In dark places He has made me dwell,
Like those who have long been dead.

Unchecked Copy Box Lam 3:8

Even when I cry out and call for help,
He shuts out my prayer.

He is to me like a bear lying in wait,
Like a lion in secret places.

He bent His bow
And set me as a target for the arrow.

He made the [fn]arrows of His quiver
To enter into my [fn]inward parts.

Tools specific to Lam 3:14

Unchecked Copy Box Lam 3:14

I have become a laughingstock to all my people,
Their mocking song all the day.

Tools specific to Lam 3:15

Unchecked Copy Box Lam 3:15

He has filled me with bitterness,
He has made me drunk with wormwood.

Tools specific to Lam 3:16

Unchecked Copy Box Lam 3:16

He has broken my teeth with gravel;
He has made me cower in the dust.

Tools specific to Lam 3:17

Unchecked Copy Box Lam 3:17

My soul has been rejected from peace;
I have forgotten [fn]happiness.

Tools specific to Lam 3:18

Unchecked Copy Box Lam 3:18

So I say, “My strength has perished,
And so has my hope from the LORD.”

Tools specific to Lam 3:19

Unchecked Copy Box Lam 3:19

Remember my affliction and my [fn]wandering, the wormwood and bitterness.

Tools specific to Lam 3:20

Unchecked Copy Box Lam 3:20

Surely my soul remembers
And is bowed down within me.

Tools specific to Lam 3:21

This I recall to my mind,
Therefore I have hope.

Tools specific to Lam 3:22

For His compassions never fail.

They are new every morning;
Great is Your faithfulness.

Tools specific to Lam 3:24

Unchecked Copy Box Lam 3:24

“The LORD is my portion,” says my soul,

For the salvation of the LORD.

It is good for a man that he should bear
The yoke in his youth.

Tools specific to Lam 3:28

Unchecked Copy Box Lam 3:28

Let him sit alone and be silent
Since He has laid it on him.

Tools specific to Lam 3:29

Unchecked Copy Box Lam 3:29

Let him [fn]put his mouth in the dust,
Perhaps there is hope.

Tools specific to Lam 3:30

Unchecked Copy Box Lam 3:30

Let him give his cheek to [fn]the smiter,
Let him be filled with reproach.

Tools specific to Lam 3:31

Unchecked Copy Box Lam 3:31

For the Lord will not reject forever,

Tools specific to Lam 3:32

Unchecked Copy Box Lam 3:32

For if He causes grief,
Then He will have compassion
According to His abundant lovingkindness.

Tools specific to Lam 3:33

Unchecked Copy Box Lam 3:33

For He does not afflict [fn]willingly
Or grieve the sons of men.

Tools specific to Lam 3:34

Unchecked Copy Box Lam 3:34

To crush under His feet
All the prisoners of the [fn]land,

Tools specific to Lam 3:35

Unchecked Copy Box Lam 3:35

To [fn]deprive a man of justice
In the presence of the Most High,

Tools specific to Lam 3:36

Unchecked Copy Box Lam 3:36

To [fn]defraud a man in his lawsuit—
Of these things the Lord does not [fn]approve.

Tools specific to Lam 3:37

Unchecked Copy Box Lam 3:37

Who is [fn]there who speaks and it comes to pass,
Unless the Lord has commanded it?

Tools specific to Lam 3:38

Unchecked Copy Box Lam 3:38

Is it not from the mouth of the Most High
That [fn]both good and ill go forth?

Tools specific to Lam 3:39

Unchecked Copy Box Lam 3:39

Why should any living [fn]mortal, or any man,
Offer complaint [fn]in view of his sins?

Let us examine and probe our ways,
And let us return to the LORD.

Tools specific to Lam 3:41

Unchecked Copy Box Lam 3:41

We lift up our heart [fn]and hands
Toward God in heaven;

Unchecked Copy Box Lam 3:42

We have transgressed and rebelled,
You have not pardoned.

You have covered Yourself with anger
And pursued us;
You have slain and have not spared.

Unchecked Copy Box Lam 3:44

You have covered Yourself with a cloud
So that no prayer can pass through.

In the midst of the peoples.

Tools specific to Lam 3:46

Unchecked Copy Box Lam 3:46

All our enemies have opened their mouths against us.

Tools specific to Lam 3:47

Unchecked Copy Box Lam 3:47

Panic and pitfall have befallen us,
Devastation and destruction;

Unchecked Copy Box Lam 3:48

My [fn]eyes run down with streams of water
Because of the destruction of the daughter of my people.

Tools specific to Lam 3:49

Unchecked Copy Box Lam 3:49

My eyes pour down unceasingly,
Without stopping,

Tools specific to Lam 3:50

Unchecked Copy Box Lam 3:50

Until the LORD looks down
And sees from heaven.

Tools specific to Lam 3:51

Unchecked Copy Box Lam 3:51

My eyes bring pain to my soul
Because of all the daughters of my city.

Tools specific to Lam 3:52

Unchecked Copy Box Lam 3:52

My enemies without cause
Hunted me down like a bird;

Tools specific to Lam 3:53

Unchecked Copy Box Lam 3:53

They have silenced [fn]me in the pit
And have [fn]placed a stone on me.

Tools specific to Lam 3:54

Unchecked Copy Box Lam 3:54

Waters flowed over my head;
I said, “I am cut off!”

Tools specific to Lam 3:55

Unchecked Copy Box Lam 3:55

I called on Your name, O LORD,
Out of the lowest pit.

Tools specific to Lam 3:56

Unchecked Copy Box Lam 3:56

“Do not hide Your ear from my prayer for relief,
From my cry for help.”

You drew near when I called on You;
You said, “Do not fear!”

Unchecked Copy Box Lam 3:58

O Lord, You have pleaded my soul’s cause;
You have redeemed my life.

Unchecked Copy Box Lam 3:59

O LORD, You have seen my oppression;
Judge my case.

All their schemes against me.

Tools specific to Lam 3:61

Unchecked Copy Box Lam 3:61

You have heard their reproach, O LORD,
All their schemes against me.

Tools specific to Lam 3:62

Unchecked Copy Box Lam 3:62

The lips of my assailants and their whispering
Are against me all day long.

Tools specific to Lam 3:63

Unchecked Copy Box Lam 3:63

Look on their sitting and their rising;
I am their mocking song.

Tools specific to Lam 3:64

Unchecked Copy Box Lam 3:64

You will recompense them, O LORD,
According to the work of their hands.

Tools specific to Lam 3:65

Unchecked Copy Box Lam 3:65

You will give them [fn]hardness of heart,
Your curse will be on them.

Tools specific to Lam 3:66

Unchecked Copy Box Lam 3:66

You will pursue them in anger and destroy them
From under the heavens of the LORD!
