from all her lovers; all her companions have acted·​·treacherously with her, they have become enemies to her.

3 ג Judah is gone·​·into·​·exile because of affliction, and because of much servitude; she dwells among the nations, she finds no rest; all her persecutors overtook her between the straits.

4 ד The ways of Zion are mourning, because none come to the solemn·​·occasions; all her gates are desolate: her priests sigh, her virgins are made·​·sorrowful, and there is for her bitterness.

5 ה Her adversaries have become the head, her enemies are·​·tranquil; for Jehovah has made· her ·sorrowful for the multitude of her transgressions; her babes have gone into captivity before the adversary.

6 ו And from the daughter of Zion all her honor is gone·​·out; her princes are become as stags that find no pasture, and they are gone without power before the pursuer.

7 ז Jerusalem remembered, in the days of her affliction and of her being·​·dominated, all her desired things that were from the ancient days; when her people fell into the hand of the adversary, and none did help her, the adversaries saw her, and did mock at her Sabbath.

8 ח Jerusalem has sinned a sin; therefore she is isolated*; all who honored her consider her worthless, for they have seen her nakedness: she even sighs, and turns·​·back backward.

9 ט Her uncleanness is in her skirts; she remembers not her last times; therefore she came·​·down in wonders; she had no comfort. O Jehovah, see my affliction; for the enemy has magnified himself.

10 י The adversary has spread his hand on all her desired things; for she has seen the nations coming·​·into her sanctuary, whom Thou didst command that they should not come into the assembly to Thee.

11 כ All her people sigh, they seek bread; they have given their desired things for food to return the soul; see, O Jehovah, and look; for I have become worthless.

12 ל Is it nothing to you, all who pass·​·by the way? Look, and see if there·​·be any pain as my pain, which is enacted on me, with which Jehovah has made· me ·sorrowful in the day of His fierce anger.

13 מ From on·​·high has He sent fire into my bones, and it has had·​·dominion over them; He has spread a net for my feet, He has returned me backward: He has given me desolation and infirmity all the day.

14 נ The yoke of my transgressions is bound by His hand; they are wreathed, and come·​·up upon my neck: He has made my power to stumble, the Lord has given me into their hands, from whom I am· not ·able to rise·​·up.

15 ס The Lord has trampled·​·down all my powerful·​·ones in my midst; He has called the congregation against me to break my young·​·men: the Lord has trodden the wine·​·press for the virgin daughter of Judah.

16 ע For these things I weep; my eye, my eye runs down with water, because the comforter that should turn·​·back my soul is far from me; my sons are desolate, because the enemy prevailed.

17 פ Zion spreads her hands, and there is none to comfort her; Jehovah has commanded concerning Jacob, that his adversaries should be all around him: Jerusalem is isolated among them.

18 צ Jehovah, He is just; for I have rebelled against His mouth; hear, I pray you, all peoples, and see my pain; my virgins and my young·​·men have gone into captivity.

19 ק I called for my lovers, but they deceived me; my priests and my elders gave up the expired in the city, when they sought their food to turn·​·back their souls.

20 ר See, O Jehovah, for I am·​·in·​·adversity; my bowels churn, my heart is turned within me, for rebelling I have rebelled; on the street the sword bereaves, in the houses it is as death.

21 ש They have heard that I sigh; there is none to comfort me: all my enemies have heard of my evil state; they have·​·joy that Thou hast done it: Thou wilt bring the day that Thou hast called, and they shall be like me.

22 ת Let all their evil come before Thee; and act unto them, as Thou hast acted unto me for all my transgressions; for my sighings are many, and my heart is infirm.
