1:1 How doth the city [H5892] sit [H3427] solitary [H910] , [that was] full [H7227] of people [H5971] ! [how] is she become as a widow [H490] ! she [that was] great [H7227] among the nations [H1471] , [and] princess [H8282] among the provinces [H4082] , [how] is she become tributary [H4522] !
1:2 She weepeth [H1058] sore [H1058] in the night [H3915] , and her tears [H1832] [are] on her cheeks [H3895] : among all her lovers [H157] she hath none to comfort [H5162] [her]: all her friends [H7453] have dealt treacherously [H898] with her, they are become her enemies [H341] .
1:3 Judah [H3063] is gone into captivity [H1540] because of affliction [H6040] , and because of great [H7230] servitude [H5656] : she dwelleth [H3427] among the heathen [H1471] , she findeth [H4672] no rest [H4494] : all her persecutors [H7291] overtook [H5381] her between the straits [H4712] .(because of great: Heb. for the greatness of servitude)
1:4 The ways [H1870] of Zion [H6726] do mourn [H57] , because none come [H935] to the solemn feasts [H4150] : all her gates [H8179] are desolate [H8074] : her priests [H3548] sigh [H584] , her virgins [H1330] are afflicted [H3013] , and she [is] in bitterness [H4843] .
1:5 Her adversaries [H6862] are the chief [H7218] , her enemies [H341] prosper [H7951] ; for the LORD [H3068] hath afflicted [H3013] her for the multitude [H7230] of her transgressions [H6588] : her children [H5768] are gone [H1980] into captivity [H7628] before [H6440] the enemy [H6862] .
1:6 And from the daughter [H1323] of Zion [H6726] all her beauty [H1926] is departed [H3318] : her princes [H8269] are become like harts [H354] [that] find [H4672] no pasture [H4829] , and they are gone [H3212] without strength [H3581] before [H6440] the pursuer [H7291] .
1:7 Jerusalem [H3389] remembered [H2142] in the days [H3117] of her affliction [H6040] and of her miseries [H4788] all her pleasant things [H4262] that she had in the days [H3117] of old [H6924] , when her people [H5971] fell [H5307] into the hand [H3027] of the enemy [H6862] , and none did help [H5826] her: the adversaries [H6862] saw [H7200] her, [and] did mock [H7832] at her sabbaths [H4868] .(pleasant: or, desirable)
1:8 Jerusalem [H3389] hath grievously [H2399] sinned [H2398] ; therefore she is removed [H5206] : all that honoured [H3513] her despise [H2107] her, because they have seen [H7200] her nakedness [H6172] : yea, she sigheth [H584] , and turneth [H7725] backward [H268] .(is: Heb. is become a removing, or, wandering)
1:9 Her filthiness [H2932] [is] in her skirts [H7757] ; she remembereth [H2142] not her last end [H319] ; therefore she came down [H3381] wonderfully [H6382] : she had no comforter [H5162] . O LORD [H3068] , behold [H7200] my affliction [H6040] : for the enemy [H341] hath magnified [H1431] [himself].
1:10 The adversary [H6862] hath spread out [H6566] his hand [H3027] upon all her pleasant things [H4261] : for she hath seen [H7200] [that] the heathen [H1471] entered [H935] into her sanctuary [H4720] , whom thou didst command [H6680] [that] they should not enter [H935] into thy congregation [H6951] .(pleasant: or, desirable)
1:11 All her people [H5971] sigh [H584] , they seek [H1245] bread [H3899] ; they have given [H5414] their pleasant things [H4261] [H4262] for meat [H400] to relieve [H7725] the soul [H5315] : see [H7200] , O LORD [H3068] , and consider [H5027] ; for I am become vile [H2151] .(to: or, to make the soul to come again)
1:12 [Is it] nothing to you, all ye that pass [H5674] by [H1870] ? behold [H5027] , and see [H7200] if there be [H3426] any sorrow [H4341] like unto my sorrow [H4341] , which is done [H5953] unto me, wherewith the LORD [H3068] hath afflicted [H3013] [me] in the day [H3117] of his fierce [H2740] anger [H639] .(Is it: or, It is nothing)(pass by: Heb. pass by the way?)
1:13 From above [H4791] hath he sent [H7971] fire [H784] into my bones [H6106] , and it prevaileth [H7287] against them: he hath spread [H6566] a net [H7568] for my feet [H7272] , he hath turned [H7725] me back [H268] : he hath made [H5414] me desolate [H8074] [and] faint [H1739] all the day [H3117] .
1:14 The yoke [H5923] of my transgressions [H6588] is bound [H8244] by his hand [H3027] : they are wreathed [H8276] , [and] come up [H5927] upon my neck [H6677] : he hath made my strength [H3581] to fall [H3782] , the Lord [H136] hath delivered [H5414] me into [their] hands [H3027] , [from whom] I am not able [H3201] to rise up [H6965] .
1:15 The Lord [H136] hath trodden under foot [H5541] all my mighty [H47] [men] in the midst [H7130] of me: he hath called [H7121] an assembly [H4150] against me to crush [H7665] my young men [H970] : the Lord [H136] hath trodden [H1869] the virgin [H1330] , the daughter [H1323] of Judah [H3063] , [as] in a winepress [H1660] .(the virgin: or, the winepress of the virgin, etc)
1:16 For these [things] I weep [H1058] ; mine eye [H5869] , mine eye [H5869] runneth down [H3381] with water [H4325] , because the comforter [H5162] that should relieve [H7725] my soul [H5315] is far [H7368] from me: my children [H1121] are desolate [H8074] , because the enemy [H341] prevailed [H1396] .(relieve: Heb. bring back)
1:17 Zion [H6726] spreadeth forth [H6566] her hands [H3027] , [and there is] none to comfort [H5162] her: the LORD [H3068] hath commanded [H6680] concerning Jacob [H3290] , [that] his adversaries [H6862] [should be] round about [H5439] him: Jerusalem [H3389] is as a menstruous woman [H5079] among them.
1:18 The LORD [H3068] is righteous [H6662] ; for I have rebelled [H4784] against his commandment [H6310] : hear [H8085] , I pray you, all people [H5971] , and behold [H7200] my sorrow [H4341] : my virgins [H1330] and my young men [H970] are gone [H1980] into captivity [H7628] .(commandment: Heb. mouth)
1:19 I called [H7121] for my lovers [H157] , [but] they deceived [H7411] me: my priests [H3548] and mine elders [H2205] gave up the ghost [H1478] in the city [H5892] , while they sought [H1245] their meat [H400] to relieve [H7725] their souls [H5315] .
1:20 Behold [H7200] , O LORD [H3068] ; for I [am] in distress [H6887] : my bowels [H4578] are troubled [H2560] ; mine heart [H3820] is turned [H2015] within [H7130] me; for I have grievously [H4784] rebelled [H4784] : abroad [H2351] the sword [H2719] bereaveth [H7921] , at home [H1004] [there is] as death [H4194] .
1:21 They have heard [H8085] that I sigh [H584] : [there is] none to comfort [H5162] me: all mine enemies [H341] have heard [H8085] of my trouble [H7451] ; they are glad [H7797] that thou hast done [H6213] [it]: thou wilt bring [H935] the day [H3117] [that] thou hast called [H7121] , and they shall be like [H3644] unto me.(called: or, proclaimed)
1:22 Let all their wickedness [H7451] come [H935] before [H6440] thee; and do [H5953] unto them, as thou hast done [H5953] unto me for all my transgressions [H6588] : for my sighs [H585] [are] many [H7227] , and my heart [H3820] [is] faint [H1742] .
