Lamentations, March 6

17 Zion spreads out her hands;

she has no comforter.

The Lord commanded Jacob’s enemies to

surround him.

Jerusalem is just a piece of garbage to them.

18 The Lord is right

because I disobeyed his word.

Listen, all you people;

look at my suffering.

My young women and young men

have gone away as prisoners.

19 I called to my lovers, but they deceived me.

My priests and my elders

have perished in the city;

they were looking for food to survive.
