Lamentations 4 March 28

20 Our king, our life’s breath, the anointed of God,

was caught in their traps—

Our king under whose protection

we always said we’d live.

21 Celebrate while you can, O Edom!

Live it up in Uz!

For it won’t be long before you drink this cup, too.

You’ll find out what it’s like to drink God’s wrath,

Get drunk on God’s wrath

and wake up with nothing, stripped naked.

22 And that’s it for you, Zion. The punishment’s complete.

You won’t have to go through this exile again.

But Edom, your time is coming:

He’ll punish your evil life, put all your sins on display.
