Lamentations 1:15-17 GOD’S WORD Translation (GW)
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.”
17 Zion holds out its hands.
No one offers it comfort.
The Lord has given this order about Jacob:
His own neighbors will become his opponents.
Jerusalem has become a filthy thing among them.
