Lamentations 1:15-17 Lexham English Bible (LEB)

15 The Lord has rejected
    all my mighty ones in my midst.
He called an assembly against me,
    to crush my young men;
like in a wine press,
    the Lord has trodden on
the virgin daughter of Judah.
16 For these things, I am weeping,
    my eyes flow with tears;[a]
because a comforter is far from me,
    one to restore my life.
My sons are desolate
    because the enemy has prevailed.
17 Zion stretches out her hands;
    there is no one to comfort her.
Yahweh has commanded against Jacob,
    that those surrounding him[b] should be his enemies;
Jerusalem has become
    a defilement among them.


  1. Lamentations 1:16 Literally “my eye my eye is going down with water”
  2. Lamentations 1:17 NRSV translates “his neighbors”
