Eichah (Lamentations)

 Westminster Leningrad Codex Wiki English Translation‎ / World English Bible
1אֵיכָה֙ יוּעַ֣ם זָהָ֔ב יִשְׁנֶ֖א הַכֶּ֣תֶם הַטּ֑וֹב תִּשְׁתַּפֵּ֙כְנָה֙ אַבְנֵי ־ קֹ֔דֶשׁ בְּרֹ֖אשׁ כָּל ־ חוּצֽוֹת ׃ ס Lam 4:1
How is the gold become dim! how is the most pure gold changed!
The stones of the sanctuary are poured out at the head of every street.
2בְּנֵ֤י צִיּוֹן֙ הַיְקָרִ֔ים הַמְסֻלָּאִ֖ים בַּפָּ֑ז אֵיכָ֤ה נֶחְשְׁבוּ֙ לְנִבְלֵי ־ חֶ֔רֶשׂ מַעֲשֵׂ֖ה יְדֵ֥י יוֹצֵֽר ׃ ס Lam 4:2
The precious sons of Zion, comparable to fine gold,
How are they esteemed as earthen pitchers, the work of the hands of the potter!
3גַּם ־ ‏{ תנין תַּנִּים֙ }‏ חָ֣לְצוּ שַׁ֔ד הֵינִ֖יקוּ גּוּרֵיהֶ֑ן בַּת ־ עַמִּ֣י לְאַכְזָ֔ר ‏{ כי ענים כַּיְעֵנִ֖ים }‏ בַּמִּדְבָּֽר ׃ ס Lam 4:3
Even the jackals draw out the breast, they nurse their young ones:
The daughter of my people has become cruel, like the ostriches in the wilderness.
4דָּבַ֨ק לְשׁ֥וֹן יוֹנֵ֛ק אֶל ־ חִכּ֖וֹ בַּצָּמָ֑א עֽוֹלָלִים֙ שָׁ֣אֲלוּ לֶ֔חֶם פֹּרֵ֖שׂ אֵ֥ין לָהֶֽם ׃ ס Lam 4:4
The tongue of the nursing child clings to the roof of his mouth for thirst:
The young children ask bread, and no man breaks it to them.
5הָאֹֽכְלִים֙ לְמַ֣עֲדַנִּ֔ים נָשַׁ֖מּוּ בַּחוּצ֑וֹת הָאֱמֻנִים֙ עֲלֵ֣י תוֹלָ֔ע חִבְּק֖וּ אַשְׁפַּתּֽוֹת ׃ ס Lam 4:5
Those who did feed delicately are desolate in the streets:
Those who were brought up in scarlet embrace dunghills.
6וַיִּגְדַּל֙ עֲוֹ֣ן בַּת ־ עַמִּ֔י מֵֽחַטַּ֖את סְדֹ֑ם הַֽהֲפוּכָ֣ה כְמוֹ ־ רָ֔גַע וְלֹא ־ חָ֥לוּ בָ֖הּ יָדָֽיִם ׃ ס Lam 4:6
For the iniquity of the daughter of my people is greater than the sin of Sodom,
That was overthrown as in a moment, and no hands were laid on her.
7זַכּ֤וּ נְזִירֶ֙יהָ֙ מִשֶּׁ֔לֶג צַח֖וּ מֵחָלָ֑ב אָ֤דְמוּ עֶ֙צֶם֙ מִפְּנִינִ֔ים סַפִּ֖יר גִּזְרָתָֽם ׃ ס Lam 4:7
Her nobles were purer than snow, they were whiter than milk;
They were more ruddy in body than rubies, their polishing was as of sapphire.
8חָשַׁ֤ךְ מִשְּׁחוֹר֙ תָּֽאֳרָ֔ם לֹ֥א נִכְּר֖וּ בַּחוּצ֑וֹת צָפַ֤ד עוֹרָם֙ עַל ־ עַצְמָ֔ם יָבֵ֖שׁ הָיָ֥ה כָעֵֽץ ׃ ס Lam 4:8
Their appearance is blacker than a coal; they are not known in the streets:
Their skin clings to their bones; it is withered, it is become like a stick.
9טוֹבִ֤ים הָיוּ֙ חַלְלֵי ־ חֶ֔רֶב מֵֽחַלְלֵ֖י רָעָ֑ב שֶׁ֣הֵ֤ם יָז֙וּבוּ֙ מְדֻקָּרִ֔ים מִתְּנוּבֹ֖ת שָׂדָֽי ׃ ס Lam 4:9
Those who are killed with the sword are better than those who are killed with hunger;
For these pine away, stricken through, for want of the fruits of the field.
10יְדֵ֗י נָשִׁים֙ רַחֲמָ֣נִיּ֔וֹת בִּשְּׁל֖וּ יַלְדֵיהֶ֑ן הָי֤וּ לְבָרוֹת֙ לָ֔מוֹ בְּשֶׁ֖בֶר בַּת ־ עַמִּֽי ׃ ס Lam 4:10
The hands of the pitiful women have boiled their own children;
They were their food in the destruction of the daughter of my people.
11כִּלָּ֤ה יְהוָה֙ אֶת ־ חֲמָת֔וֹ שָׁפַ֖ךְ חֲר֣וֹן אַפּ֑וֹ וַיַּצֶּת ־ אֵ֣שׁ בְּצִיּ֔וֹן וַתֹּ֖אכַל יְסוֹדֹתֶֽיהָ ׃ ס Lam 4:11
Yahweh has accomplished his wrath, he has poured out his fierce anger;
He has kindled a fire in Zion, which has devoured its foundations.
