Jerusalem, surge, et exue te vestibus jucunditatis;
induere te cinere et cilicio:
quia in te occisus est Salvator Israel.
Deduc quasi torrentem lacrimas per diem et noctem,
et non taceat pupilla oculi tui.
Quia in te occisus est Salvator Israel.

Portuguese.png Portuguese translation

Jerusalem, levanta-te, larga estes vestidos de festa,
cobre-te de cinza e de cilício:
Porque em teu meio foi morto o Salvador de Israel.
Chora dia e noite torrentes de lágrimas,
não tenham descanso as pupilas dos teus olhos.
Porque em teu meio foi morto o Salvador de Israel.

by Francis Marchal
Lève-toi, Jérusalem, et ôte tes habits de joie;
couvre-toi d’un sac et asperge-toi de cendres:
car le Sauveur d’Israël a été immolé parmi ton peuple.
Laisse tes larmes couler comme un torrent,
et n’accorde aucun repos à la pupille de ton œil.
Car le Sauveur d’Israël a été immolé parmi ton peuple.

by Pierre-Etienne Dubi
Lève-toi, Jérusalem, et dépouille tes habits de réjouissance;
couvre-toi de la cendre et du cilice:
Car chez toi le Sauveur d’Israël a été mis a mort.
Laisse couler tes larmes en torrent, jour et nuit,
et que tes yeux ne connaissent plus de repos.
Car chez toi le Sauveur d’Israël a été mis a mort.

Italian.png Italian translation

Gerusalemme, orsù, dimetti le vesti della gioia.
Aspergiti di cenere, rivesti il cilicio:
poiché in te fu ucciso il Salvatore d'Israele.
Fà scorrere come torrente le tue lacrime, giorno e notte!
Non darti pace, non abbia tregua la pupilla del tuo occhio.
Poiché in te fu ucciso il Salvatore d'Israele.

Arise, O Jerusalem, and put off your garments of rejoicing;
cover yourself with sack-cloth and ashes:
for the Saviour of Israel has been slain in your midst.
Let your tears run down like a river, day and night,
and let not the apple of your eye cease.
For the Saviour of Israel has been slain in your midst.

by Charles Johnston
Arise, O Jerusalem, and put off thy garments of joy;
put on ashes and sackcloth:
For in thee was slain the Saviour of Israel.
Shed thy tears like a torrent, day and night,
and let not the apple of thine eye be dry.
For in thee was slain the Saviour of Israel.

by Anne Steeb & Bernd Müller
Erhebe dich, Jerusalem, und lege ab deine Festgewänder;
Bedecke dich mit Sacktuch und Asche:
Denn der Heiland Israels wurde in deiner Mitte niedergemacht.
Lass deine Tränen rinnen wie ein Strom bei Tag und Nacht,
auf dass dein Augapfel nicht nachlasse.
Denn der Heiland Israels wurde in deiner Mitte niedergemacht.

by Mathias Weibel
Erhebe dich Jerusalem, und entledige dich deiner Freudenkleider;
Zieh dein Bussgewand an und bestreue dich mit Asche:
denn der Retter Israels ist gestorben.
Lass deine Tränen Tag und Nacht in Bächen fliessen,
und die Pupillen deiner Augen sollen nicht zur Ruhe kommen.
Denn der Retter Israels ist gestorben.

Spanish.png Spanish translation

Jerusalén, despierta y despojate de tu vistosa indumentaria:
vístete con un saco y cúbrete de cenizas,
porque por ti ha muerto el Salvador de Israel.
Deja que fluyan tus lagrimas día y noche,
y que tus ojos lloren sin descanso.
Porque por ti ha muerto el Salvador de Israel.
