|耶利米哀歌-Lamentations 第 5 章|
Remember, O Jehovah, what has come upon us; Look and see our reproach.
Our inheritance has been turned over to strangers, Our houses to foreigners.
We are orphans without father; Our mothers are like widows.
We have drunk our water for money; Our wood comes to us at a price.
On our necks are our pursuers; We are weary; we have no rest.
We have given our hand to Egypt And to Assyria, so as to be satisfied with bread.
Our fathers sinned and they are not, And we ourselves bear their iniquities.
Slaves rule over us; There is no one to deliver us from their hand.
We get our bread at the risk of our lives Because of the sword from the wilderness.
Our skin is black like an oven Because of the burning heat of famine.
They have ravished the women in Zion, The virgins in the cities of Judah.
Princes were hanged by them. The faces of the elders were not honored.
The young men bore the mill, And the young boys stumbled under the wood.
The old men have ceased from the gate, The young men from their music.
The joy of our heart has ceased; Our dance has been turned into mourning.
The crown has fallen from our head. Woe to us! For we have sinned.
Because of this our heart is faint; Because of these things our eyes are dim;
Because of Mount Zion, which is desolate-Foxes rove in it.
You, O Jehovah, abide forever; Your throne is from generation to generation.
Why do You forget us forever And forsake us for so long a time?
Turn to us, O Jehovah, and we will be turned; Renew our days as before.
Or have You utterly rejected us? Are You exceedingly angry with us?
