The Daughter of Zion (Jerusalem) is left like a [deserted] shelter in a vineyard,
Like a watchman’s hut in a cucumber field, like a besieged city [isolated, surrounded by devastation].
If the Lord of hosts
Had not left us a few survivors,
We would be like Sodom,
We would be like Gomorrah.(A)
God Has Had Enough
Hear the word of the Lord [rulers of Jerusalem],
You rulers of [another] Sodom,
Listen to the law and instruction of our God,
You people of [another] Gomorrah.
New International Version
8 Daughter Zion(A) is left(B)
like a shelter in a vineyard,
like a hut(C) in a cucumber field,
like a city under siege.
9 Unless the Lord Almighty
had left us some survivors,(D)
we would have become like Sodom,
we would have been like Gomorrah.(E)
