Lamentations 5
Peshitta Holy Bible Translated Par ▾ 
1Remember, LORD JEHOVAH, what happened to us! Look, and see our reproach!

2Our inheritance has been turned over to strangers and our houses to foreigners

3We were orphans without a father, and our mothers were as widows

4We are made to drink our water for money, and our wood is for a price

5They came for our necks; we were persecuted and we labor and we have no rest

6The Egyptians gave a hand, and the Assyrians, to supply bread

7Our fathers sinned and they are not, and we carry their sins

8Servants are authorized over us and there is none who saves us from their hands

9Into our soul we will put bread in the presence of the sword in the wilderness

10Our skins were burned as by a furnace and they became pale in the wretchedness of famine

11Women in Zion were violated and virgins in the villages of Judea

12Princes were hanged by their hands and they dishonored the persons of the Elders

13The young men ground meal with the millstone and boys stumbled with wood

14They removed Elders from the gate and young men from their joy

15The joy of our hearts has ceased. Our joy has turned into grieving

16The crown of our head has fallen! Woe to us, because we have sinned!

17Because of this, behold, our heart grieves, and because of this, behold, our eyes are darkened!

18Because of the Mountain of Zion that is desolate, and foxes walk in it

19And you, LORD JEHOVAH, you are to eternity, and your throne, forever and ever!

20You shall not leave us for eternity, nor forget us for the length of days!

21Convert us, LORD JEHOVAH, to you, and we shall be converted. Make our days new as those from before!

22Because you have rejected us, and you have been very angry against us.
