Wesley's Notes
Geneva Study Bible
   1: Keep in mind, O Lord, what has come to us: take note and see our shame.
   2: Our heritage is given up to men of strange lands, our houses to those who are not our countrymen.
   3: We are children without fathers, our mothers are like widows.
   4: We give money for a drink of water, we get our wood for a price.
   5: Our attackers are on our necks: overcome with weariness, we have no rest.
   6: We have given our hands to the Egyptians and to the Assyrians so that we might have enough bread.
   7: Our fathers were sinners and are dead; and the weight of their evil-doing is on us.
   8: Servants are ruling over us, and there is no one to make us free from their hands.
   9: We put our lives in danger to get our bread, because of the sword of the waste land.
   10: Our skin is heated like an oven because of our burning heat from need of food.
   11: They took by force the women in Zion, the virgins in the towns of Judah.
   12: Their hands put princes to death by hanging: the faces of old men were not honoured.
   13: The young men were crushing the grain, and the boys were falling under the wood.
   14: The old men are no longer seated in the doorway, and the music of the young men has come to an end.
   15: The joy of our hearts is ended; our dancing is changed into sorrow.
   16: The crown has been taken from our head: sorrow is ours, for we are sinners.
   17: Because of this our hearts are feeble; for these things our eyes are dark;
   18: Because of the mountain of Zion which is a waste; jackals go over it.
   19: You, O Lord, are seated as King for ever; the seat of your power is eternal.
   20: Why have we gone from your memory for ever? why have you been turned away from us for so long?
   21: Make us come back to you, O Lord, and let us be turned; make our days new again as in the past.
   22: But you have quite given us up; you are full of wrath against us.
