Chapter 2

  1. 1. How hath the Lord
    H136
    covered
    H5743
    the daughter
    H1323
    of Zion
    H6726
    with a cloud
    H5743
    in his anger,
    H639
    and cast down
    H7993
    from heaven
    H8064
    unto the earth
    H776
    the beauty
    H8597
    of Israel,
    H3478
    and remembered
    H2142
    not his footstool
    H7272
    in
    H1916
    the day
    H3117
    of his anger!
    H639
  2. 2. The Lord
    H136
    hath swallowed up
    H1104
    all the habitations
    H4999
    of Jacob,
    H3290
    and hath not pitied:
    H2550
    he hath thrown down
    H2040
    in his wrath
    H5678
    the strong holds
    H4013
    of the daughter
    H1323
    of Judah;
    H3063
    he hath brought them down
    H5060
    to the ground:
    H776
    he hath polluted
    H2490
    the kingdom
    H4467
    and the princes
    H8269
    thereof.
  3. 3. He hath cut off
    H1438
    in his fierce
    H2750
    anger
    H639
    all the horn
    H7161
    of Israel:
    H3478
    he hath drawn
    H7725
    back
    H268
    his right hand
    H3225
    from before
    H6440
    the enemy,
    H341
    and he burned
    H1197
    against Jacob
    H3290
    like a flaming
    H3852
    fire,
    H784
    which devoureth
    H398
    round about.
    H5439
  4. 4. He hath bent
    H1869
    his bow
    H7198
    like an enemy:
    H341
    he stood
    H5324
    with his right hand
    H3225
    as an adversary,
    H6862
    and slew
    H2026
    all that were pleasant
    H4261
    to the eye
    H5869
    in the tabernacle
    H168
    of the daughter
    H1323
    of Zion:
    H6726
    he poured out
    H8210
    his fury
    H2534
    like fire.
    H784
  5. 5. The Lord
    H136
    was as an enemy:
    H341
    he hath swallowed up
    H1104
    Israel,
    H3478
    he hath swallowed up
    H1104
    all her palaces:
    H759
    he hath destroyed
    H7843
    his strong holds,
    H4013
    and hath increased
    H7235
    in the daughter
    H1323
    of Judah
    H3063
    mourning
    H8386
    and lamentation.
    H592
  6. 6. And he hath violently taken away
    H2554
    his tabernacle,
    H7900
    as if it were of a garden:
    H1588
    he hath destroyed
    H7843
    his places of the assembly:
    H4150
    the LORD
    H3068
    hath caused the solemn feasts
    H4150
    and sabbaths
    H7676
    to be forgotten
    H7911
    in Zion,
    H6726
    and hath despised
    H5006
    in the indignation
    H2195
    of his anger
    H639
    the king
    H4428
    and the priest.
    H3548
  7. 7. The Lord
    H136
    hath cast off
    H2186
    his altar,
    H4196
    he hath abhorred
    H5010
    his sanctuary,
    H4720
    he hath given up
    H5462
    into the hand
    H3027
    of the enemy
    H341
    the walls
    H2346
    of her palaces;
    H759
    they have made
    H5414
    a noise
    H6963
    in the house
    H1004
    of the LORD,
    H3068
    as in the day
    H3117
    of a solemn feast.
    H4150
  8. 8. The LORD
    H3068
    hath purposed
    H2803
    to destroy
    H7843
    the wall
    H2346
    of the daughter
    H1323
    of Zion:
    H6726
    he hath stretched out
    H5186
    a line,
    H6957
    he hath not withdrawn
    H7725
    his hand
    H3027
    from destroying:
    H1104
    therefore he made the rampart
    H2426
    and the wall
    H2346
    to lament;
    H56
    they languished
    H535
    together.
    H3162
  9. 9. Her gates
    H8179
    are sunk
    H2883
    into the ground;
    H776
    he hath destroyed
    H6
    and broken
    H7665
    her bars:
    H1280
    her king
    H4428
    and her princes
    H8269
    are among the Gentiles:
    H1471
    the law
    H8451
    is no more; her prophets
    H5030
    also find
    H4672
    no vision
    H2377
    from the LORD.
    H3068
  10. 10. The elders
    H2205
    of the daughter
    H1323
    of Zion
    H6726
    sit
    H3427
    upon the ground,
    H776
    and keep silence:
    H1826
    they have cast up
    H5927
    dust
    H6083
    upon their heads;
    H7218
    they have girded
    H2296
    themselves with sackcloth:
    H8242
    the virgins
    H1330
    of Jerusalem
    H3389
    hang down
    H3381
    their heads
    H7218
    to the ground.
    H776
  11. 11. Mine eyes
    H5869
    do fail
    H3615
    with tears,
    H1832
    my bowels
    H4578
    are troubled,
    H2560
    my liver
    H3516
    is poured
    H8210
    upon the earth,
    H776
    for the destruction
    H7667
    of the daughter
    H1323
    of my people;
    H5971
    because the children
    H5768
    and the sucklings
    H3243
    swoon
    H5848
    in the streets
    H7339
    of the city.
