Lamentations March 9

6 He made me live in dark places

like those who’ve been dead

a long time.

7 He walled me in so I couldn’t escape;

he made my chains heavy.

8 Even though I call out and cry for help,

he silences my prayer.

9 He walled in my paths with stonework;

he made my routes crooked.

10 He is a bear lurking for me,

a lion in hiding.
