Unchecked Copy BoxLam 4:1 - How is the gold become dim, Changed the best -- the pure gold? Poured out are stones of the sanctuary At the head of all out-places.

Unchecked Copy BoxLam 4:2 - The precious sons of Zion, Who are comparable with fine gold, How have they been reckoned earthen bottles, Work of the hands of a potter.

Unchecked Copy BoxLam 4:3 - Even dragons have drawn out the breast, They have suckled their young ones, The daughter of my people is become cruel, Like the ostriches in a wilderness.

Unchecked Copy BoxLam 4:4 - Cleaved hath the tongue of a suckling unto his palate with thirst, Infants asked bread, a dealer out they have none.

Unchecked Copy BoxLam 4:5 - Those eating of dainties have been desolate in out-places, Those supported on scarlet have embraced dunghills.

Unchecked Copy BoxLam 4:6 - And greater is the iniquity of the daughter of my people, Than the sin of Sodom, That was overturned as in a moment, And no hands were stayed on her.

Unchecked Copy BoxLam 4:7 - Purer were her Nazarites than snow, Whiter than milk, ruddier of body than rubies, Of sapphire their form.

Unchecked Copy BoxLam 4:8 - Darker than blackness hath been their visage, They have not been known in out-places, Cleaved hath their skin unto their bone, It hath withered -- it hath been as wood.

Unchecked Copy BoxLam 4:9 - Better have been the pierced of a sword Than the pierced of famine, For these flow away, pierced through, Without the increase of the field.

Unchecked Copy BoxLam 4:10 - The hands of merciful women have boiled their own children, They have been for food to them, In the destruction of the daughter of my people.

Unchecked Copy BoxLam 4:11 - Completed hath Jehovah His fury, He hath poured out the fierceness of His anger, And he kindleth a fire in Zion, And it devoureth her foundations.

Unchecked Copy BoxLam 4:12 - Believe not did the kings of earth, And any of the inhabitants of the world, That come would an adversary and enemy Into the gates of Jerusalem.

Unchecked Copy BoxLam 4:13 - Because of the sins of her prophets, The iniquities of her priests, Who are shedding in her midst the blood of the righteous,

Unchecked Copy BoxLam 4:14 - They have wandered naked in out-places, They have been polluted with blood, Without any being able to touch their clothing,

Unchecked Copy BoxLam 4:15 - 'Turn aside -- unclean,' they called to them, 'Turn aside, turn aside, touch not,' For they fled -- yea, they have wandered, They have said among nations: 'They do not add to sojourn.'

Unchecked Copy BoxLam 4:16 - The face of Jehovah hath divided them, He doth not add to behold them, The face of priests they have not lifted up, Elders they have not favoured.

Unchecked Copy BoxLam 4:17 - While we exist -- consumed are our eyes for our vain help, In our watch-tower we have watched for a nation that saveth not.

Unchecked Copy BoxLam 4:18 - They have hunted our steps from going in our broad-places, Near hath been our end, fulfilled our days, For come hath our end.

Unchecked Copy BoxLam 4:19 - Swifter have been our pursuers, Than the eagles of the heavens, On the mountains they have burned after us, In the wilderness they have laid wait for us.

Unchecked Copy BoxLam 4:20 - The breath of our nostrils -- the anointed of Jehovah, Hath been captured in their pits, of whom we said: 'In his shadow we do live among nations.'

Unchecked Copy BoxLam 4:21 - Joy and rejoice, O daughter of Edom, Dwelling in the land of Uz, Even unto thee pass over doth a cup, Thou art drunk, and makest thyself naked.

Unchecked Copy BoxLam 4:22 - Completed is thy iniquity, daughter of Zion, He doth not add to remove thee, He hath inspected thy iniquity, O daughter of Edom, He hath removed thee because of thy sins!
