|1 ALEPH. How has the Lord darkened in his wrath the daughter of Sion! he has cast down the glory of Israel from heaven to earth, and has not remembered his footstool. 2 BETH. In the day of his wrath the Lord has overwhelmed [her] as in the sea, [and] not spared: he has brought down in his fury all the beautiful things of Jacob; he has brought down to the ground the strong-holds of the daughter of Juda; he has profaned her kings and her princes. 3 GIMEL. He has broken in his fierce anger all the horn of Israel: he has turned back his right hand from the face of the enemy, and has kindled a flame in Jacob as a fire, and it has devoured all things round about. 4 DALETH. He has bent his bow as an opposing enemy: he has strengthened his right hand as an adversary, and has destroyed all the desirable things of my eyes in the tabernacle of the daughter of Sion: he has poured forth his anger as fire. 5 HE. The Lord is become as an enemy: he has overwhelmed Israel as in the sea, he has overwhelmed her palaces: he has destroyed her strong-holds, and has multiplied the afflicted and humbled ones to the daughter of Juda. 6 VAU. And he has scattered his tabernacle as a vine, he has marred his feast: the Lord has forgotten the feast and the sabbath which he appointed in Sion, and in the fury of his wrath has vexed the king, and priest, and prince. 7 ZAIN. The Lord has rejected his altar, he has cast off his sanctuary, he has broken by the hand of the enemy the wall of her palaces; they have uttered their voice in the house of the Lord as on a feast day. 8 HETH. And he has turned to destroy the wall of the daughter of Sion: he has stretched out the measuring line, he has not turned back his hand from afflicting [her]: therefore the bulwark mourned, and the wall was weakened with it. 9 TETH. Her gates are sunk into the ground: he has destroyed and broken to pieces her bars, [and] her king and her prince among the Gentiles: there is no law, nay, her prophets have seen no vision from the Lord. 10 JOD. The elders of the daughter of Sion have sat upon the ground, they have kept silence: they have cast up dust upon their heads; they have girded themselves with sackcloths: they have brought down to the ground the chief virgins in Jerusalem. 11 CHAPH. Mine eyes have failed with tears, my heart is troubled, my glory is cast down to the ground, for the destruction of the daughter of my people; while the infant and suckling swoon in the streets of the city. 12 LAMED. They said to their mothers, Where is corn and wine? while they fainted like wounded men in the streets of the city, while their souls were poured out into their mother’s bosom. 13 MEM. What shall I testify to thee, or what shall I compare to thee, O daughter of Jerusalem? who shall save and comfort thee, O virgin daughter of Sion? for the cup of thy destruction is enlarged: who shall heal thee? 14 NUN. Thy prophets have seen for thee vanities and folly: and they have not discovered thine iniquity, to turn back thy captivity; but they have seen for thee vain burdens, and worthless visions. 