The ways of Zion do mourn, because none come to the solemn feasts: all her gates are desolate: her priests sigh, her virgins are afflicted, and she is in bitterness.
For these things I weep: mine eye runneth down with water, because the comforter that should relieve my soul is far from me.
See, O Lord, and consider; for I am become vile
Her adversaries are the chief, her enemies prosper; for the Lord hath afflicted her for the multitude of her transgressions: her children are gone into captivity before the enemy.
For these things I weep: mine eye runneth down with water, because the comforter that should relieve my soul is far from me.
See, O Lord, and consider; for I am become vile.

Lamentations 1:4-5; 1:11