12לֹ֤א הֶאֱמִ֙ינוּ֙ מַלְכֵי ־ אֶ֔רֶץ ‏{ וכל כֹּ֖ל }‏ יֹשְׁבֵ֣י תֵבֵ֑ל כִּ֤י יָבֹא֙ צַ֣ר וְאוֹיֵ֔ב בְּשַׁעֲרֵ֖י יְרוּשָׁלִָֽם ׃ ס Lam 4:12
The kings of the earth didn’t believe, neither all the inhabitants of the world,
That the adversary and the enemy would enter into the gates of Jerusalem.
13מֵֽחַטֹּ֣את נְבִיאֶ֔יהָ עֲוֹנ֖וֹת כֹּהֲנֶ֑יהָ הַשֹּׁפְכִ֥ים בְּקִרְבָּ֖הּ דַּ֥ם צַדִּיקִֽים ׃ ס Lam 4:13
It is because of the sins of her prophets, and the iniquities of her priests,
That have shed the blood of the just in the midst of her.
14נָע֤וּ עִוְרִים֙ בַּֽחוּצ֔וֹת נְגֹֽאֲל֖וּ בַּדָּ֑ם בְּלֹ֣א יֽוּכְל֔וּ יִגְּע֖וּ בִּלְבֻשֵׁיהֶֽם ׃ ס Lam 4:14
They wander as blind men in the streets, they are polluted with blood,
So that men can’t touch their garments.
15ס֣וּרוּ טָמֵ֞א קָ֣רְאוּ לָ֗מוֹ ס֤וּרוּ ס֙וּרוּ֙ אַל ־ תִּגָּ֔עוּ כִּ֥י נָצ֖וּ גַּם ־ נָ֑עוּ אָֽמְרוּ֙ בַּגּוֹיִ֔ם לֹ֥א יוֹסִ֖יפוּ לָגֽוּר ׃ ס Lam 4:15
Depart! they cried to them, Unclean! depart, depart, don’t touch!
When they fled away and wandered, men said among the nations, They shall no more live here.
16פְּנֵ֤י יְהוָה֙ חִלְּקָ֔ם לֹ֥א יוֹסִ֖יף לְהַבִּיטָ֑ם פְּנֵ֤י כֹהֲנִים֙ לֹ֣א נָשָׂ֔אוּ ‏{ זקנים וּזְקֵנִ֖ים }‏ לֹ֥א חָנָֽנוּ ׃ ס Lam 4:16
The anger of Yahweh has scattered them; he will no more regard them:
They didn’t respect the persons of the priests, they didn’t favor the elders.
17‏{ עודינה עוֹדֵ֙ינוּ֙ }‏ תִּכְלֶ֣ינָה עֵינֵ֔ינוּ אֶל ־ עֶזְרָתֵ֖נוּ הָ֑בֶל בְּצִפִּיָּתֵ֣נוּ צִפִּ֔ינוּ אֶל ־ גּ֖וֹי לֹ֥א יוֹשִֽׁעַ ׃ ס Lam 4:17
Our eyes do yet fail in looking for our vain help:
In our watching we have watched for a nation that could not save.
18צָד֣וּ צְעָדֵ֔ינוּ מִלֶּ֖כֶת בִּרְחֹבֹתֵ֑ינוּ קָרַ֥ב קִצֵּ֛ינוּ מָלְא֥וּ יָמֵ֖ינוּ כִּי ־ בָ֥א קִצֵּֽינוּ ׃ ס Lam 4:18
They hunt our steps, so that we can’t go in our streets:
Our end is near, our days are fulfilled; for our end is come.
19קַלִּ֤ים הָיוּ֙ רֹדְפֵ֔ינוּ מִנִּשְׁרֵ֖י שָׁמָ֑יִם עַל ־ הֶהָרִ֣ים דְּלָקֻ֔נוּ בַּמִּדְבָּ֖ר אָ֥רְבוּ לָֽנוּ ׃ ס Lam 4:19
Our pursuers were swifter than the eagles of the sky:
They chased us on the mountains, they laid wait for us in the wilderness.
20ר֤וּחַ אַפֵּ֙ינוּ֙ מְשִׁ֣יחַ יְהוָ֔ה נִלְכַּ֖ד בִּשְׁחִיתוֹתָ֑ם אֲשֶׁ֣ר אָמַ֔רְנוּ בְּצִלּ֖וֹ נִֽחְיֶ֥ה בַגּוֹיִֽם ׃ ס Lam 4:20
The breath of our nostrils, the anointed of Yahweh, was taken in their pits;
Of whom we said, Under his shadow we shall live among the nations.
21שִׂ֤ישִׂי וְשִׂמְחִי֙ בַּת ־ אֱד֔וֹם ‏{ יושבתי יוֹשֶׁ֖בֶת }‏ בְּאֶ֣רֶץ ע֑וּץ גַּם ־ עָלַ֙יִךְ֙ תַּעֲבָר ־ כּ֔וֹס תִּשְׁכְּרִ֖י וְתִתְעָרִֽי ׃ ס Lam 4:21
Rejoice and be glad, daughter of Edom, that dwell in the land of Uz:
The cup shall pass through to you also; you shall be drunken, and shall make yourself naked.
22תַּם ־ עֲוֹנֵךְ֙ בַּת ־ צִיּ֔וֹן לֹ֥א יוֹסִ֖יף לְהַגְלוֹתֵ֑ךְ פָּקַ֤ד עֲוֹנֵךְ֙ בַּת ־ אֱד֔וֹם גִּלָּ֖ה עַל ־ חַטֹּאתָֽיִךְ ׃ פ Lam 4:22
The punishment of your iniquity is accomplished, daughter of Zion; he will no more carry you away into captivity:
He will visit your iniquity, daughter of Edom; he will uncover your sins.
