Lamentations 5

Studovat vnitřní smysl

           

1 Remember, O Jehovah, what is for us; look, and see our reproach.

2 Our inheritance is turned to strangers, our houses to foreigners.

3 We are orphans and have no father; our mothers are as widows.

4 We have drunk our water for silver; our wood comes with a price.

5 On our necks we are persecuted; we toil, and there is no rest for us.

6 We have given the hand to Egypt, to Assyria, to be·​·satisfied with bread.

7 Our fathers have sinned, and are not; and we have borne·​·the·​·burden of their iniquities.

8 servants have ruled over us; there is none that pulls· us ·out from their hand.

9 We brought our bread with the peril of our souls on·​·account·​·of the sword of the wilderness.

10 Our skin was·​·charred* as an oven from the faces of the gales of the famine.

11 They afflicted the women in Zion, the virgins in the cities of Judah.

12 By their hand princes are hanged; the faces of elders were not honored.

13 They took·​·up the young·​·men to·​·grind, and the lads stumbled over the wood.

14 The elders have ceased from the gate, the young·​·men from their strumming.

15 The joy of our heart has ceased; our dancing has turned to mourning.

16 The crown of our head is fallen; woe unto us now, that we have sinned!

17 Over this our heart is infirm; over these our eyes are·​·darkened.

18 On·​·account·​·of the mountain of Zion, which is desolate, the foxes walk upon it.

19 Thou, O Jehovah, dwellest for eternity; Thy throne from generation to generation.

20 Why dost Thou forget us perpetually, and forsake us for length of days?

21 Return Thou us unto Thee, O Jehovah, and we shall be turned·​·back; renew our ancient days.

22 For rejecting shalt Thou reject us and be· ever very ·enraged against us?
