Ankeny UCC Reads Lamentations March 29, 2015

5 Lord, consider what has become of us;

take notice of our disgrace. Look at it!

Our property has been turned

over to strangers;

our houses belong to foreigners.

We have become orphans,

having no father;

our mothers are like widows.

We drink our own water—but for a price;

we gather our own wood—

but pay for it.

Our hunters have been at our necks;

we are worn out, but have no rest.