15 SAMECH. All that go by the way have clapped their hands at thee; they have hissed and shaken their head at the daughter of Jerusalem. Is this the city, they say, the crown of joy of all the earth? 16 AIN. All thine enemies have opened their mouth against thee: they have hissed and gnashed their teeth, and said, We have swallowed her up: moreover this is the day which we looked for; we have found it, we have seen it. 17 PHE. The Lord has done that which he purposed; he has accomplished his word, [even] the things which he commanded from the ancient days: he has thrown down, and has not spared: and he has caused the enemy to rejoice over thee, he has exalted the horn of him that afflicted thee. 18 TSADE. Their heart cried to the Lord, Ye walls of Sion, pour down tears like torrents day and night: give thyself no rest; let not the apple of thine eyes cease. 19 KOPH. Arise, rejoice in the night at the beginning of thy watch: pour out thy heart as water before the face of the Lord lift up thy hands to him for the life of thine infants, who faint for hunger at the top of all the streets. 20 RHECHS. Behold, O Lord, and see for whom thou has gathered thus. Shall the women eat the fruit of their womb? the cook has made a gathering: shall the infants sucking at the breasts be slain? wilt thou slay the priest and prophet in the sanctuary of the Lord? 21 CHSEN. The child and old man have lain down in the street: my virgins and my young men are gone into captivity: thou hast slain [them] with the sword and with famine; in the day of thy wrath thou hast mangled [them], thou has not spared. 22 THAU. He has called my sojourners round about to a solemn day, and there was not in the day of the wrath of the Lord any one that escaped or was left; whereas I have strengthened and multiplied all mine enemies.||
ΠΩΣ ἐγνόφωσεν ἐν ὀργῇ αὐτοῦ Κύριος τὴν θυγατέρα Σιών; κατέρριψεν ἐξ οὐρανοῦ εἰς γῆν δόξασμα ᾿Ισραήλ, καὶ οὐκ ἐμνήσθη ὑποποδίου ποδῶν αὐτοῦ ἐν ἡμέρᾳ ὀργῆς αὐτοῦ. 2 Κατεπόντισε Κύριος οὐ φεισάμενος πάντα τὰ ὡραῖα ᾿Ιακώβ, καθεῖλεν ἐν θυμῷ αὐτοῦ τὰ ὀχυρώματα τῆς θυγατρὸς ᾿Ιούδα, ἐκόλλησεν εἰς τὴν γῆν, ἐβεβήλωσε βασιλέα αὐτῆς καὶ ἄρχοντας αὐτῆς. 3 Συνέκλασεν ἐν ὀργῇ θυμοῦ αὐτοῦ πᾶν κέρας ᾿Ισραήλ, ἀπέστρεψεν ὀπίσω δεξιὰν αὐτοῦ ἀπὸ προσώπου ἐχθροῦ καὶ ἀνῆψεν ἐν ᾿Ιακὼβ ὡς πῦρ φλόγα, καὶ κατέφαγε πάντα τὰ κύκλῳ. 4 ᾿Ενέτεινε τόξον αὐτοῦ ὡς ἐχθρός, ἐστερέωσε δεξιὰν αὐτοῦ ὡς ὑπεναντίος καὶ ἀπέκτεινε πάντα τὰ ἐπιθυμήματα τῶν ὀφθαλμῶν μου ἐν σκηνῇ θυγατρὸς Σιών, ἐξέχεεν ὡς πῦρ τὸν θυμὸν αὐτοῦ. 5 ᾿Εγενήθη Κύριος ὡς ἐχθρός, κατεπόντισεν ᾿Ισραήλ, κατεπόντισε πάσας τὰς βάρεις αὐτῆς, διέφθειρε τὰ ὀχυρώματα αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐπλήθυνε τῇ θυγατρὶ ᾿Ιούδα ταπεινουμένην καὶ τεταπεινωμένην. 6 Καὶ διεπέτασεν ὡς ἄμπελον τὸ σκήνωμα αὐτοῦ, διέφθειρεν ἑορτὴν αὐτοῦ· ἐπελάθετο Κύριος ἃ ἐποίησεν ἐν Σιὼν ἑορτῆς καὶ σαββάτου καὶ παρώξυνεν ἐμβριμήματι ὀργῆς αὐτοῦ βασιλέα καὶ ἱερέα καὶ ἄρχοντα. 