Listen to the Bible

Unchecked Copy BoxLam 1:1 - How does the city sit solitary, that was full of people! She has become as a widow, who was great among the nations! She who was a princess among the provinces is become tributary!

Unchecked Copy BoxLam 1:2 - She weeps sore in the night, and her tears are on her cheeks; Among all her lovers she has none to comfort her: All her friends have dealt treacherously with her; they are become her enemies.

Unchecked Copy BoxLam 1:3 - Yehudah is gone into captivity because of affliction, and because of great servitude; She dwells among the nations, she finds no rest: All her persecutors overtook her within the straits.

Unchecked Copy BoxLam 1:4 - The ways of Tziyon do mourn, because none come to the solemn assembly; All her gates are desolate, her Kohanim do sigh: Her virgins are afflicted, and she herself is in bitterness.

Unchecked Copy BoxLam 1:5 - Her adversaries are become the head, her enemies prosper; For the LORD has afflicted her for the multitude of her transgressions: Her young children are gone into captivity before the adversary.

Unchecked Copy BoxLam 1:6 - From the daughter of Tziyon all her majesty is departed: Her princes are become like harts that find no pasture, They are gone without strength before the pursuer.

Unchecked Copy BoxLam 1:7 - Yerushalayim remembers in the days of her affliction and of her miseries all her pleasant things that were from the days of old: When her people fell into the hand of the adversary, and none did help her, The adversaries saw her, they did mock at her desolations.

Unchecked Copy BoxLam 1:8 - Yerushalayim has grievously sinned; therefore she is become as an unclean thing; All who honored her despise her, because they have seen her nakedness: Yes, she sighs, and turns backward.

Unchecked Copy BoxLam 1:9 - Her filthiness was in her skirts; she didn't remember her latter end; Therefore is she come down wonderfully; she has no comforter: See, LORD, my affliction; for the enemy has magnified himself.

Unchecked Copy BoxLam 1:10 - The adversary has spread out his hand on all her pleasant things: For she has seen that the nations are entered into her sanctuary, Concerning whom you did command that they should not enter into your assembly.

Unchecked Copy BoxLam 1:11 - All her people sigh, they seek bread; They have given their pleasant things for food to refresh the soul: Look, LORD, and see; for I am become abject.

Unchecked Copy BoxLam 1:12 - Is it nothing to you, all you who pass by? Look, and see if there be any sorrow like my sorrow, which is brought on me, With which the LORD has afflicted me in the day of his fierce anger.

Unchecked Copy BoxLam 1:13 - From on high has he sent fire into my bones, and it prevails against them; He has spread a net for my feet, he has turned me back: He has made me desolate and faint all the day.

Unchecked Copy BoxLam 1:14 - The yoke of my transgressions is bound by his hand; They are knit together, they are come up on my neck; he has made my strength to fail: The Lord has delivered me into their hands, against whom I am not able to stand.

Unchecked Copy BoxLam 1:15 - The Lord has set at nothing all my mighty men in the midst of me; He has called a solemn assembly against me to crush my young men: The Lord has trodden as in a winepress the virgin daughter of Yehudah.

Unchecked Copy BoxLam 1:16 - For these things I weep; my eye, my eye runs down with water; Because the comforter who should refresh my soul is far from me: My children are desolate, because the enemy has prevailed.

Unchecked Copy BoxLam 1:17 - Tziyon spreads forth her hands; there is none to comfort her; The LORD has commanded concerning Ya`akov, that those who are round about him should be his adversaries: Yerushalayim is among them as an unclean thing.

Unchecked Copy BoxLam 1:18 - The LORD is righteous; for I have rebelled against his mitzvah: Please hear all you peoples, and see my sorrow: My virgins and my young men are gone into captivity.

Unchecked Copy BoxLam 1:19 - I called for my lovers, but they deceived me: My Kohanim and my Zakenim gave up the spirit in the city, While they sought them food to refresh their souls.

Unchecked Copy BoxLam 1:20 - See, LORD; for I am in distress; my heart is troubled; My heart is turned within me; for I have grievously rebelled: Abroad the sword bereaves, at home there is as death.

Unchecked Copy BoxLam 1:21 - They have heard that I sigh; there is none to comfort me; All my enemies have heard of my trouble; they are glad that you have done it: You will bring the day that you have proclaimed, and they shall be like me.

Unchecked Copy BoxLam 1:22 - Let all their wickedness come before you; Do to them, as you have done to me for all my transgressions: For my sighs are many, and my heart is faint.
