Lamentations March 8

1 I am someone who saw the suffering

caused by God’s angry rod.

2 He drove me away, forced me to walk

in darkness not light.

3 He turned his hand even against me, over

and over again, all day long.

4 He wore out my flesh and my skin;

he broke my bones.

5 He besieged me, surrounding me

with bitterness and weariness.
