Lamentations 3

[1] [2] [3] [4] [5]

3:1 I `am' the man `who' hath seen affliction By the rod of His wrath.

3:2 Me He hath led, and causeth to go `in' darkness, and without light.

3:3 Surely against me He turneth back, He turneth His hand all the day.

3:4 He hath worn out my flesh and my skin. He hath broken my bones.

3:5 He hath built up against me, And setteth round poverty and weariness.

3:6 In dark places He hath caused me to dwell, As the dead of old.

3:7 He hath hedged me about, and I go not out, He hath made heavy my fetter.

3:8 Also when I call and cry out, He hath shut out my prayer.

3:9 He hath hedged my ways with hewn work, My paths He hath made crooked.

3:10 A bear lying in wait He `is' to me, A lion in secret hiding-places.

3:11 My ways He is turning aside, and He pulleth me in pieces, He hath made me a desolation.

3:12 He hath trodden His bow, And setteth me up as a mark for an arrow.

3:13 He hath caused to enter into my reins The sons of His quiver.

3:14 I have been a derision to all my people, Their song all the day.

3:15 He hath filled me with bitter things, He hath filled me `with' wormwood.

3:16 And He breaketh with gravel my teeth, He hath covered me with ashes.

3:17 And Thou castest off from peace my soul, I have forgotten prosperity.

3:18 And I say, Perished hath my strength and my hope from Jehovah.

3:19 Remember my affliction and my mourning, Wormwood and gall!

3:20 Remember well, and bow down doth my soul in me.

3:21 This I turn to my heart -- therefore I hope.

3:22 The kindnesses of Jehovah! For we have not been consumed, For not ended have His mercies.

3:23 New every morning, abundant `is' thy faithfulness.

3:24 My portion `is' Jehovah, hath my soul said, Therefore I hope for Him.

3:25 Good `is' Jehovah to those waiting for Him, To the soul `that' seeketh Him.

3:26 Good! when one doth stay and stand still For the salvation of Jehovah.

3:27 Good for a man that he beareth a yoke in his youth.

3:28 He sitteth alone, and is silent, For He hath laid `it' upon him.

3:29 He putteth in the dust his mouth, if so be there is hope.

3:30 He giveth to his smiter the cheek, He is filled with reproach.

3:31 For the Lord doth not cast off to the age.

3:32 For though He afflicted, yet He hath pitied, According to the abundance of His kindness.

3:33 For He hath not afflicted with His heart, Nor doth He grieve the sons of men.

3:34 To bruise under one's feet any bound ones of earth,

3:35 To turn aside the judgment of a man, Over-against the face of the Most High,

3:36 To subvert a man in his cause, the Lord hath not approved.

3:37 Who `is' this -- he hath said, and it is, `And' the Lord hath not commanded `it'?

3:38 From the mouth of the Most High Go not forth the evils and the good.

3:39 What -- sigh habitually doth a living man, A man for his sin?

3:40 We search our ways, and investigate, And turn back unto Jehovah.

3:41 We lift up our heart on the hands unto God in the heavens.

3:42 We -- we have transgressed and rebelled, Thou -- Thou hast not forgiven.

3:43 Thou hast covered Thyself with anger, And dost pursue us; Thou hast slain -- Thou hast not pitied.

3:44 Thou hast covered Thyself with a cloud, So that prayer doth not pass through.

3:45 Offscouring and refuse Thou dost make us In the midst of the peoples.

3:46 Opened against us their mouth have all our enemies.

3:47 Fear and a snare hath been for us, Desolation and destruction.

3:48 Rivulets of water go down my eye, For the destruction of the daughter of my people.

3:49 Mine eye is poured out, And doth not cease without intermission,

3:50 Till Jehovah looketh and seeth from the heavens,

3:51 My eye affecteth my soul, Because of all the daughters of my city.

3:52 Hunted me sore as a bird have my enemies without cause.

3:53 They have cut off in a pit my life, And they cast a stone against me.

3:54 Flowed have waters over my head, I have said, I have been cut off.

3:55 I called Thy name, O Jehovah, from the lower pit.

3:56 My voice Thou hast heard, Hide not Thine ear at my breathing -- at my cry.

3:57 Thou hast drawn near in the day I call Thee, Thou hast said, Fear not.

3:58 Thou hast pleaded, O Lord, the pleadings of my soul, Thou hast redeemed my life.

3:59 Thou hast seen, O Jehovah, my overthrow, Judge Thou my cause.

3:60 Thou hast seen all their vengeance, All their thoughts of me.

3:61 Thou hast heard their reproach, O Jehovah, All their thoughts against me,

3:62 The lips of my withstanders, Even their meditation against me all the day.

3:63 Their sitting down, and their rising up, Behold attentively, I `am' their song.

3:64 Thou returnest to them the deed, O Jehovah, According to the work of their hands.

3:65 Thou givest to them a covered heart, Thy curse to them.

3:66 Thou pursuest in anger, and destroyest them, From under the heavens of Jehovah!
