Lamentations 3-5 English Standard Version (ESV)
Great Is Your Faithfulness
3 I am the man who has seen affliction
4 He has made my flesh and my skin waste away;
7 He has walled me about so that I cannot escape;
10 He is a bear lying in wait for me,
13 He drove into my kidneys
16 He has made my teeth grind on gravel,
19 Remember my affliction and my wanderings,
22 The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases;[b]
25 The Lord is good to those who wait for him,
28 Let him sit alone in silence
31 For the Lord will not
34 To crush underfoot
37 Who has spoken and it came to pass,
40 Let us test and examine our ways,
43 “You have wrapped yourself with anger and pursued us,
46 “All our enemies
49 “My eyes will flow without ceasing,
52 “I have been hunted like a bird
55 “I called on your name, O Lord,
58 “You have taken up my cause, O Lord;
61 “You have heard their taunts, O Lord,
64 “You will repay them,[c] O Lord,
The Holy Stones Lie Scattered
4 How the gold has grown dim,
2 The precious sons of Zion,
3 Even jackals offer the breast;
4 The tongue of the nursing infant sticks
5 Those who once feasted on delicacies
8 Now their face is blacker than soot;
9 Happier were the victims of the sword
10 The hands of compassionate women
11 The Lord gave full vent to his wrath;
12 The kings of the earth did not believe,
13 This was for the sins of her prophets
14 They wandered, blind, through the streets;
15 “Away! Unclean!” people cried at them.
16 The Lord himself[m] has scattered them;
17 Our eyes failed, ever watching
18 They dogged our steps
19 Our pursuers were swifter
20 The breath of our nostrils, the Lord's anointed,
21 Rejoice and be glad, O daughter of Edom,
22 The punishment of your iniquity, O daughter of Zion, is accomplished;
Restore Us to Yourself, O Lord
5 Remember, O Lord, what has befallen us;
Revelation 15 English Standard Version (ESV)
The Seven Angels with Seven Plagues
15 Then I saw another sign in heaven, great and amazing, seven angels with seven plagues, which are the last, for with them the wrath of God is finished.
2 And I saw what appeared to be a sea of glass mingled with fire—and also those who had conquered the beast and its image and the number of its name, standing beside the sea of glass with harps of God in their hands. 3 And they sing the song of Moses, the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb, saying,
“Great and amazing are your deeds,
5 After this I looked, and the sanctuary of the tent[b] of witness in heaven was opened, 6 and out of the sanctuary came the seven angels with the seven plagues, clothed in pure, bright linen, with golden sashes around their chests. 7 And one of the four living creatures gave to the seven angels seven golden bowls full of the wrath of God who lives forever and ever, 8 and the sanctuary was filled with smoke from the glory of God and from his power, and no one could enter the sanctuary until the seven plagues of the seven angels were finished.
