Lamentations 1:14-16 GOD’S WORD Translation (GW)

14 My rebellious acts are a heavy burden for me.
    They were tied together by God’s own hands.
    They were tied around my neck.
        He has weakened me with them.
        The Lord has handed me over to people I cannot oppose.[a]
15 The Lord has treated all the warriors inside my walls with contempt.
    He called an army to defeat my young men.
        The Lord trampled the people of Judah in a winepress.
16 I’m crying because of all these things.
    My eyes—my eyes flow with tears.
        No one can give me the comfort I need to keep me alive.
            Everyone is too far away from me.
                My children are devastated because my enemies have won.”
