Lamentations 4

  <  BACK



4:1 How is the gold become dim! how is the most fine gold changed! 
the stones of the sanctuary are poured out in the top of every street.

4:2 The precious sons of Zion, comparable to fine gold, 
how are they esteemed as earthen pitchers, the work of the hands of the potter! 

4:3 Even the sea monsters draw out the breast, they give suck to their young ones: 
the daughter of my people is become cruel, like the ostriches in the wilderness.

4:4 The tongue of the sucking child cleaveth to the roof of his mouth for thirst: 
the young children ask bread, and no man breaketh it unto them.

4:5 They that did feed delicately are desolate in the streets: 
they that were brought up in scarlet embrace dunghills.

4:6 For the punishment of the iniquity of the daughter of my people is greater than the punishment 
of the sin of Sodom, that was overthrown as in a moment, and no hands stayed on her.

4:7 Her Nazarites were purer than snow, they were whiter than milk, 
they were more ruddy in body than rubies, their polishing was of sapphire: 

4:8 Their visage is blacker than a coal; they are not known in the streets: 
their skin cleaveth to their bones; it is withered, it is become like a stick.

4:9 They that be slain with the sword are better than they that be slain with hunger: 
for these pine away, stricken through for want of the fruits of the field.

4:10 The hands of the pitiful women have sodden their own children: 
they were their meat in the destruction of the daughter of my people.

4:11 The LORD hath accomplished his fury; he hath poured out his fierce anger, 
and hath kindled a fire in Zion, and it hath devoured the foundations thereof.

4:12 The kings of the earth, and all the inhabitants of the world, would not have believed 
that the adversary and the enemy should have entered into the gates of Jerusalem.

4:13 For the sins of her prophets, and the iniquities of her priests,
that have shed the blood of the just in the midst of her, 

4:14 They have wandered as blind men in the streets, 
they have polluted themselves with blood, so that men could not touch their garments.

4:15 They cried unto them, Depart ye; it is unclean; depart, depart, touch not: 
when they fled away and wandered, they said among the heathen, They shall no more sojourn there.

4:16 The anger of the LORD hath divided them; he will no more regard them: 
they respected not the persons of the priests, they favoured not the elders.

4:17 As for us, our eyes as yet failed for our vain help: 
in our watching we have watched for a nation that could not save us.

4:18 They hunt our steps, that we cannot go in our streets: 
our end is near, our days are fulfilled; for our end is come.

4:19 Our persecutors are swifter than the eagles of the heaven: 
they pursued us upon the mountains, they laid wait for us in the wilderness.

4:20 The breath of our nostrils, the anointed of the LORD, was taken in their pits, 
of whom we said, Under his shadow we shall live among the heathen.

4:21 Rejoice and be glad, O daughter of Edom, that dwellest in the land of Uz; 
the cup also shall pass through unto thee: thou shalt be drunken, and shalt make thyself naked.

4:22 The punishment of thine iniquity is accomplished, O of Zion; 
he will no more carry thee away into captivity: 
he will visit thine iniquity, O daughter of Edom; he will discover thy sins.
