Lamentations 3:1–20

I am athe man that bhath seen affliction cby the rod of his wrath.

He hath led me, and dbrought me into darkness, but not into light.

Surely against me is he turned; he turneth his hand against me all the day.

My flesh and my skin ehath he made old; fhe hath broken my bones.

gHe hath builded against me, and hcompassed me with igall and ktravail.

lHe hath set me in dark places, las they that be dead of old.

mHe hath hedged me about, nthat I cannot get out: he hath made my chain heavy.

Also owhen I cry and shout, he shutteth out my prayer.

mHe hath inclosed my ways with hewn stone, he hath pmade my paths crooked.

10  He was unto me as qa bear lying in wait, and as ra lion in secret places.

11  He hath turned aside my ways, and spulled me in pieces: he hath made me tdesolate.

12  He uhath bent his bow, and vset me as a mark for the arrow.

13  wHe hath caused the arrows of his quiver to enter into my reins.

14  I was xa derision to all my people; and ytheir song all the day.

15  zHe hath filled me with bitterness, ahe hath made me drunken with wormwood.

16  He hath also broken my teeth with bgravel stones, he hath ||covered me with ashes.

17  And thou hast bbremoved my soul far off from peace: I forgat prosperity.

18  cAnd I said, ccMy strength and dmy hope is perished from the Lord:

19  ||Remembering mine eaffliction and my emisery, athe wormwood and fthe gall.

20  My soul hath them still in remembrance, and is humbled in me.
