Plant Ice Harvest Wind
What can I say for you, to what compare you
O daughter Jerusalem?
To what can I liken you, that I may comfort you,
O virgin daughter Zion?
For as vast as the sea is your ruin;
who can heal you?
Your prophets have seen for you
false and deceptive visions;
they have not exposed your iniquity
to restore your fortunes
but have seen oracles for you
that are false and misleading.
All who pass along the way
clap their hands at you;
they hiss and wag their heads
at daughter Jerusalem;
"Is this the city that was called
the perfection of beauty,
the joy of all the earth?"
All your enemies
open their mouths against you;
they hiss and gnash their teeth,
they cry: "We have devoured her!
Ah, this is the day we longed for;
at last we have seen it!"
The Lord has done what he purposed
he has carried out his threat;
as he ordained long ago,
he has demolished without pity;
he has made the enemy rejoice over you,
and exalted the might of your foes.
Arise, cry out in the night,
at the beginning of the watches!
--Lamentations II, 13-19
