Lamentations 1:12-17New International Version (NIV)
12 “Is it nothing to you, all you who pass by? Look around and see. Is any suffering like my suffering that was inflicted on me, that the Lord brought on me in the day of his fierce anger?
13 “From on high he sent fire, sent it down into my bones. He spread a net for my feet and turned me back. He made me desolate, faint all the day long.
14 “My sins have been bound into a yoke[a]; by his hands they were woven together. They have been hung on my neck, and the Lord has sapped my strength. He has given me into the hands of those I cannot withstand.
15 “The Lord has rejected all the warriors in my midst; he has summoned an army against me to[b] crush my young men. In his winepress the Lord has trampled Virgin Daughter Judah.
16 “This is why I weep and my eyes overflow with tears. No one is near to comfort me, no one to restore my spirit. My children are destitute because the enemy has prevailed.”
17 Zion stretches out her hands, but there is no one to comfort her. The Lord has decreed for Jacob that his neighbors become his foes; Jerusalem has become an unclean thing among them.
Lamentations 1:14Most Hebrew manuscripts; many Hebrew manuscripts and Septuagint He kept watch over my sins
