English.png English translation

The Lord was minded to bring down in ruins
the walls of the daughter of Zion;
he took their measure with his line
and did not scruple to demolish her;
he made rampart and wall lament, and
both together lay dejected.

My eyes are blinded with tears,
my bowels writhe in anguish.
In my bitterness my bile is spilt on the earth.
The daughters of my people and the sucking child
faint away in the streets of the town.
Jerusalem, turn again to the Lord your God.