    H7151
  12. 12. They say
    H559
    to their mothers,
    H517
    Where is corn
    H1715
    and wine?
    H3196
    when they swooned
    H5848
    as the wounded
    H2491
    in the streets
    H7339
    of the city,
    H5892
    when their soul
    H5315
    was poured out
    H8210
    into their mothers'
    H517
    bosom.
    H2436
  13. 13. What thing shall I take to witness
    H5749
    H5749
    for thee? what thing
    H4100
    shall I liken
    H1819
    to thee, O daughter
    H1323
    of Jerusalem?
    H3389
    what shall I equal
    H7737
    to thee, that I may comfort
    H5162
    thee, O virgin
    H1330
    daughter
    H1323
    of Zion?
    H6726
    for thy breach
    H7667
    is great
    H1419
    like the sea:
    H3220
    who can heal
    H7495
    thee?
  14. 14. Thy prophets
    H5030
    have seen
    H2372
    vain
    H7723
    and foolish things
    H8602
    for thee: and they have not discovered
    H1540
    thine iniquity,
    H5771
    to turn away
    H7725
    thy captivity;
    H7622
    H7622
    but have seen
    H2372
    for thee false
    H7723
    burdens
    H4864
    and causes of banishment.
    H4065
  15. 15. All that pass
    H5674
    by clap
    H5606
    their hands
    H3709
    at thee;
    H1870
    they hiss
    H8319
    and wag
    H5128
    their head
    H7218
    at the daughter
    H1323
    of Jerusalem,
    H3389
    saying, Is this the city
    H5892
    that men call
    H559
    The perfection
    H3632
    of beauty,
    H3308
    The joy
    H4885
    of the whole earth?
    H776
  16. 16. All thine enemies
    H341
    have opened
    H6475
    their mouth
    H6310
    against thee: they hiss
    H8319
    and gnash
    H2786
    the teeth:
    H8127
    they say,
    H559
    We have swallowed her up:
    H1104
    certainly
    H389
    this is the day
    H3117
    that we looked for;
    H6960
    we have found,
    H4672
    we have seen
    H7200
    it.
  17. 17. The LORD
    H3068
    hath done
    H6213
    that which he had devised;
    H2161
    he hath fulfilled
    H1214
    his word
    H565
    that he had commanded
    H6680
    in the days
    H3117
    of old:
    H6924
    he hath thrown down,
    H2040
    and hath not pitied:
    H2550
    and he hath caused thine enemy
    H341
    to rejoice
    H8055
    over thee, he hath set up
    H7311
    the horn
    H7161
    of thine adversaries.
    H6862
  18. 18. Their heart
    H3820
    cried
    H6817
    unto the Lord,
    H136
    O wall
    H2346
    of the daughter
    H1323
    of Zion,
    H6726
    let tears
    H1832
    run down
    H3381
    like a river
    H5158
    day
    H3119
    and night:
    H3915
    give
    H5414
    thyself no rest;
    H6314
    let not the apple
    H1323
    of thine eye
    H5869
    cease.
    H1826
  19. 19. Arise,
    H6965
    cry out
    H7442
    in the night:
    H3915
    in the beginning
    H7218
    of the watches
    H821
    pour out
    H8210
    thine heart
    H3820
    like water
    H4325
    before
    H5227
    the face
    H6440
    of the Lord:
    H136
    lift up
    H5375
    thy hands
    H3709
    toward him for the life
    H5315
    of thy young children,
    H5768
    that faint
    H5848
    for hunger
    H7458
    in the top
    H7218
    of every street.
    H2351
  20. 20. Behold,
    H7200
    O LORD,
    H3068
    and consider
    H5027
    to whom thou hast done
    H5953
    this.
    H3541
    Shall the women
    H802
    eat
    H398
    their fruit,
    H6529
    and children
    H5768
    of a span long?
    H2949
    shall the priest
    H3548
    and the prophet
    H5030
    be slain
    H2026
    in the sanctuary
    H4720
    of the Lord?
    H136
  21. 21. The young
    H5288
    and the old
    H2205
    lie
    H7901
    on the ground
    H776
    in the streets:
    H2351
    my virgins
    H1330
    and my young men
    H970
    are fallen
    H5307
    by the sword;
    H2719
    thou hast slain
    H2026
    them in the day
    H3117
    of thine anger;
    H639
    thou hast killed,
    H2873
    and not pitied.
    H2550
  22. 22. Thou hast called
    H7121
    as in a solemn
    H4150
    day
    H3117
    my terrors
    H4032
    round about,
    H5439
    so that in the day
    H3117
    of the LORD'S
    H3068
    anger
    H639
    none escaped
    H6412
    nor remained:
    H8300
    those that I have swaddled
    H2946
    and brought up
    H7235
    hath mine enemy
    H341
    consumed.
