025:005:001
Remember,
O LORD,
what is come upon us:
consider,
and behold our reproach.


025:005:002
Our inheritance is turned to strangers,
our houses to aliens.


025:005:003
We are orphans and fatherless,
our mothers are as widows.


025:005:004
We have drunken our water for money;
our wood is sold unto us.


025:005:005
Our necks are under persecution:
we labour,
and have no rest.


025:005:006
We have given the hand to the Egyptians,
and to the Assyrians,
to be satisfied with bread.


025:005:007
Our fathers have sinned,
and are not;
and we have borne their iniquities.


025:005:008
Servants have ruled over us:
there is none that doth deliver us out of their hand.


025:005:009
We gat our bread with the peril of our lives because of the sword of the wilderness.


025:005:010
Our skin was black like an oven because of the terrible famine.


025:005:011
They ravished the women in Zion,
and the maids in the cities of Judah.


025:005:012
Princes are hanged up by their hand:
the faces of elders were not honoured.


025:005:013
They took the young men to grind,
and the children fell under the wood.


025:005:014
The elders have ceased from the gate,
the young men from their musick.


025:005:015
The joy of our heart is ceased;
our dance is turned into mourning.


025:005:016
The crown is fallen from our head:
woe unto us,
that we have sinned!


025:005:017
For this our heart is faint;
for these things our eyes are dim.


025:005:018
Because of the mountain of Zion,
which is desolate,
the foxes walk upon it.


025:005:019
Thou,
O LORD,
remainest for ever;
thy throne from generation to generation.


025:005:020
Wherefore dost thou forget us for ever,
and forsake us so long time?


025:005:021
Turn thou us unto thee,
O LORD,
and we shall be turned;
renew our days as of old.


025:005:022
But thou hast utterly rejected us;
thou art very wroth against us.