7 ᾿Απώσατο Κύριος θυσιαστήριον αὐτοῦ, ἀπετίναξεν ἁγίασμα αὐτοῦ, συνέτριψεν ἐν χειρὶ ἐχθροῦ τεῖχος βάρεων αὐτῆς· φωνὴν ἔδωκαν ἐν οἴκῳ Κυρίου ὡς ἐν ἡμέρᾳ ἑορτῆς. 8 Καὶ ἐπέστρεψε Κύριος τοῦ διαφθεῖραι τεῖχος θυγατρὸς Σιών· ἐξέτεινε μέτρον, οὐκ ἀπέστρεψε χεῖρα αὐτοῦ ἀπὸ καταπατήματος, καὶ ἐπένθησε τὸ προτείχισμα, καὶ τεῖχος ὁμοθυμαδὸν ἠσθένησεν. 9 ᾿Ενεπάγησαν εἰς γῆν πύλαι αὐτῆς, ἀπώλεσε καὶ συνέτριψε μοχλοὺς αὐτῆς· βασιλέα αὐτῆς καὶ ἄρχοντα αὐτῆς ἐν τοῖς ἔθνεσιν· οὐκ ἔστι νόμος, καί γε προφῆται αὐτῆς οὐκ εἶδον ὅρασιν παρὰ Κυρίου. 10 ᾿Εκάθισαν εἰς τὴν γῆν, ἐσιώπησαν πρεσβύτεροι θυγατρὸς Σιών, ἀνεβίβασαν χοῦν ἐπὶ τὴν κεφαλὴν αὐτῶν, περιεζώσαντο σάκκους, κατήγαγον εἰς γῆν ἀρχηγοὺς παρθένους ἐν ῾Ιερουσαλήμ. 11 ᾿Εξέλιπον ἐν δάκρυσιν οἱ ὀφθαλμοί μου, ἐταράχθη ἡ καρδία μου, ἐξεχύθη εἰς τὴν γῆν ἡ δόξα μου ἐπὶ τὸ σύντριμμα τῆς θυγατρὸς τοῦ λαοῦ μου ἐν τῷ ἐκλείπειν νήπιον καὶ θηλάζοντα ἐν πλατείαις πόλεως. 12 Ταῖς μητράσιν αὐτῶν εἶπαν· ποῦ σῖτος καὶ οἶνος; ἐν τῷ ἐκλύεσθαι αὐτοὺς ὡς τραυματίας ἐν πλατείαις πόλεως, ἐν τῷ ἐκχεῖσθαι αὐτοὺς ὡς τραυματίας ἐν πλατείαις πόλεως, ἐν τῷ ἐκχεῖσθαι ψυχὰς αὐτῶν εἰς κόλπον μητέρων αὐτῶν. 13 Τί μαρτυρήσω σοι ἢ τί ὁμοιώσω σοι, θύγατερ ῾Ιερουσαλήμ; τίς σώσει σε καὶ παρακαλέσει σε, παρθένος θύγατερ Σιών; ὅτι ἐμεγαλύνθη ποτήριον συντριβῆς σου· τίς ἰάσεταί σε; 14 Προφῆταί σου εἴδοσάν σοι μάταια καὶ ἀφροσύνην καὶ οὐκ ἀπεκάλυψαν ἐπὶ τὴν ἀδικίαν σου τοῦ ἐπιστρέψαι αἰχμαλωσίαν σου, καὶ εἴδοσάν σοι λήμματα μάταια καὶ ἐξώσματα. 15 ᾿Εκρότησαν ἐπὶ σὲ χεῖρας πάντες οἱ παραπορευόμενοι ὁδόν, ἐσύρισαν καὶ ἐκίνησαν τὴν κεφαλὴν αὐτῶν ἐπὶ τὴν θυγατέρα ῾Ιερουσαλήμ· αὕτη ἡ πόλις, ἐροῦσι, στέφανος εὐφροσύνης πάσης τῆς γῆς. 16 Διήνοιξαν ἐπὶ σὲ στόμα αὐτῶν πάντες οἱ ἐχθροί σου, ἐσύρισαν καὶ ἔβρυξαν ὁδόντας, καὶ εἶπαν· κατεπίομεν αὐτήν, πλὴν αὕτη ἡ ἡμέρα, ἣν προσεδοκῶμεν, εὕρομεν αὐτήν, εἴδομεν. 17 ᾿Εποίησε Κύριος ἃ ἐνεθυμήθη, συνετέλεσε ῥήματα αὐτοῦ, ἃ ἐνετείλατο ἐξ ἡμερῶν ἀρχαίων, καθεῖλε καί οὐκ ἐφείσατο, καὶ ηὔφρανεν ἐπὶ σὲ ἐχθρόν, ὕψωσε κέρας θλίβοντός σε. 18 ᾿Εβόησε καρδία αὐτῶν πρὸς Κύριον· τείχη Σιών, καταγάγετε ὡς χειμάρρους δάκρυα ἡμέρας καὶ νυκτός· μὴ δῷς ἔκνηψιν σεαυτῇ, μὴ σιωπήσαιτο, θύγατερ, ὁ ὀφθαλμός σου. 19 ᾿Ανάστα, ἀγαλλίασαι ἐν νυκτὶ εἰς ἀρχὰς φυλακῆς σου, ἔκχεον ὡς ὕδωρ καρδίαν σου ἀπέναντι προσώπου Κυρίου, ἆρον πρὸς αὐτὸν χεῖράς σου περὶ ψυχῆς νηπίων σου τῶν ἐκλυομένων λιμῷ ἐπ’ ἀρχῆς πασῶν ἐξόδων. 20 ᾿Ιδέ, Κύριε, καὶ ἐπίβλεψον τίνι ἐπφφύλλισας οὕτως· εἰ φάγονται γυναῖκες καρπὸν κοιλίας αὐτῶν; ἐπιφυλλίδα ἐποίησε μάγειρος· φονευθήσονται νήπια θηλάζοντα μαστούς; ἀποκτενεῖς ἐν ἁγιάσματι Κυρίου ἱερέα καὶ προφήτην; 21 ᾿Εκοιμήθησαν εἰς τὴν ἔξοδον παιδάριον καὶ πρεσβύτης. παρθένοι μου καὶ νεανίσκοι μου ἐπορεύθησαν ἐν αἰχμαλωσίᾳ· ἐν ρομφαίᾳ καὶ ἐν λιμῷ ἀπέκτεινας, ἐν ἡμέρᾳ ὀργῆς σου ἐμαγείρευσας, οὐκ ἐφείσω. 22 ᾿Εκάλεσεν ἡμέραν ἑορτῆς παροικίας μου κυκλόθεν, καὶ οὐκ ἐγένοντο ἐν ἡμέρᾳ ὀργῆς Κυρίου ἀνασῳζόμενος καὶ καταλελειμμένος, ὡς ἐπεκράτησα καὶ ἐπλήθυνα ἐχθρούς μου πάντας.
