19 Have you rejected Judah completely?

Do you despise Zion?

Why have you afflicted us

so that we cannot be healed?

We hoped for peace

but no good has come,

for a time of healing

but there is only terror.

20 We acknowledge our wickedness, Lord,

and the guilt of our ancestors;

we have indeed sinned against you.

21 For the sake of your name do not despise us;

do not dishonor your glorious throne.

Remember your covenant with us

and do not break it.

Do the skies themselves send down showers?

No, it is you, Lord our God.

Therefore our hope is in you,

for you are the one who does all this.

For we have sinned against thee.

Do not disgrace the throne of thy glory:

Remember, break not thy covenant with us.

Art not thou he, O Lord our God? therefore we will wait upon thee:

For thou hast made all these things.

Do not disgrace your own glorious throne.

Please remember us,

and do not break your covenant with us.
