             [ Read Chapter | Discuss these Verses ]
1 How is the gold become dim (8714)! how is the most fine gold changed (8799)! the stones of the sanctuary are poured out (8691) in the top of every street. 2 The precious sons of Zion, comparable (8794) to fine gold, how are they esteemed (8738) as earthen pitchers, the work of the hands of the potter (8802)! 3 Even the sea monsters draw out (8804) the breast, they give suck (8689) to their young ones: the daughter of my people is become cruel, like the ostriches in the wilderness. 4 The tongue of the sucking child (8802) cleaveth (8804) to the roof of his mouth for thirst: the young children ask (8804) bread, and no man breaketh (8802) it unto them. 5 They that did feed (8802) delicately are desolate (8738) in the streets: they that were brought up (8803) in scarlet embrace (8765) dunghills. 6 For the punishment of the iniquity of the daughter of my people is greater (8799) than the punishment of the sin of Sodom, that was overthrown (8803) as in a moment, and no hands stayed (8804) on her. 7 Her Nazarites were purer (8804) than snow, they were whiter (8804) than milk, they were more ruddy (8804) in body than rubies, their polishing was of sapphire: 8 Their visage is blacker (8804) than a coal; they are not known (8738) in the streets: their skin cleaveth (8804) to their bones; it is withered (8804), it is become like a stick. 9 They that be slain with the sword are better than they that be slain with hunger: for these pine away (8799), stricken (8794) through for want of the fruits of the field. 10 The hands of the pitiful women have sodden (8765) their own children: they were their meat (8763) in the destruction of the daughter of my people. 11 The LORD hath accomplished (8765) his fury; he hath poured out (8804) his fierce anger, and hath kindled (8686) a fire in Zion, and it hath devoured (8799) the foundations thereof. 12 The kings of the earth, and all the inhabitants (8802) of the world, would not have believed (8689) that the adversary and the enemy (8802) should have entered (8799) into the gates of Jerusalem.
