15 “The Lord has rejected
    all my mighty men inside my walls.
He brought an army against me
    to destroy my young men.
As if in a winepress, the Lord has crushed
    the capital city of Judah.

16 “I cry about these things.
    My eyes overflow with tears.
There is no one near to comfort me.
    There is no one who can give me strength again.
My children are left sad and lonely
    because the enemy has won.”

17 Jerusalem reaches out her hands,
    but there is no one to comfort her.
The Lord has commanded for the people of Jacob
    that their enemies surround them.
Jerusalem has become unclean
    like those around her.
