Geneva Study Bible
   1: Remember, O Jehovah, what is come upon us: Behold, and see our reproach.
   2: Our inheritance is turned unto strangers, Our houses unto 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 pursuers are upon our necks: We are weary, 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 sinned, and are not; And we have borne their iniquities.
   8: Servants rule over us: There is none to deliver us out of their hand.
   9: We get our bread at the peril of our lives, Because of the sword of the wilderness.
   10: Our skin is black like an oven, Because of the burning heat of famine.
   11: They ravished the women in Zion, The virgins in the cities of Judah.
   12: Princes were hanged up by their hand: The faces of elders were not honored.
   13: The young men bare the mill; And the children stumbled under the wood.
   14: The elders have ceased from the gate, The young men from their music.
   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! for we have sinned.
   17: For this our heart is faint; For these things our eyes are dim;
   18: For the mountain of Zion, which is desolate: The foxes walk upon it.
   19: Thou, O Jehovah, abidest for ever; Thy throne is 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 Jehovah, and we shall be turned; Renew our days as of old.
   22: But thou hast utterly rejected us; Thou art very wroth against us.
