New International Version
7 Your country is desolate,(A)
your cities burned with fire;(B)
your fields are being stripped by foreigners(C)
right before you,
laid waste as when overthrown by strangers.(D)
8 Daughter Zion(E) is left(F)
like a shelter in a vineyard,
like a hut(G) in a cucumber field,
like a city under siege.
9 Unless the Lord Almighty
had left us some survivors,(H)
we would have become like Sodom,
we would have been like Gomorrah.(I)
King James Version
7 Your country is desolate, your cities are burned with fire: your land, strangers devour it in your presence, and it is desolate, as overthrown by strangers.
8 And the daughter of Zion is left as a cottage in a vineyard, as a lodge in a garden of cucumbers, as a besieged city.
9 Except the Lord of hosts had left unto us a very small remnant, we should have been as Sodom, and we should have been like unto Gomorrah.Read full chapter
