1: Remember, O Jehovah, what hath befallen us, Look attentively, and see our reproach. 2: Our inheritance hath been turned to strangers, Our houses to foreigners. 3: Orphans we have been -- without a father, our mothers [are] as widows. 4: Our water for money we have drunk, Our wood for a price doth come. 5: For our neck we have been pursued, We have laboured -- there hath been no rest for us. 6: [To] Egypt we have given a hand, [To] Asshur, to be satisfied with bread. 7: Our fathers have sinned -- they are not, We their iniquities have borne. 8: Servants have ruled over us, A deliverer there is none from their hand. 9: With our lives we bring in our bread, Because of the sword of the wilderness. 10: Our skin as an oven hath been burning, Because of the raging of the famine. 11: Wives in Zion they have humbled, Virgins -- in cities of Judah. 12: Princes by their hand have been hanged, The faces of elders have not been honoured. 13: Young men to grind they have taken, And youths with wood have stumbled. 14: The aged from the gate have ceased, Young men from their song. 15: Ceased hath the joy of our heart, Turned to mourning hath been our dancing. 16: Fallen hath the crown [from] our head, Wo [is] now to us, for we have sinned. 17: For this hath our heart been sick, For these have our eyes been dim. 18: For the mount of Zion -- that is desolate, Foxes have gone up on it. 19: Thou, O Jehovah, to the age remainest, Thy throne to generation and generation. 20: Why for ever dost Thou forget us? Thou forsakest us for length of days! 21: Turn us back, O Jehovah, unto Thee, And we turn back, renew our days as of old. 22: For hast Thou utterly rejected us? Thou hast been wroth against us -- exceedingly?
