Chapter 5

5:1 Remember, O Jehovah, what hath befallen us, Look attentively, and see our reproach.

5:2 Our inheritance hath been turned to strangers, Our houses to foreigners.

5:3 Orphans we have been -- without a father, our mothers `are' as widows.

5:4 Our water for money we have drunk, Our wood for a price doth come.

5:5 For our neck we have been pursued, We have laboured -- there hath been no rest for us.

5:6 `To' Egypt we have given a hand, `To' Asshur, to be satisfied with bread.

5:7 Our fathers have sinned -- they are not, We their iniquities have borne.

5:8 Servants have ruled over us, A deliverer there is none from their hand.

5:9 With our lives we bring in our bread, Because of the sword of the wilderness.

5:10 Our skin as an oven hath been burning, Because of the raging of the famine.

5:11 Wives in Zion they have humbled, Virgins -- in cities of Judah.

5:12 Princes by their hand have been hanged, The faces of elders have not been honoured.

5:13 Young men to grind they have taken, And youths with wood have stumbled.

5:14 The aged from the gate have ceased, Young men from their song.

5:15 Ceased hath the joy of our heart, Turned to mourning hath been our dancing.

5:16 Fallen hath the crown `from' our head, Wo `is' now to us, for we have sinned.

5:17 For this hath our heart been sick, For these have our eyes been dim.

5:18 For the mount of Zion -- that is desolate, Foxes have gone up on it.

5:19 Thou, O Jehovah, to the age remainest, Thy throne to generation and generation.

5:20 Why for ever dost Thou forget us? Thou forsakest us for length of days!

5:21 Turn us back, O Jehovah, unto Thee, And we turn back, renew our days as of old.

5:22 For hast Thou utterly rejected us? Thou hast been wroth against us -- exceedingly?
