Contents: Lamentations 1:10-12; 3:53, 56, 59, 62
10 The adversary has spread out his hand on all her pleasant things;
for she has seen that the nations have entered into her sanctuary,
concerning whom you commanded that they should not enter into your assembly.
11 All her people sigh.
They seek bread.
They have given their pleasant things for food to refresh their soul.
Look, Yahweh, and see;
for I have become despised.
12 Is it nothing to you, all you who pass by?
Look, and see if there is any sorrow like my sorrow,
which is brought on me,
with which Yahweh has afflicted me in the day of his fierce anger.
53 They have cut off my life in the dungeon,
and have cast a stone on me.
56 You heard my voice:
Dont hide your ear from my sighing,
and my cry.
59 Yahweh, you have seen my wrong.
Judge my cause.
62 the lips of those that rose up against me,
and their plots against me all day long.
